No Show Productions has announced a tribute to one of country music’s biggest names, George Jones. The tribute concert Still Playin’ Possum: Music and Memories of George Jones will play in theaters nationwide for one-day-only, October 17th, in association with Fathom Events.

The show was originally recorded on April 25, 2023, a day before the ten year anniversary of Jones’ passing, in Huntsville, Alabama in front of a sold-out crowd at the Von Braun Center.

“It is still hard to believe that George is gone.  He was loved by so many artists and fans.  We may not have him here in person, but we have his music to keep his memory alive,” says Nancy Jones, George’s wife.  “Filming this night was something special. The love for George was overwhelming!”
