Cross Country Taping With Jones and Haggard Postponed

The CMT Cross Country taping with George Jones and Merle Haggard scheduled for Wednesday night (Aug. 9) near Nashville has been postponed after unforeseen circumstances forced Haggard to return home to the West Coast earlier than planned. Jones and Haggard, longtime friends, have reunited in the studio after 25 years for a new album, Kicking Out the Footlights … Again, to be released Oct. 24 on Bandit Records.
