Barrhead Agrena
5607 - 47th Street

Be part of 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/songerwriter 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.
