Country Music Hall of Famer Not Slowing Down

Nashville, TN (October 27, 2011) – Although country great George Jones celebrated his 80th Birthday last month, he won’t need a rocking chair anytime soon. “The Possum” is keeping busy with 35 shows scheduled to date throughout the U.S. and Canada from now through November 2012. As Jones sings, “I don’t need a rocking chair…I do my rockin’ on the stage, you can’t put this possum in a cage.”

Jones said, "I'm always excited to get back out on the road and we're working up new shows and new songs. I'm feelin' great and givin' the road hell!"

George Jones, often referred to as the “the greatest living country singer,” first hit the charts in 1955 with his hit “Why Baby Why” and has since garnered over 140 more while touring extensively.
