The Statlers have always been my all-time favorite to listen to. And I would always wait for Jimmy to take those notes to places no one else can, especially at the end of some of their gospel segments. My husband and I never missed an episode of their shows when they were on television and we have a few of them on DVD now.
And it was always my dream to get to a concert, but I never found a place close enough to get there. Wonder if Jimmy would ever consider New Brunswick, Canada as a venue or even as close as Bangor, Maine so I could possibly have an opportunity to go.
I’m sorry to say that he doesn’t get up that way often. It’s probably been a couple of years since he’s played anywhere in Canada. He only plays venues that contact us, we don’t contact them. We would love to come up that way though!! I hope one day it works out!
Would love to see him come to Newfoundland, as well. Been BIG fans for years
I wish y’all’s would come out to Las Vegas. I missed
Y’all’s when you played at Central Christian Church
Several years ago.
Jimmy Fortune has always been one of my favorite country and gospel music performers. Next month, August 20th, Jimmy will be performing in Minden, NV. I Certainly plan on being there. I am the Pastor of a small Southern Baptist church just 10 miles away in Carson City, the Sate Capitol. i have always dreamed of having Jimmy Fortune sing and play in my church but never thought that possible since we don’t get this caliber performer in our area very often at all. I know it’s probably still just a dream but I am wondering if there is any possibility that that he could sing at the First Baptist Church of Carson City on Sunday A.M. Aug. 21? It would be such a privilege for us to host a concert in our A.M. Worship service August 21st. Thanks so much for listening,
Pastor Bob Chambers
Pastor Bob – Jimmy has to leave early that morning to catch his flight. He is flying out of an airport in CA.
Nina – I am considering purchasing tickets for Jimmy’s New Year’s Eve show in Shipshewana. Is Jimmy the only performer, or is he with others? If others….who and how long does he play?
There are two others on the show, John Schmid and John Branyan. Both do a 50 minute show. I think Jimmy will be doing his full show at 75 or 90 minutes.
Finally got to see Jimmy in December when he came to Weatherford,Texas. We really enjoyed the show and can’t wait to see him in person again. I see he is scheduled to come to Abilene March 13th. Can you please tell me if Jimmy is the featured singer or just part of a multi person show. I’m not familiar with the Country Gold show format. We are serious “Jimmy” fans and could listen to him sing for hours . We are really hoping the show is all Jimmy. We will be driving a good distance and no matter who else is featured, we would be disappointed if we only got a few minutes of our favorite. Thanks for any info you provide.
P.S. Hey Nina….thanks for sharing your man with us!
There are other artists on that show. Leroy VanDyke, Jim Ed Brown, TG Sheppard and Helen Cornelious.
Any plans for any shows in New England? My mom saw Jimmy down in West Palm Beach today and we would love to have the chance to see him up this way! Thank you! :O)
The only shows we have on the schedule close to you now is PA in the fall. Please thank your mom for coming to the show in FL.
When is the next possible visit to SD, ND, or MT?? Lorilynn is already asking? :+) Thank You.
We don’t have anything on the schedule right now but we probably will by the end of the year.
Does Jimmy have any plans to come to Alabama?
Right now there aren’t any shows on the schedule for Alabama. There are a few in the FL panhandle if that’s not too far.
I’ve had the absolute pleasure of meeting Jimmy twice now and it was such an honor to my mother and I how sweet and humble he really was. We just loved meeting him and look forward to seeing him again asap! He is just a lovable sweetheart. 🙂
Please come back to chattanooga tn used to go to shows here with my dad we loved you guys still have pics of you I took like 20 years ago
My husband and I saw Jimmy with Buddy Jewel and Billy Yates at Pucketts In Franklin,Tn last night and let me tell you what an awesome show! He’s such a witness. I’ve admired Jimmy since he was with The Statlers. Always touched me with his amazing voice and last night I saw how humbling and sweet he really is. I’m so honored that I had the chance to see him in person and to be uplifted. I hope he will soon be back again! Thanks for sharing you music and your God given voice with the world. You truly are an amazing person. Any plans to be back in Nashville area this year for a show?
Does jimmy ever come towards Houston area?
Jimmy has some shows coming up in Texas but none around Houston right now.
Please consider Dosey Doe again in The Woodlands,Texas. Maybe in April on your way to Corsicana,Texas. I was out of town during his last visit. Thank you
Saw Jimmy with The Statlers many times over the years out here in The Pacific Northwest. Am thrilled to see some Arizona dates listed on the schedule. Would love to get some dates up in Seattle or Portland Oregon area. He is still loved out here in the upper left hand corner of America too. Any plans or dialogue about that happening ever?
WV State Fair tickets are not available on the site?
This is a free stage so you just buy tickets to get in the fair.
Is there a cruise set for 2016?
Yes there is but details are not final so we will announce it later.
How can I get tickets for the March 28th show in Lovingston, VA? Also will Jimmy be doing a Christmas show in Amherst again this year? We just loved 2014 Christmas show!
Here is a link to buy tickets online https://www.ticketriver.com/event/13227
Some students will be selling them and you can also get them from the school.
Hope to see you there!
