Location: Von Braun Center, Huntsville, Alabama

Line-Up: Brad Paisley, Tanya Tucker, Dierks Bentley, Lorrie Morgan, Travis Tritt, Wynonna and more

An array of country mega-stars will gather to honour the life of George Jones, one of the genre's most beloved legends, at a one-night-only concert and television taping entitled Still Playin’ Possum: Music and Memories of George Jones.

Set to take place on 25th April 2023 at the Von Braun Centre in Huntsville, Alabama, artists including Brad Paisley, Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan, Dierks Bentley, Justin Moore, Trace Adkins, Jamey Johnson, Mark Chesnutt, Michael Ray, Sam Moore, Tracy Byrd and Tracy Lawrence will join forces during the night to reflect on an incredible catalogue of music, 10 years after Jones' death.

Since the concert's announcement, country stars Wynonna and Travis Tritt have also been added to the line-up. Wynonna is set to join forces with Jamey Johnson for an emotional rendition of one of George Jones and Tammy Wynette's classic duets.

“George Jones died on April 26, 2013, in Nashville, Tennessee”, his wife Nancy Jones said via a statement. “George made history and influenced artists from all genres and many of them will celebrate with us in April. The night will bring lots of emotion for the fans, our family, and anyone who just loved country music.”

Within two weeks of tickets being made available, the event sold out, highlighting the tremendous respect still held for the man known lovingly as ‘The Possum’.

Tickets to the VIP dinner with Nancy Jones, which will be held the night before the Still Playin’ Possum concert, are still on-sale. The prestigious dinner will be held at the Von Braun Center Ballroom.

Tickets to Nancy Jones’ pre-concert event on April 24 cost $200, and can be purchased here.
