The Legend of George Jones featuring Duane Steele
September 25, 2019 (Wednesday) - 7:30 pm
Join us as we open this season’s Concert Series with a touch of some of the most memorable country music ever created! A special tribute to the man considered to be the greatest country singer of all time - George Jones. In a career that lasted more than 50 years, “the Possum” evolved from a young honky-tonker to a music icon as he recorded more than 150 albums and became the symbol of traditional country music. His music continues to inspire artists of all genres. Award-winning singer/songwriter Duane Steele and his band will take you on a journey of Jones’ life through stories and songs. Steele will sing the hits of Jones that spanned five decades including his duets with Tammy Wynette to the No. 1 country song of all time “He Stopped Loving Her Today”. You’ll also hear the stories of Jones’ life which echoed the country songs he sang - filled with success, failure, hard-drinking and heartbreak. The Legend of George Jones is a must-see for Jones fans and country fans alike.