Nina thanks so much. I hope to get tickets soon. The snow is holding me up on that right now. This concert is where my daughter Emmie wanted her daddy and me to take her for her 11th birthday. We are really looking forward to it.
Caught your show yesterday, great job and the audio presentation of your guitar work was really special. Where i was sitting, not able to tell if you worked acoustic, or wireless? If acoustic then wow! Thanks for sharing. Charlie, Carol, Virgil & Margaret
It was acoustic. Thank you so much for coming to the show!
We saw Jimmy last night at the Palatka Blue Grass Festival – We love hearing you sing – Jimmy! This was our first Blue Grass Fest – we went because of Jimmy. Can’t wait to hear you again — totally awesome voice – and a wonderful personal ministry. Jimmy is so humble and a great witness. Thank you, Jimmy Fortune. May God continue to bless your ministry, your talent, and those dear to you.
Thank you for coming!! We had a great time there!
I noticed Jimmy will be in Monticello, AR in June! Is he the only performer at this show and will he be doing any more shows in Arkansas? We saw him in Branson last year and loved his show!!!
This is an acoustic show and I believe there a half hour opener. Hope to see you there!
Hi Nina & Jimmy
My husband and I were at the Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale Florida last evening – Jimmy and the talent with him were just wonderful. We wished the show lasted longer. Your voice and wonderful talent is incredible. We loved the gospel songs & the spirituality of the show. Jimmy – when you sang The Wall – & the gospel song – I Believe – to your mom – WOW!!!! Thanks for a great show.
Jeanne & Bob
Enjoyed Jimmy’s show at the Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale, FL Saturday afternoon. Hope he comes back soon!
has the show in Wheeling WV been canceled? looking forward to having you back in Paden City WV on Labor Day
Jimmy will not be in Wheeling this year.
Thoroughly enjoyed Jimmy at Mining Camp restaurant yesterday. What a cool intimate venue. Great to be able to meet Jimmy after the show and get a picture. I did forget to mention to him how much I appreciated his Christian witness. Very powerful.
Thanks so much.
[…] For more tour info, visit jimmyfortune.com. […]
We saw Jimmy perform last week at the Mining Camp Restaurant in Apache Junction, AZ. He mentioned that there was an Alaskan cruise coming up later this year. I do not see it on your webste. How do I get more Information?
It will be in July of 2016 but information will not be released until the fall of this year.
Link to Crossville won’t let you buy tickets. Calendar doesn’t show Jimmy being there.
Tickets go on sale May 2, 2015.
To Jamie Thom in New England (1/26/15)- As Nina mentioned there is a show in October 2015 at the Praise Center in York, PA. This is just 25 miles from Lancaster PA where Jimmy appeared in 2014. There was a large crowd there and we had fans come in from different states including Maine and Massachusetts.
The Praise center is a nice venue as there are large round tables in the front near the stage and then behind then there are long tables. A meal is included with the ticket price. Ronda Vincent is on the program too. We have been to see several shows there including Dailey and Vincent and enjoyed them.
Is there anything scheduled in the Buffalo New York area?
I think the closest show scheduled so far is York, PA in Oct.
Saw you tonight at the concert in Pace. Awesome performance. Thank you so much. I was totally blessed.
I was the producer at Jimmy’s show in Pace, Fl on 3-20-2015. One guy told me that Jimmy was so powerful while singing I Believe that he could feel God’s presence around him. He said it was so strong that if had been his time to go that would have okay with him. He said while listening to Jimmy he was so relaxed and filled with contentment. Jimmy stolen the show folks. If you have never seen him in concert, that should move to the top of your list of things to do. Jimmy we love you.
Is there any thing scheduled for the Chattanooga, TN area?
There isn’t anything on the schedule close yet.
Yet another great show. The show in Nelson County was awesome. So nice to hear Jimmy introduce his family to the crowd. I hope you can schedule these shows every year from now as as the radio host suggested. I know we will be there. Loved meeting some of Jimmy’s teachers before the show. We did not want to take Jimmy’s and Nina’s time up after the show and let that time for close friends and family but we will catch up with you at the Praise Center in York, PA this fall if not before. God Bless the two of you and your extended families.
Just bought tickets for the show in York, PA on 10/24. Can’t wait! Taking my 71 year old mother for her birthday. She loves to hear Jimmy on country Family Reunion. She will be so surprised to hear him in person!
We are trying to purchase tickets for Jimmy’s show in Branson at the Starlight Theater on May 8th, but the website isn’t giving an option for that date. Are tickets available? We have a party of six. (I am Max’s sister) 🙂 Thank you.
I looked and it let me select tickets for that day. If you can’t get it to work I would call the theatre at 417-337-9333. Hope to see you there!!
Jimmy is returning to Lancaster PA on July 26 at AMT Theatre. The website is now showing the date. AMT Theatre has a Member Only sale date of 4/21 and then they will open it to the public on 4/25/15 @ 9:00AM. The website allows you to see the theatre seating to pick your seats.
Also, if you’re close to the Lancaster/York PA area or will be travelling back through the area, Jimmy will be in York, PA on October 24,2015. Lancaster and York are only 25 miles apart.
