(Webster) George Jones may have just turned 80-years-old last month but he's not slowing down.
"The Possum" is keeping busy with 35 shows scheduled to date throughout the U.S. and Canada from now through November 2012.
As Jones sings, "I don't need a rocking chair
I do my rockin' on the stage, you can't put this possum in a cage."
Jones said, "I'm always excited to get back out on the road and we're working up new shows and new songs. I'm feelin' great and givin' the road hell!"
George Jones, often referred to as the "the greatest living country singer," first hit the charts in 1955 with his hit "Why Baby Why" and has since garnered over 140 more while touring extensively. Fans can see the star perform hits such as "White Lightning," "He Stopped Loving Her Today," "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" and "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair" throughout North America on initial tour dates listed below.
