MEGADETH TO PERFORM AT GEORGE JONES TRIBUTE CONCERT TONIGHT

Megadeth will take part in remembering a country music legend at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena tonight, as part of a tribute concert honoring the late Country Music Hall of Famer George Jones.

Megadeth will contribute a performance of Jones' song "Wild Irish Rose". Dave Mustaine commented today, "I am honoring George's belief in the veterans, which is the best way I know to show respect to his legacy, and to his wife and family".

Megadeth is part of an extensive and primarily country music lineup for the event, dubbed "Playin' Possum! The Final NO Show". Kid Rock and R&B star Sam Moore are also on board for the concert, along with Charlie Daniels, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, and many, many more.
