The Legend of George Jones comes to Slave Lake

Leader Staff

Saturday, November 3 is the day to see what CTV calls “A Great Night of Stories and Songs” and CFCW Radio calls an “incredible show”.

Alberta’s own country legend Duane Steele and his band present a tribute to country great George Jones in story and song.

The show starts at 7:30 at the Legacy Centre.

George Jones is considered by many to be the greatest country singer of all time.

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 that spanned five decades including duets with Tammy Wynette and 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.

Alberta’s Duane Steele is one of Canada’s top country recording artists and songwriters with a professional career dating back to 1984.

The multi-award winning artist with roots in our area has released five studio albums and one greatest hits album. He also has charted many singles on the Canadian country singles charts, including the Number One hit “Anita Got Married”.

Duane has toured the world headlining his own shows and opening for some of the hottest acts in country music including Shania Twain, Terri Clark, Trisha Yearwood and Sammy Kershaw.

Duane’s pure voice, musical knowledge and authentic country sound make him the ideal artist to pay tribute to the legendary George Jones.

Come early and enjoy some very reasonably priced chicken and ribs from local Back to Basics Catering.

Tickets are available at The Source, Rotary Library, Remax, the MRC and online at stagenorth.org.
