The all-star concert for George Jones, originally planned to be his final show, will now be a musical tribute. Jones' wife Nancy confirmed the Nov. 22 event in a statement: "Everyone has been asking if we will still do the show. I have asked Garth [Brooks], Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, the Oak Ridge Boys, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson and others, and they all said, 'Yes, I am still going to do it.' So with all the artists still planning on coming, we are going to honor George one final time." The show was sold out at the time of Jones' death on April 26 although more tickets may become available.
