Stars converging on Nashville to honor George Jones

Listen to George Jones on iHeartRadio

George Jones is missing a scheduled concert for the last time.  But the legendary country star has plenty of friends and fans who are more than willing to fill in. 

More than 70 stars are on board for "Playin' Possum: The Final NO Show" - a tribute event honoring the late Country Music Hall of Famer.  The date was slated to be Jones' last Nashville concert, and one of the final dates on his farewell tour.  He'd even lined up some guests to join him for the occasion, which had been dubbed the "George Jones & Friends" concert.  And when George passed away in April, instead of canceling the date it was turned into an all-star tribute event. 

Alan Jackson, Charlie Daniels, Tanya Tucker, and Brenda Lee are some of the artists who were on board for the original show.  And now they're on board for "The Final NO Show," along with Brad Paisley, Loretta Lynn, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, and Eric Church. 

The diverse lineup ranges from Bill Anderson to Megadeth, and also features Larry Gatlin, George Strait, Alabama, R&B star Sam Moore, and many others. 

"Playin' Possum: The Final NO Show" will take place at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena Friday night.
