Statement from Ford Park/SMG about death of George Jones
BEAUMONT, TX April 26, 2013 –
Ford Park and SMG staff joins with the entire music community in grieving the passing of the great, one-of-a-kind George Jones. We were honored to have hosted this legendary performer twice….once with Merle Haggard in a standing room only (or should we say dancing room only) crowd on March 24, 2006 and again on June 15, 2007 with Loretta Lynn.
Hailing from Southeast Texas, he had not only fans but friends in the area. Many came out to see him and shared funny and poignant stories with us about the ‘old days.’ He touched us all with his songs and will be remembered, referred to and missed. His influence on country music is indelible.
