      George Jones

      One of the best known voices in the history of country music, George Jones will bring his unmistakable voice to Value City Arena on February 14.  Jones began his illustrious career in 1955 with his chart debut Why, Baby, Why - a single that planted the seeds of a career spanning five decades.  He has earned more chart singles (166) than any artist in any format and his unmistakable voice has graced some of country musics most enduring hits - White Lightning, She Thinks I Still Care, Good Year For the Roses, The Race Is On, Whos Gonna Fill Their Shoes, and two Grammy award winning songs, Choices and the classic He Stopped Loving Her Today. 

      Jones is the recipient of countless awards from Billboards Most Promising New Country Vocalist in 1956 to his 1992 induction into the Country Music Hall Of Fame.  In 2002, he received the National Medal of Arts Honor, the nations highest honor for artistic excellence.   George shows no signs of slowing down.  Recent projects include Hits I Missedâ&128;¦And One I Didnt in 2005, and 2006s Jones Sings Haggard, Haggard Sings Jones: Kickin Out the Floodlights Again.  Jones maintains an active tour schedule, headlining nearly 100 concert dates a year.  

      The show will open with CONWAY TWITTY - THE MAN, THE MUSIC, THE LEGEND, THE MUSICAL - a tribute to  Music Icon (55 1 Hits) CONWAY TWITTY whose death in 1993 left a void in the world of Country Music.  The tribute is Twitty&39;s story told through the eyes and heart of his children - a loving musical scrapbook of touching memories - funny and sincere.  Says creator/ director Randy Johnson,Conway Twitty is an American Musical Legend and a loving family man who never forgot his humble beginnings. That is the truth and that is the musical I have created. The new musical has been called an entertainment event comparable only to Conway&39;s extraordinary live performances. |
