Country Music legend George Jones brings his unmistakable voice
to the Booth Amphitheatre on Saturday, April 25, 2009 at 7:30 pm.

Known as one of the finest voices in the history of country music, George
Jones began his illustrious career in 1955 when he made his chart debut with
“Why, Baby, Why.”  That single helped to plant the seeds of a career
spanning over five decades and earning him more charting singles (166) than
any artist in any format of music.  His unmistakable voice has graced some
of country music’s most enduring hits such as “White Lightning,” “She Thinks
I Still Care,” “Good Year For the Roses,” “The Race Is On,” “Who’s Gonna
Fill Their Shoes,” and two Grammy award winning songs, “Choices” and the
classic “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”

Jones has been the recipient of countless awards throughout his career, from
Billboard Magazine’s “Most Promising New Country Vocalist” in 1956 to
country music’s ultimate recognition: his 1992 induction into the Country
Music Hall Of Fame.  In 2002, he received the prestigious National Medal of
Arts Honor from President George W. Bush, the nations highest honor for
artistic excellence.

Jones shows no signs of slowing down. As a recording artist, his most
recent projects include Hits I Missed. And One I Didn’t in 2005, and 2006’s
Jones Sings Haggard, Haggard Sings Jones: Kickin’ Out the Floodlights Again.
In addition, Jones maintains an active tour schedule, headlining nearly 100
concert dates a year.
