George Jones and Friends: Keeping Country Alive

Adult Ticket
3.5 Stars
Based on 2 reviews

George Jones and Friends: Keeping Country Alive is a brilliant Branson tribute to country music royalty!  To honor the country superstar, George Geisser steps away from his popular role playing fiddle and steel guitar for The Re-Cliners, the amazing band behind C.J. Newsom in her Branson show, Classic Country’s Patsy Cline & Friends.  It’s his first time headlining a major Branson show, and he’s already winning over fans of the country music legend with his spot-on vocals and his sincere reverence for the man and his music.  It’s not easy to pay tribute to a star that shined as brightly as the late and much beloved George Jones.  He was truly larger-than-life, earning accolades and awards throughout his career, including seven awards from the Country Music Association and five from the Academy of Country Music.  He was also blessed with two Grammy Awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and had two songs - “He Stopped Loving Her Today” and “She Thinks I Still Care” - in the Grammy Hall of Fame.  And he received the rare and treasured acknowledgement for his work from the Kennedy Center Honors.  

In addition to the songs for which Jones received awards, Geisser performs several of his hits, including “The Race is On” and “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair.”  Although George Geisser could fill his show with the enormous George Jones catalog, he changes it up a bit just to keep things interesting by sharing the music of other country legends, including Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Randy Travis, and George Jones' frequent duet partner, Tammy Wynette.

"Needs to stop being political"

Rating of 3 stars  Reviewed May 25, 2019
We recently attended his show he is talented, but maybe stop being political.I believe George was commenting about Merle Haggard being the first person to leave the jail house and go to the white house.He then commented something to the fact that he "wished the person in the white house would go to the jail house". Just a suggestion, we were sort of offended, and there could be others that may be also.Maybe you should reconsider these comments. Just a thought!

"George Jones Sound Alike!"

Rating of 4 stars  Reviewed September 28, 2015
George Geisser is a talented performer who sounds a lot like George Jones. He is quite at ease when performing but a bit uneasy when just talking. During the show you will also hear hits from other country greats, such as Willie Nelson, Randy Travis, and Waylon Jennings, All is all, if you are a George Jones fan I would highly recommend this show!!
