Doors: 7:00 pm | Show: 9:00 pm | Tickets staring at: $39.99

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 and  became the symbol of traditional country music. His music continues to inspire artists of all genres. 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.

Be part of a special evening dedicated to one of the greatest artists in country music history – Merle  Haggard. In “The Story of the Hag”, JUNO-nominated singer Jess Lee will take you on a journey through Haggard’s incredible life and time  through stories and songs. With an incredible career spanning six decades, Haggard rose from poverty and prison to international fame through his songs about outlaws, underdogs, the heartbroken and the hard-living. Haggard wrote songs for the working class to drink to, dance to, and cry to. He notched 40 No. 1 hits, including “Working  Man  Blues”,  “Mama  Tried”,  “Silver  Wings” and one of the most famous country songs of all time, “Okie From Muskogee”. The show also includes the stories from Haggard’s life that echo the songs he sang; he was born poor, raised in a converted railway boxcar and turned 21 in prison before turning his life around to become a country music hero.
