George Jones On Grand Tour 2012

The country music legend often referred to as the "the greatest living country singer" will mark the end of an era with a farewell tour for his fans titled "The Grand Tour".  After over fifty years of touring, Jones has decided he is ready to slow down and spend more time with his wife, children and grandchildren.  
Jones:  "It is tough to stop doing what I love, but the time has come."  As a tribute to his loyal fans he wants to tour one more year and let them know, this will be his last.
The Grand Tour will visit approximately 60 cities in 2013.  The star will perform many of his hits such as "White Lightning," "He Stopped Loving Her Today," "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" and "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair".

The legend also plans to record a new studio album for the fans, and Dolly Parton has been writing songs for him.  It will be an album he loves and wants to do.  There is no scheduled street date at this time.
After a brief bout with an upper respiratory infection earlier this year, Jones has returned to the road.  Fans can see him at his upcoming concerts listed here.