Is Jimmy going to be performing in Louisa, VA this year. We enjoyed seeing him last year (you got him to sing You and Your Sweet Love per my request).
We have not talked with them about coming back this year. Maybe 2016!!
Well at least we will see him in November at the Yellow Barn if not before
Great show in Celina, Ohio. Hope he’s coming back next year!
Hey Jimmy and Nina,I was traveling with the brothers and Jimmy for 4 years,up to the final night of the Statler’s final concert.Thats been a while back.I’m glad to see that you guys are still working.I live in Springfield,Mo still,and I see that you guys are in my neck of the woods from time to time.I plan on getting to one of the concerts sometime soon.I just thought I would say hello and I am looking forward to seeing ya’ll.
Would love to see you sometime!!
My husband and I just saw Jimmy last nite in Shipshewana, IN. I do believe that Jimmy has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. It really touches me. Blessings to you and Jimmy.
Saw Jimmy perform as part of the “Country Gold” show in Shipshewana IN the other night. It was a wonderful show.
Would love to see Jimmy come back to do a solo show or do a show with Dailey and Vincent in Shipshewana!
We also saw the Country Gold Show in Shipshewana and were so moved by Jimmy’s performance. Could have listened to him all night! Hope to see him perform again.
I really hope you guys are working on another show in Lovingstonn VA next year. The one this year was great and it was such a nice get away for us to come down and see you all.
I miss seeing the Statler Brothers on T.V. I love to watch Jimmy smile when he is getting ready to hit one of those high notes. I see where he is coming to Steelville, Mo August 1st. I am in charge of my Senior Adult group at my church and I try to plan trips and I am trying to get a group together so we can come and see him. Hope to see him there I have several tapes from the Statler’s and there gospel music. I went to Colorado last week and took their tapes with me and listen to them on the way home. Ida
Thanks for writing and we hope to see you in Steelville!
Will Jimmy be anywhere in Virginia besides Radford and The Yellow Barn this year
Jimmy was in Monticello, Arkansas tonight and I went to see his show. He was absolutely fabulous. He’s always been a favorite of mine and now, I’m really “hooked” on his music. I loved the fact that he seemed to enjoy singing for all of us. He fit right in with our crowd. I thought I would lose my breath when he sang “Elizabeth”. I really enjoyed hearing about how he grew up. I’m glad we still have people like Jimmy spreading the Gospel about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
when will jimmy be in oklahoma
We don’t have anything on the schedule yet, maybe next year!
Will Jimmy be coming anywhere in Minnesota or Wisconsin in the near future? We so want to see him in concert but he is never close enough to us. We would love to attend one or more of his concerts. The closest we have come has been listening over and over to all of his CD’s. We have been fans for so many years of Jimmy’s, ever since he joined The Statlers. Much appreciation for all of his talents. Love to you both, Patty.
Hopefully we will be coming up there in 2016.
I sure hope so Nina. It has been so long since we have seen Jimmy with The Statlers. We so want to see him on his own. Your husband is remarkable and has the most beautiful voice and is truly the kindest, sweetest man. You are a very lucky woman to have such a wonderful husband with such immense talent. Looking forward to hopefully seeing you next year!
I am 78 and have fallen madlyin love with the voice of Jimmy. I live in London, OH and want to see him in this area – Columbus, Springfield or near.
I hope we are able to get to your area soon. We were just in Celina, OH in April. Maybe we will be there again next year.
Hello and hope all are doing well.Just wondering if Jimmy will
be in Clifford Va in Dec .We really enjoy his shows.Hope to see you there.Love in Christ!!
Yes, we will be there again on 12-11-15. Hope to see you there!
I have been following the Statler Brothers since I was newly married in 1971. We traveled all over the state of IL to see them, and a few times saw them in MO and IN. I am glad I have Lew’s autograph. So sorry he passed, but we love Jimmy! He was at the Effingham Performance Center in Effingham, IL nearly 10 yrs ago. My daughter & son in law were eating at Cracker Barrell in Mt. Vernon, IL the evening before and sat by him. She told him he looked alot like Jimmy Fortune. In a few minutes he gave her autographed guitar pics and invited her to the concert the next evening. She was so surprised to be eating right by him. He is so precious and we know he loves God – that means alot!
Love Jimmy’s voice! One of my all time favorites is Be With Me
but a few of the words are not clear. Is it possible to get the lyrics?
I forgot to mention that MY ONLY LOVE was sang at my daughter’s wedding. Sure been awesome for Jimmy to be there and sing it! By the way, I live in Kinmundy, Illinois – population 800!
You need to look up a place in Winchester, OH. It is on line. Be the perfect place for you to play. Good venue with great sound. Please see about poreforming there in 2016.
Red Barn Convention Center
They have a lot of concerts that are greatly attended. Seating is great and they also have a meal if you want it. Some people who have or are playing there: John Conley, John Thomas Conley, Mo Bandy, Restless Heart, and the Van-Dells, plus many more.
We would love to come see you there!!! The owners have fashioned the center after the Red Barn in Renfro Valley.
Jimmy, we saw you in Abilene, TX this past spring. When are you comoing back this way? We live in Wichita Falls, TX. You are our favorite singer!
