George Jones photo courtesy of Webster PR. The November 22 sold-out George Jones tribute concert, now officially dubbed the “Playin’ Possum! The Final NO SHOW,” has gotten even bigger. Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Loretta Lynn, Ronnie Milsap, Big & Rich, Lee Ann Womack, Craig Morgan, Thompson Square, Bill Anderson and Megadeth have all been added to the lineup, which already includes some of the biggest names in music. “The evening of George Jones songs is going to be the best musical tribute Nashville has ever seen,” Nancy Jones, George’s widow, said. “We have many surprises planned, and I just wish George could be here to see what we are doing for him.” Photos: Remembering George Jones >> “George Jones had a way of putting his finger right into your wounds and letting you know, ‘I understand. I know your pain,’” said Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. “While ‘Wild Irish Rose’ may be an unexpected choice with so many great songs to choose from, it is a perfect example of Mr. Jones’ way of reaching inside every one of us, and making us aware that we all have pain. By far the most pain a man can endure, sadly as so many of our Vietnam Vets know, is to come home and find no one wants him. In the end, as so many do, they end their days inside of a bottle, as ‘Rose’ knows too well.” Previously-announced artists scheduled to perform at the sold-out show include George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire, Alabama, Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, and others. George Jones, who was often referred to as the “the greatest living country singer,” was on his farewell tour titled “The Grand Tour” when he passed away. ShareThis

Keith Urban photo courtesy of Capitol Nashville. Keith Urban’s Light the Fuse Tour 2013 has already played a number of venues over the summer, with tour dates on the schedule that take him into 2014. He has made it a point to reach as many fans as possible during his shows. He even created a special stage just for amphitheater shows, which is constructed on the lawn. “Midway through the show, I go out there with my drummer and bass player and we do a few songs, stone-cold three-piece,” Keith said. “There’s no instruments supporting us from the stage or anything else. It’s just three guys on this tiny little stage, and we do a bunch of songs as a raw three-piece band, and it’s so fun to play like that. We plug in, and everything that you’re hearing is coming from that little stage.” Keith will return to the stage on Friday, October 18 in Omaha, Nebraska. His latest single, “We Were Us,” features Miranda Lambert and is at radio now. ShareThis

You talk to most any independent country, roots, or Americana artist, and to a man they will tell you their fortunes tend to be better in the European market. With so many European tours and the continued spread of American country music, it was only a matter of time before country began to rub off on the locals and American roots music spread like wildfire throughout the Old World.
