Nancy Jones plans memorial for anniversary of George Jones' death
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year since country music lost one of its greatest and most legendary voices—George Jones. And while his passing was marked with an all-star tribute concert last November with Alan Jackson, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, Eric Church, Charlie Daniels and more, George’s widow, Nancy, has something more intimate planned to mark the one-year anniversary of his passing.
On April 26 at 1 p.m., Nancy has invited friends and fans to join her at Nashville’s Woodlawn Cemetery, where she will plant two dogwood trees at the “He Stopped Loving Her Today” monument.
“This day is going to be bittersweet,” said Nancy in a release. “I know how much people loved George and the love has continued even a year later. I am so fortunate for the friends and fans that George and I made through the years. I want everyone to come celebrate with us, not because he is no longer with us, but to keep his legacy alive.”