Not sure when Jimmy will be back in Abilene but he has a show in New Boston coming soon. Not sure how long this is from where you live.
HI! I see you have a show in Branson on Oct 26-27th. Is that a BootDaddy concert? We went to Branson to see Jimmy in 2012 and he just blew us away! What an amazing talent…and such a nice man! We loved him so much that the following June we drove to Pigeon Forge to see him! Have also been to Hutchinson, KS and Louisburg, KS to see his shows. Will hopefully be able to get to Branson for our 50th anniversary in Oct…would love it if he could do You and Your Sweet Love…:) I keep playing the youtube video of that…EVERY day!
It is a Boot Daddy concert. We sure do hope to see you there!! If you can email firstname.lastname@example.org about a week before the show to let me know you will be there and that you want that song I will get it on the set list.
Jimmy, I saw you in Sun City, AZ and truly loved your show. You and my late husband could have been brothers…..after the show I asked to stand beside you to see if you matched my husband’s height and did…what a thrill! I hope your busy tour schedule will bring you to the Sun City, AZ area again soon.
God Bless you and your family.
Shirley Temple, Surprise, AZ
I know we will be in Apache Junction next March. That may be the closest we get to Sun City in the near future.
One of the best concerts we have EVER been to was the Dublin VA show last year with Dailey and Vincent. The Holy Spirit was moving through that place like I haven’t felt in a long time. Is there any plan to do another show like that with Dailey and Vincent anytime soon?
They do a few bluegrass festivals from time to time and there is a full quartet show planned in May of next year in North Wilkesboro, NC.
I was just pulling up the YouTube music video “My Only Love” for me my husband to commemorate our 30th wedding anniversary tomorrow, August 17th. “My Only Love” was sung at our wedding by friends, making our day most special, & through the years on our anniversaries we have often wondered what it might have been like to see Jimmy Fortune actually perform it in person….so you can only imagine our surprise to find that Jimmy Fortune is performing on our actual anniversary tomorrow August 17th at 3:30pm at the Lewisburg WV State Fair!!! However, that is less than 20 hrs away, & we live in Oneonta AL!!! Where there is a will, there is always a way…..maybe we’ll see you there! (& if not , we’ll be there in our hearts!) May God continue to bless you & your’s! Chuck & Karen Lacks
Jimmy will be in Rainsville, AL the last Saturday of this month. That should be a little closer to you.
We have our tickets & look forward to seeing you at Music On The Mountain at Rainsville . May I request that “My Only Love ” be sung ?
Do you know when the tickets for the Nelson County High School concert scheduled for March 19, 2016 will go on sale. We really enjoyed the last show at Nelson and look forward to this one!
I’m not sure but they are supposed to send me a ticket link to put on the website when they get that ready.
They sent me a link yesterday. https://www.ticketriver.com/event/16642
Thank you. I ordered tickets but have not received a confirmation email yet.
Nina, Just saw the upcoming release date on “Hits & Hymns”. The song list looks super. Can’t wait to hear it and see the DVD with Bill Gaither. …………….Eddie
We sure are hoping you’ll be returning to the Historic Mining Camp Restaurant again this winter/spring. Haven’t seen it posted yet. Fingers crossed with a prayer or two. If so, we’ll be bringing a bunch of people again!
We do have plans on going back next year so keep looking at the tour dates.
Nina, my wife and I were grateful to see Jimmy perform in Franklin, KY last Fall and were thoroughly blown away. I have never heard better harmony than with Jimmy and Sydni Perry. We are from Columbia, SC and would love to have him do a show nearby.
Jimmy is performing at a private event there. Email me at email@example.com
My kids and I REALLY enjoyed the show at Mt Pleasant Thursday, Nina! It was great to see and talk to you both afterwards! Thank you so much for taking the time to spend with us. I don’t think you have an idea what that means to a fan of ‘The Brothers’ for almost 40 years, and a group of kids that have loved Jimmy their whole lives. We do have our tickets for Oelwein on the 12th, so we will see you there again!….and my wife can actually make it this time!! LOL
Safe travels! Take care and God bless!
We are so glad you are coming this weekend!!
I’m a big fan, and the son of another big fan, Pastor Bob Campbell. I hope to see the show in Amherst, Virginia.
So good to hear from you!!!!
Received tickets for the Amherst show today. My parents have fond memories of you from when my father was pastor of Ridgecrest Baptist Church. Dad has passed into Heaven, but Mom is well and will be at the show with me. She is really looking forward to it.
Grace and peace to you both,
So happy to see you have booked Lovingston, VA again for 2016. That will be right after our 35th Anniversary which is on the 14th of March. We will be making the trek down from Pennsylvania for sure as last year was an amazing time. We will see you and Jimmy in York, Pa this October too. GREAT NEWS about Lovingston.
My wife and me love to hear jimmy,
we are going to try and go to branson oct 26 and 27th
would love to see you guys in oklahoma
We hope to see you in Branson!! Don’t get out to Oklahoma much.
how do we get a autographed picture of jimmy
William – you can get a picture or CDs/DVDs if you go to the Branson show from Nina. If you want them right away, click on the “Shop” link on this website – it will have what you are looking for. Just page up on here for the link.
