PBS To Premiere ‘Still Playin’ Possum: Music & Memories Of George Jones’
“Still Playin’ Possum: Music & Memories of George Jones,” the mega-concert celebrating Jones’ legacy and music, was recorded back in April and will premiere on PBS’ Great Performances this fall, with an exact date yet-to-be-announced.
Filmed in front of a live audience at Propst Arena at The Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama, the all-star tribute concert included Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Wynonna, Travis Tritt, Jelly Roll, Tanya Tucker, Trace Adkins, Sara Evans, Justin Moore, Jamey Johnson, Joe Nichols, Aaron Lewis, Michael Ray, Uncle Kracker, Lorrie Morgan, Tracy Byrd, Tracy Lawrence, The Isaacs, Dillon Carmichael, T. Graham Brown, Gretchen Wilson, Sam Moore, Janie Fricke, and Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke, with a special appearance by Randy Travis.
The concert brought many of Jones’ greatest hits to the stage. Performers entertained the audiences with renditions of classics such as “The Grand Tour,” “Tennessee Whiskey,” “White Lightning,” “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” and many more.
“Thank you to the fans and artists who traveled from all over to be in Huntsville, Alabama, for this incredible tribute to George,” says George Jones’ widow and executive producer of the show, Nancy Jones. “Everyone from the producers to the performers created an evening we will never forget and for those who couldn’t be there in person, this is your chance to have your own front-row seat. I hope everyone that attended or gets to see it on television will enjoy it and remember their favorite George song.”
