Special Guest John Howie Jr.
Aug 18 , 2012
George Jones, the greatest living country singer, first hit the charts in 1955 with “Why Baby Why.” 57 years and 140 hits later, he brings his timeless voice and songs to DPAC, the Durham Performing Arts Center on August 18, 2012.
George Jones set the standard for country singers Number Ones like “She Thinks I Still Care,” “Walk Through This World With Me,” “The Grand Tour” and “Yesterday's Wine” (with Merle Haggard) have filled our lives with the sweet, sad and instantly recognizable voice of a man who has indeed lived to tell it all.
Although he celebrated his 80th birthday last year, George Jones won’t need a rocking chair anytime soon. “The Possum” is keeping busy with shows scheduled throughout the U.S. and Canada from now through November 2012. His Texas honky-tonk style made him well-known in country music long before he ever reached commercial success. Jones has garnered 13 Number Ones and 30 Top Fives and is one of country music's best-loved forefathers.