Nina, is there anytime next year when Jimmy will be close to Rockford, I’ll. I have been a fan since the Statlers started and even more when they brought Jimmy on board. He does a great job. Thanks and God Bless!
Not that I know of right now. Please keep checking the schedule though!!
We saw him in Renfro Valley Ky my wife and i love his singing when is he coming back to Renfro Valley Ky tell Jimmy we will be going to Dollywood to see him on tthe 10th 30 tell him to say hi to me and my wife greatlr appreciate it
Jimmy was awesome in Renfro Valley last Friday. I was traveling with a friend who was not familiar with his music, but is now a fan. While I watched almost every Statler Brothers TV show, this was my first time to see Jimmy live. I had no idea that one guitar could produce so much beautiful sound. I was especially awed the way he gave two young upcoming stars a venue, even playing backup guitar on their duet. He is quite a man.
Jimmy was awesome as expected in Greensburg. My 22 year old granddaughter loved the show, at least his portion.
I guess Country Music Hall of Fame as a solo act is next.
Do you have Square whipped back in shape. 666
I remember you by your card code!! lol THanks for coming to the show and yes, Square is all good now.
what a wonderful show in Greensburg,Pa. Oct 4th, after the show, we got to meet Jimmy, he signed his new cd for me and had his picture taken with me.what a wonderful couple you two are. also thank you for the prayers for our nephew Christian, 11 yrs. old who had open heart surgery Oct 5th. Surgery went well and he came home yesterday the 8th. thank you for all the music. Love ,mary
Our granddaughter gave us tickets to see Jimmy Fortune and Norman Blake at the Northeast Alabama Community College in Rainsville, AL. To say we enjoyed it is an understatement. All of our children and grandchildren have been raised on “Statler” music. All still talking about the show and how we enjoyed hearing Jimmy tell what prompted him to write the meaningful songs he sings.
This is the main reason I am writing such a long comment. My granddaughter has a venue called “Meeks Grain and Gin” on face book and website. She has made the old family gin into a great gathering place in the small town of Pisgah, AL. Last year she planned a Fall Festival to raise money for a lady (wife and mother of 3 small children) with breast cancer. We raised $5000 to help her with medical expenses. After much thought, she is using this years festival to help Local Community Food Banks and Snack Packs for Kids that need food to get them through the weekends. As she started planning this, it was put on my heart to suggest that she feature the needs of Veterans for 2016. She looked surprised and said, I had thought of doing something in my grandfather’s memory. Eugene Mitchell is one of the many names upon The Wall. I felt the Lord led me to ask if it might become a reality for Jimmy to perform at the 3rd Festival on October 22, 2016. How much would it cost? What would we need to do? Would we need to sell tickets to his portion of the program? It is a free event with donations making much of this possible. This years event is October 17, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The turn out last year was amazing and all the vendors spots have been filled and more still asking to come. Please let me know if you think this might be possible. The Gin is about 2 or 2 1/2 hour drive from Nashville. It was such a pleasure to meet all of you and the two talented back ups. At last my list was complete with autographs…I had the Statlers from their last concert in Chattanooga before Lew had to leave. Now I have Jimmy’s!
Thank you for your time and consideration. If you would like to contact my grand daughter, her name is Whitney Meeks, cell number is 256-605-9004. My name is Gwen Maxwell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for thinking of Jimmy. He is already booked that weekend in Pigeon Forge, TN. For further bookings you should contact Jimmy’s booking agent that is listed on the contact section of the website. Thanks!!
Were the red, white, and blue microphones Dailey and Vicent used on their show when Jimmy appeared the actual Statler Bothers microphones or ones made to look like them?
I just looked at your schedule and you are coming to the Mining Camp Restaurant in Apache Junction, AZ. This is great news. We have taken several groups of people to see you the last two times you were here. We have two couples that really love your music and I know they would love to come. They loved the Statlers and enjoyed your music when you to over from Lew. It will be go good to see you again. I can listen to your music and peace just fills my heart. God chose the right person to include you in with the Statlers and it flows both ways. We feel your music when you sing. If I can afford the tickets, I want to bring them to see you. They love your music almost as much as I do! I got laid off from my job last week but I am going to pray about this and if it’s meant to be there, I certainly will be there. We pray for you and Nina on the road so much. I am glad she travels with you. Your testimony blesses everyone in the crowd. I am so glad I am a child of God. I don’t know how people cope with their problems if God is not foremost in their heart. Thank you so much for coming out our way.
We love you both.
Len and June Sunde

will jimmy be signing autographs in branson this Monday and tuesday
Yes he will!! Hope to see you there!
We got to meet you at the bluegrass festival in Summersville WV. It was total awesome. Getting to talk with you was great and hoping to see you there again soon. God Bless you and your family.
Another great show by Jimmy in York, PA on October 24th. As I told him that night, his voice just seems to get better and better. I am sure he knows by the ovations he gets that the people in our area really love him and his music. Cannot wait till we see him again. We are coming down to Lovingston in March and then we will be at his show in York, PA in December of 2016. Wish we could see him more but we try as much as we can. Glad to see he will be doing a Christmas show in York as we really miss seeing him in OC.
