Late country legend George Jones was to have given what was billed as his "final Nashville concert" on November 22, along with a star-studded lineup of guests.  Well, the show, at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, will still go on -- as a tribute to Jones .

Jones's widow, Nancy , reports that she's already contacted many of the stars who were previously slated to appear at the concert, and quite a few of them have agreed to honor their commitments, including soul legend Sam Moore , Charlie Daniels , Garth Brooks , Travis Tritt and The Oak Ridge Boys .  "We are going to honor George one final time," she says.

Not all the artists who were announced for the show -- and there are many more -- have been re-confirmed, however, so stay tuned for more information about that, or check GeorgeJones.com for updates.  Tickets for the show had already sold out prior to Jones's death on April 26.

Among the other stars who'd previously signed on to participate in Jones's farewell show the concert are Don McLean , Kenny Rogers , Cyndi Lauper , Tanya Tucker , Crystal Gayle , Pam Tillis , Randy Travis and Billy Ray Cyrus .
