George Jones

GEORGE JONES: He's known as The Voice, and even if his pipes now have a few rusty spots, you must see 76-year-old George Jones. As with Kris Kristofferson at last year's Stagecoach fest, his songbook alone will bring tears to concertgoers' eyes: Songs such as "He Stopped Loving Her Today," "The Grand Tour" and "The Race Is On" capture the stoic, survival-minded fatalism of that generation some call the Greatest, now slipping away. Honor Jones while he's still with us. (Palomino, 8:30-9:30 p.m.)
