George Jones - George Jones To Retire From The Stage After One More Grand Tour

Country legend George Jones is to retire from touring after one final 60-city U.S. trek.
The singer/songwriter will hit the road for the last time in 2013 for The Grand Tour - which is also the title of one of his many country chart-toppers.
The 80 year old says, "It is tough to stop doing what I love, but the time has come."
And he'll have an amazing project to promote - Dolly Parton is writing new songs with Jones for his next album.
Jones returned to the stage in June (12) following a stint in hospital.
The veteran musician, known as The Possum, was initially treated for an upper respiratory tract infection in March (12) and was re-admitted to hospital in Tennessee in May (12) when he failed to recover from the condition.
