Country legend’s FINAL tour to visit approximately 60 cities

Plans to record a new album in the near future

Nashville, TN (August 14, 2012) – In 2013, George Jones,
the country music icon 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 was quoted as saying
“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 or at
