The George Jones final Nashville concert, to be held on Friday, November 22, 2013, at the Bridgestone Arena, continues to boast a roster of ‘who’s who’ that will be in attendance. Radio and television personalities Lorianne Crook & Charlie Chase, Ralph Emery, Bill Cody, Larry Black, Rick Marino & Lisa Manning, Bill Mack, and Keith Bilbrey are all set to take part in the evening ceremonies.

“Throughout my career I have made lots of friends,” says Jones. “I would not have had a career that lasted 50 years without all of these great radio personalities. They always were so good to me and always made me feel like I was somebody whether I had a song on the radio or not. I am forever grateful to them.”

In addition, country legend Barbara Mandrell will make a rare appearance to celebrate George Jones’ career. “I love Barbara! She asked me to sing on her song “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool” in 1981 and that song soon became a #1 record for us. I was honored to be part of her Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony a few years ago, as she is just one of the greatest singers of all time,” adds Jones. “She is not just a good singer, but she is my good friend. I am so happy that Barbara is coming to the Nashville show.”

Although still 8 months away, the sure-to-be unforgettable show is already gearing up to be a star-studded event with some historical moments and lots of surprises. More artists will continue to be announced.

Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Music City’s legendary honky-tonk, will celebrate its 53rd Birthday in downtown Nashville on November 21st with a Broadway street-party hosted by Great American Country (GAC) personality Storme Warren.

“The Tootsie’s Birthday Bash has become an annual event that everyone looks forward to,” says Tootsie’s proprietor Steve Smith. “We kicked it off at the Ryman with Kris Kristofferson, Terri Clark, Mel Tillis, and Jamey Johnson a few years back. Then Kid Rock and The Kentucky HeadHunters took the party to the street on Broadway. Last year Dierks Bentley, Randy Houser, and Troy Gentry kicked it up a bit, and who knows who will be coming this year!”

 

Tootsie’s is known to have been used as a “green room” to some of the greatest Opry stars including Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb. “Tootsies is where the stars would come to wet their whistles and pick their guitars,” adds Smith.
