George Jones - Stars Salute George Jones On Stage In Nashville And At Stagecoach

Stars took to the stage at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday night (26Apr13) for a radio broadcast that became a tribute to the late George Jones.

Friday and Saturday (27Apr13) night's live shows were full of memories of the music of Jones, who died last week (26Apr13).

Kristen Kelly, Mark Chesnutt, Jimmy Newman, bluegrass singer Rhonda Vincent and gospel star Jason Crabb were among the locals who performed the singer/songwriter's classics and Brad Paisley made a surprise appearance to honour his old friend with a medley of Jones hits.

Jones was also remembered by the acts at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California, where Toby Keith, Joe Nichols and Trace Adkins saluted the late singer with songs.

Jones' public funeral will take place on Thursday morning (02May13) at the Grand Ole Opry.
