Classic country fans will be in for a very special treat, with fantastic sound and great views of the stage from every seat, this could be George Jones best show ever in the Triangle," said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC.
Jones was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1992, and in 1996 he told his story in the best-selling autobiography "I Lived To Tell It All." He earned his second Grammy in 1999 and received the 2002 National Medal of Arts from President George W. Bush at a White House ceremony. On Feb. 11, George Jones will be awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy.