Hi nina, great show in branson, i was the guy who asked you about the mugs, you said you would check and see what you have
We will be in Branson for the Larry’s Country Diner Show
featuring Jimmy on May 3, 2016. We saw Jimmy perform “If” on the Love Song special. His rendition is the most moving that we have heard. It brought tears to our eyes. Is there a chance that Jimmy could perform this song at the May 3 show? Peace and love to you both.
My husband & I drove from Ft Worth to see Jimmy last night in New Boston. We were again in awe of his performance and so pleased we got to see him in person. There is no one else out there with his unique , beautiful voice and the 2 young musicians with him last night were also awesome. God bless Jimmy and his family while he travels this wonderful & blessed country. Jimmy’s music & words are healthy,loving reminders of just how blessed we are to be Americans. Thank you Fortune family for sharing the gift that God has given Jimmy. Oh, and that book you might write someday….CAN’T
Hi, my husband and I first saw jimmy at the Ryland Theatre for our 35 anniversary! What a treat! Have been looking to see if he will be performing on a cruise in 2016. I would love to celebrate my 70th birthday on a cruise with Jimmy.
I just wanted to post a comment for all of Jimmy’s fan to share my experience. I moved in across the street from Jimmy and Nina about 7 years ago. He was one of the first neighbors I met when I moved in. Jimmy is the real deal!! The phrase, What you see is what you get couldn’t be more true. We have become great friends and he is one of the few people in this world I could count on if I really needed something. I’m so proud to know him and to see his music taking off like it is. There is not a more deserving person in music. God bless.
Thanks Brad but you’re the one that’s the great neighbor. There anytime we need you!!
Just got my tickets to the December 3, 2016 show in York, PA. So excited to be in the first row of tables for this. It will be like the old days when you used to be at the OC Jamboree that time of year. Cannot wait but we will see you in Lovingston (3/19)before that. That weekend we will be celebrating out 35 anniversary with you as we were married on 3/14. As always love to see you both.
Come to Omaha,NE some time. It’s not that bad. We’re in the center of the country and people will come from everywhere.
Does Jimmy have any concert dates in 2016 in Alabama, South Georgia, or the Florida Panhandle?
I do know he has shows in Breman, GA and Weirsdale, FL next year.
I have been a fan of the Statler Brothers since they first began. Even though Jimmy became a member later, he fit so well and his voice and music contributions was awesome. I served in the U.S. Marines and went to Vietnam so the song “More Than a Name on the Wall” really hit home for me. I hope Jimmy understands how much that song has meant to so many of us. I hope someday to be able to see him in concert, I enjoyed the concerts performed by the Statler Brothers. I work around Indianapolis, IN. so maybe he will be in this area sometime. I want to get his new album “Hits and Hymns” (I hope that is correct), I saw the program with Mr. Gaither and Jimmy and loved the music. Thanks Jimmy, God Bless
We saw you folks in the Tri-cities in Washington State.
It was funny, moving, and…. emotional.
As it was the first time my brother and I along
with my husband went forward to be thanked for serving
our Country. My brother had never stepped forward.
My husband and I are 100% disabled, my brother and one
Other will never be the same.
Thank you for recognizing every person whose ever served.
We also remember those who gave the greatest sacrifice,
their lives, and families who serve too.
We won’t forget being at that event, for many reasons.
God Bless All who love Him, and protect the innocents in
this world. Thanks to those who willingly give up their
lives to serve.
Wish you’d make another trip to the Tri-City WA area.
But, glad you did.
Bless your precious hearts!
Thank you for your service!! And I hope we are able to make it back to your area soon.
My mother is looking forward to seeing you in Amherst. She remembers you fondly from when my father was pastor of Ridgecrest Baptist Church. It will be a real treat for her to see you again.
when will you guys be back in branson we loved his show
I have tickets to Jimmy’s concert at the Praise Center in York PA for next December but do not see it on the schedule yet. Just wondering?
Sooo very excited & happy to know Jimmy is coming to Federalsburg, MD in November 2016 and Rhonda Vincent coming back for 16th time! Have wanted attend one of Jimmy’s concerts for long time and really looking forward to this one. Would buy tickets today if they were available!! Welcome to the Eastern Shore of Maryland!!
Will Jimmy be in Oregon or Washington at a later date?
We have some in AZ and CA in March but right now we don’t have plans on getting up there. We absolutely love it there though!
Love his music and would love to see one of his shows. Hope we can make the Arizona show in March as the California show is a private one.
Do you know if Sydni Perry will be with Jimmy at Florida state fair or the Dailey and Vincent Landfest Big fans of both. Thanks
Sydni will be on the Carrie Underwood tour until mid summer so she will not be with Jimmy in Feb. As for the Landfest, it depends on her schedule with Carrie.
Thanks for the quick reply. Twist her arm to be at Landfest their voices together are fantastic.
Any chance Jimmy will play in Oklahoma in 2016, would love to hear Elizabeth live, Robert, Tulsa
Not sure, I know he will probably be in Texas and Kansas again.
