Legendary country star George Jones has passed away today at the age of 81.

George’s publicist Kirt Webster says Jones died Friday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville after being hospitalized with fever and irregular blood pressure.

Graham Brown were all previously confirmed to to join George Jones on the final concert of his career at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on November 22nd. Each of these performers were part of George’s hit recording, “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair.”

The sold out show was also set to feature appearances from previously announced special guests Garth Brooks, Kid Rock, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Shelby Lynne, Sam Moore, Lorrie Morgan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner and Gene Watson, among others.
