    Note From Keith To George Jones

    This past Friday, ahead of plans for a farewell Grand Tour, country legend and friend of Keith, George Jones, passed away. A sold-out finale concert was scheduled for November 22 in Nashville, which was to feature a host of special guests, including The Oak Ridge Boys, Kid Rock and Cyndi Lauper.

    From this handwritten note, obtained by The Tennessean, it seems that Keith was to be a surprise guest. Keith promised to be at the concert "by hook or by crook".

    Keith made guest appearances on two of Mr. Jones' recordings - on the 2005 greatest hits release, The Bradley Barn Sessions and on the title track of 2008's Burn Your Playhouse Down: The Unreleased Duets.

    We at KeithRichards.com offer our deep condolences to Jones' family and friends. Fans are welcome to do the same at GeorgeJones.com.