Thanks for your reply, we will have to travel to Tx or Kansas to see him, my favorite group The Beach Boys whom we are lucky enough to still see in concert, to me are the greatest singers in rock and roll, but I don’t think I have ever heard a voice like Jimmy’s, looking forward to seeing him someday!
Would love it if you got somewhere close to Iowa.
Just got tickets ordered for June 4,at NewHolland PA. We really need a “Jimmy fix”.
We will be there too!!! Hope to see you Riley and Maggie!
Wondering if Jimmy might consider coming back to Southern Ontario, Canada to play in 2016. Just bought his Hits and Hymns on CD and DVD at my local Bible Bookstore and enjoyed it immensely. Have all his other CD’s as well. Thanks and wishing you continued success. God Bless.
I would like Jimmy to do a concert in Conway for 250 anniversary of my town. Who do I call to get information on these? Also I’m looking forward to see you Nina on the Dailey and Vincent. Can’t wait see you guys again.
If you click on “contact” on the website you will see one for Gladys Van Dyke for booking.
Does Jimmy have any plans to come to Columbia, SC anytime in 2016?
Not yet but we will still book a lot of shows for 2016.
Any chance of any tours in United Kingdom
We don’t have any plans at the moment.
We love to hear jimmy sing. We got tickets to his Nelson county high school show. Please asked him to sing how great thou art. Thanks for letting me know where to get tickets. Gloria fulcher
I would like information about the show in Monticello, AR I don>t see it on the scheduld
Jimmy played there last June. He isn’t playing there this year.
Are you still doing the show on December 3 2016 at the Praise Center in York Pa.? Hope to see you there.
Yes, will get this up on the schedule soon, along with some other shows.
I am glad it got on I had purchased my tickets months ago and asked the same question as to why it was not on the schedule
Is Jimmy playing in Louisa, Va this year
I had the opportunity to see Jimmy in Phoenix, AZ on the 11th which was his birthday. We had a fabulous time. Before the show started, he indulged myself, my brother, and my two sons to sing a rendition of Happy Birthday which was totally awesome. Thank you Jimmy for sharing your talent. I look forward to our meeting again. God Bless you.
Listening to my iPod and heard a John Denver song right after a Jimmy Fortune song. They are both in my all time favorite top 10 singers and I was wondering if I might be so bold as to suggest maybe one of those duets like Hank Jr. did with a recording of Hank Sr.?
Are there any plans for Jimmy to come to the West Virginia State Fair this year ?
We are working on that, it’s a possibility.
Thank You! I really hope he does, would really like to see him at WV state Fair
The contract just came back for 8-16-16.
I am really disappointed not to see any Texas dates. I missed out seeing The Statler Brothers and any of their shows and now I feel left out not seeing Jimmy. Please do some central Texas tours. Thanks
He was in Midland and Abilene in January. Hopefully we will be out your way soon.
Just wanted to let you know I got the cd I wanted. It is great. I would like one of these days to see you in concert but I am taking care of my mother in law and I just lost my husband to cancer Feb 2 2016. He was only 64. That is young.
me and my wife went to show at NCHS on the 19th, jimmy did a fantastic job as always,his music and singing really touched us, we bought a hits and hymn cd and and he autographed it for my wife, i just love the I Believe song, the students performance at the beginning of the show was great, also the musicians,and the woman singer was great , thank all of you, and the school for such a wonderful unforgetable night.
I’d love to see you in concert. I’m from Sheboygan Wisconsin
We will be in Prairie du Sac on 4-30-16. Probably the closest we will be for a while.
I was at the April 3 rd show in Elkins WV. It was a GREAT show
I tried to get my CD autographed during intermission, but I blocked for you to
Go back stage for a break before your second half.
Maybe when your in this area i.e. Charleston I will come and get it signed.
It was a GREAT SHOW
You should hire a guard to protect you from all the blue hair ladies . Lol
Jimmy stayed and signed CDs for more than an hour after the show. Bring it next time and he’ll sign it for you. Thanks for coming!!
We al ready bought our tickets for branson 10/24/16 and 10/25/16
But I don’t see it on the schedule
Will he be singing “The Far Side Banks of Jordan” on the May 3ed show in Branson,we are driving from Housto to see him sing (that song)love that cd. Thanks
For 8/16/2016 you have 2 shows in two different locations.
The closest city that I live near is in between Jacksonville and St Augustine Florida, the only fair that I am some what close to is Jacksonville and St Augustine Florida areas. Will Jimmy be arriving at either one of these cities?
Jimmy will be in Weirsdale, Fl this coming Saturday, April 16th. That will be the closest show in a while. Here is the link to get tickets http://www.obopry.com/
Jimmy put on an awesome show today at The Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale, FL. I still tear up when he sings Elizabeth and My Only Love. It’s been so long since we’ve seen him. Last time was in Buena Vista, VA at the Nothin Fancy Festival and my hubby felt so special cause Jimmy sang a song just for him while he was practicing, it was the Harrisonburg commercial “come on down and get yourself a car”. Hope he comes back next year we will definitely see him again.
This may sound like a silly question but my wife and I are going to the June 4 event at Yoder’s in New Holland Pa and since this is our first ever we were wondering what is appropriate dress as this is a dinner event. Thanks in advance.
