Country musicians possess a knack for storytelling, which explains why most artists in the genre started out as kindergarten teachers or Stephen King.

Legendary country crooner George Jones cracks open a frothing keg of No. 1 hits and heartbreakers as his rare tour chugs through the historic Genesee Theatre. A Country Music Hall of Famer and recipient of the National Medal of Arts, George Jones charted the blueprint of modern country music with his distinctive voice, brutally honest lyrics, and cast-iron liver. From rockabilly stompers such as "White Lightning" to 10-hankie saline spigots such as "He Stopped Loving Her Today," his unflinchingly confessional classics will strike a chord with generations of fans during a high-energy performance that forever shuts the door on his "No Show" days. Also known as "The Possum" for his facial features and immunity to rabies, Jones continues to out-moonshine modern country whippersnappers, even at the tender age of 80.

Genesee Theatre

Genesee Theatre began its life with a sellout. Opening its doors on Christmas Day, 1927, it welcomed audiences to four sold-out movie screenings, but those flickering stories weren't the only attraction. A $25,000 pipe organ—and that's in old-timey dollars—immediately caught the eye, while Italian marble, a stunning chandelier, and the building's Spanish Renaissance–style architecture dazzled.

Over the years, many changes occurred, the glamorous quotient rising or dipping with the times and the theater closing altogether in 1989. But when it reopened again in 2004, it was back in full force. Antique chandeliers and fixtures of the period had been brought in from around the country, the luxe carpet had been recreated from a 1927 photograph, and all the dust bunnies had been sent packing with generous severance packages. Yet not all the updates were of the old-fashioned sort: the stage was doubled in size, and cutting-edge technology was brought in to give the theatre's high-voltage visitors, from comedians to musicians, the star treatment.
