George Jones Life Story Headed to the Big ScreenJun 19, 2013 -- 9:00am
- The story isn’t over for George Jones. 28 Entertainment announced the acquisition of the story rights to George Jones and his wife Nancy for a feature film project about the incredible life and career of the iconic country singer. “Over the years we have been approached to make George’s life into a feature film, but it was not until Dennis Baxter became involved that we were confident the story could be told accurately. George and I started working with Dennis six years ago in crafting the life-long story. Knowing George had input in this film and that it will be told the way he wanted it told.” said Nancy Jones. No word on when the productions will be ready for the public. Who would be a good fit to play The Possum?
- And while Darius Rucker is just one month into his True Believers tour, he’s getting siked for the next leg. In an interview, Rucker noted he would like to tour with Sheryl Crow. Could be an interesting mix with two crossover artists on one tour. But it’s out of Rucker’s hands now. In regards to the possibility he says, “I hope. I said ‘yeah,’ and I think she said ‘yeah’ too. So now it’s in the hands of all the booking agents, but I hope it happens.”
