“Still Playin’ Possum: Music & Memories of George Jones” has added Aaron Lewis, Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke, Dillon Carmichael, Gretchen Wilson, Joe Nichols, Randy Travis and Sara Evans to the growing list of performers for the tribute show on April 25.
Set to take place at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama, the event will be filmed for an upcoming television special, and features tributes to Jones and his enduring legend. Among the special moments on tap for the evening are Wynonna and Jamey Johnson paying tribute to George & Tammy Wynette in a special performance of “Golden Ring.”
With the recent configuration of the stage, the producers of the show are releasing around 300 extra tickets, which will go on sale today through TicketMaster and the Von Braun Box Office. In addition, the Nancy Jones VIP dinner, taking place the night before the concert at the Von Braun Center Ballroom, will include appearances by Travis, Jeannie Pruett, songwriter Billy Yates, Tony Jackson and others to be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets are $200 and will include a sit-down meal as well as a photo opportunity with Nancy Jones.
“I am so thankful to the loyal fans of country music. George’s music still lives on and I am so honored that so many of George’s fellow artists and friends have agreed to come to celebrate him,” says Nancy Jones. “This special night would not be the same without so many people doing what they do best – from the producers of the show to the artists bringing their voices to the fans buying the tickets.”
