George Jones will go out with a cosmic bang when a colossal constellation of stars joins him at the Bridgestone Arena for his final Nashville performance.

Garth Brooks has been added to the star-studded lineup of George Jones’ farewell concert Nov. 22 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. You might recall the last time Garth played Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, he booked one show in 2010 to help flood victims and that turned into nine sold-out shows.

Oh, and just in case Garth needs help selling out the George Jones farewell show, Kid Rock, Dierks Bentley, Kenny Rogers, Josh Turner, Montgomery Gentry, Randy Travis and Jamey Johnson are just some of the artists also on the bill.

Tanya Tucker, Jamey Johnson, Charlie Daniels, Lorrie Morgan, Randy Travis and “Farewell Party” singer Gene Watson will be joining the country music icon onstage. The Nov. 22 concert is the last in an expected 60-date final tour for the legend, whose set list includes such classic hits as “White Lightning” and “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”

The Grand Tour kicks off Feb. 7 in Lakeland, Fla. Additional guests are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Looks like the Possum’s got friends in high places.

    I’ve been trying to purchase tickets for this as soon as I found out about it….but no luck. I think they sold out. I wish I would have known sooner :( My family and I are huge fans of George and Country music. What a line up!!! Wow!
