After a bout of health complications recently, George Jones is apparently feeling strong and ready to hit the road once again. The legendary singer has announced his final headlining trek ever, the Grand Tour, which is set to take place in 2013.

Jones has finally decided that, after 50 years touring for country music fans, the time has come to slow down and cherish his time at home with his wife, children and grandchildren. “It is tough to stop doing what I love, but the time has come,” Jones says in a statement.

The iconic singer is also planning to release a new full-length album for his loving and loyal fans. The album will feature new tunes, some of which may be penned by another legendary great, Dolly Parton, who recently revealed she was writing for the project. She hopes to lend her vocals to the new Jones record, as well.

Dates for Jones’ 2013 Grand Tour will be announced soon. In the meantime, see where he’ll appear in 2012.
