Funeral services for country music superstar George Jones have been set, and will be open to the public. Jones passed away on April 26 from undisclosed causes. He was 81.
The funeral will be held May 2 at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House at 10 a.m. A private visitation for family, friends, and fellow performers will take place the previous evening.
His wife, Nancy Jones, issued a statement today saying, “Thanks to George’s friends, fans, and loved ones for the outpouring of love at this terrible time. I love you all."
A member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1956, Jones was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1992.
