Vince Gill, Craig Morgan, and Gretchen Wilson are on board for the upcoming George Jones tribute concert. 

The late country legend's wife, Nancy Jones, has unveiled what she's calling the "full performer list" for "Playin' Possum: The Final NO Show," which has grown to more than 70 artists. 

The extensive lineup also features new Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Bobby Bare and other veteran stars including Little Jimmy Dickens, Jeannie Seely, and Stonewall Jackson.  Brad Paisley, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Blake Shelton, and Miranda Lambert are just a few of the many other artists confirmed for the show.  Nancy adds that "some surprise guests" will also appear. 

She also admits that the concert "might be long" but she doesn't think the audience will mind, since they "will witness the best musical tribute Nashville has ever seen." 

The sold-out "Playin' Possum: The Final NO Show" will take place at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on November 22nd - the date that was supposed to be Jones' final Nashville concert.
