George Jones says tour will be last

Country music icon George Jones says he's ready for one last go-round on tour before retiring from the road.

Jones said recently that 2013's The Grand Tour will be his last after more than 50 years on the road. He plans about 60 dates and said it's hard to quit doing what he loves, “but the time has come.”

Jones, 81, is widely considered the greatest living country singer, and his contributions to the genre, such as “He Stopped Loving Her Today” and “White Lightning,” remain standards. He's back on the road this year after postponing or canceling some dates due to an upper respiratory infection that led to a pair of hospital stays.
