Get Well Soon, George Jones



Bummer news came along late today, when we discovered that — due to an upper respiratory infection — old George "No Show" Jones will have a very legitimate excuse for canceling a handful of dates through next month. The release reads as follows:

Today, Country Music Hall of Fame member George Jones was admitted into a Nashville area hospital, where he will undergo testing and evaluation for a lingering upper respiratory infection. Concerts scheduled through June will be rescheduled, where possible.

No more details are available at this time.

Now, of all the canceled shows, the only one that was to take place here in Tennessee was The Possum's May 25 date at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills. See the rest of Jones' tour schedule here.

We at the Scene/Cream would like to of course extend our best wishes to Jones, who turned 80 last year. Get well, Possum. We hope you're back to spending time with your dog, your wife and your ATV soon.
