On Nov. 1 in Bassano “The Legend of George Jones” concert starts at 7:30 p.m. 


The Bassano Arts Council sponsored event starts at the Bassano Community Hall (610 2 Avenue Rd). Cost is $25.
Be a part of a special tribute to the man considered to be the greatest country singer of all time – George Jones. In a career that lasted more than 50 years, “the Possum” evolved from a young honky-tonker to a music icon as he recorded more than 150 albums. Award-winning singer/songwriter Duane Steele and his band will take you on a journey of Jones’ life through stories and songs. Steele will sing the hits of Jones that spanned five decades including his duets with Tammy Wynette to the No. 1 country song of all time, “He Stopped Loving Her Today”. You’ll also hear the stories of Jones’ life which echoed the country songs he sang – filled with success, failure, hard-drinking and heartbreak. The Legend of George Jones is a must-see for Jones fans and country fans alike.
This event is part of the Annual Concert Series. A season ticket for four concerts costs $60 – an incredibly good deal because tickets at the door are $25 per show! Tickets can be purchased at the Town of Bassano Office, the Brooks Credit Union, or Bassano’s M and M Auto Service, (301- 11th Street Bassano). Please call Linda at 403-641-4280 if you require more info!