You would probably wear whatever you would wear if you were seeing Jimmy in a theater, casual.
My brother and I will also be going to the New Holland PA show at Yoder’s restaurant. As Nina said, dress is casual. If you look at the seating diagram, the tables use face to face seating that hold 26 seats per table. I gather the table set-up is used for dinner and show as the tables are positioned in front of the stage.
Yes, Eddie, you are right about the tables. Bob and I will be at Yoder’s too. Hope to get to see you!! We have been there a couple times for the Daily & Vincent show. Look forward to seeing Jimmy and, hopefully, Nina too!!
Hey Dot & Bob,
Looking forward to seeing you both again. My brother, Jim, will be joining me. This is our first time at Yoder’s. We’ll be at Table 8.
Just saw Jimmy in Weirsdale fl , we are avid fans and love all his music . He took his time with us , had a pic taken , he is absolutely wonderful and his songs have true inspirational meanings , hoping to see him again when we visit PA . Thank you Jimmy for such a wonderful concert. Pam and Art
Hi Nina and Jimmy!
Pat and Madge Healy from Stafford, Virginia saying hello! 🙂
We sure miss you both and we hope to make a concert of Jimmy’s real soon now!
Pat is off from teaching college this summer, so perhaps we’ll be able to do so! We’re hoping!
We’ll be saying prayers for you both in your many travels! Please say hi to Billy James for us! Big hug to you and to Jimmy and we love you both so much!
And for anyone who hasn’t ever heard Jimmy sing before, you’re missing the BEST tenor singer EVER!
And his talent and ability for songwriting is absolutely amazing!
You won’t be disappointed! Get to a concert of his and you’ll become a fan of his singing instantly like so many others of us!
We love you, Jimmy! Hugs!
My wife and myself got to see Jimmy perform at the Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale FL. Thank you Jimmy and Nina for coming to Florida. We thoroughly enjoyed the show and we’re very pleased to meet the both of you. What a great venue to showcase your talent! And we appreciate you bringing Darin and Brooke Aldridge with you along with John Meyer! We are so blessed with your performance and you take the time to showcase such great up and coming talent! God Bless and we hope to see you again next year. Jeff and Jody.
Thank you so much!!
Does jimmy ever come to Mississippi
Not often. We do shows where people contact us.
My wife and I saw your show in Prairie du Sac last Saturday. Just wanted to give you a big thank you for sharing your talents and your witness for the Lord. You did a wonderful job and we pray for continued success and blessings in your lives. Great to see you both and again, thank you!
Darrin and Vicki
You can catch Jimmy on Opry Country Classics on WSM Online on May 5th, Thursday,7PM CST (8PM EST).
Eddie, Hope to see you at Yoder’s on June 4th!!
Dot & Bob
See my post above about the Yoder’s concert.
Dot, I just saw your earlier note to Riley & Maggie. FYI, Riley & Maggie had to change their plans after buying their tickets. They were kind enough to offer their tickets to me.
Nina, thank you so much for asking for”The far side Banks of Jodan” to be added to the play list, in Branson, meant more than I can say. Much success to both of you.Thanks again.
Jimmy will be on http://www.digitalrodeo.tv on Thursday, June 9th, at 3 PM (CDT).
My wife and I were able to see Jimmy with Dailey and Vincent in Wilkes NC May 21st and it was a great concert. The songs that Jimmy writes are so inspirational. Nina hopefully you and Jimmy can come back soon.
We would love to!!!
Saw Jimmy’s New Holland PA show on 6/4/16. He had Darin and Brooke Aldredge on back-up vocals and playing guitar and mandolins. I’ve seen a lot of Jimmy shows – but he took it to new heights with a 2 hour performance. Check the tour schedule above and go see him – super performance and best show I’ve seen.
Traveled from Long Island to see the New Holland, Pa. show on June 4. Great show. Wish he could make it to Long Island. I am planning on going to the York, Pa. show.
Nina, thanks you and Jimmy for putting up with my girls at the George Jones Museum Friday. (Sarah and Erin) Tell Jimmy Erin came home on cloud nine. She’s telling everyone how Jimmy dedicated “Elizabeth” to her. How great is it to touch the young generation like that? That’s when you know you’re the real deal Jimmy Fortune. God speed ahead. (Mike and John were great too!) P.S. Bringing some fans to Denton. Looking forward to it.
I have to say this as I come back on. I do not know Jimmy Fortune so this is not an advertisement. H has to be one of the most puriest singers. If you watch him with the Statlers and go to You T:ube Great Pretender the statlers brothers the quality of his voice is second to no other. I mean that.
is there any plans to get to seattle or a close city to that,,,we are sure you have a ton of fans who would love to see and here jimmy in concert!!!!
Afraid not. We will be in Seattle visiting next month for a few days because we love it there so much.
We need to see you here
Is Jimmy going to be in York, Pa. in December? TPC Banquet Center is not showing that date.
The TPC date is correct (12-3-16). Try to Google “TPC (The Praise Center)and select the link for “Michaels Productions” for Jimmy’s appearance with Jeannie Seely. The link shows the 2016 shows which includes Jimmy’s.
Hi Nina, I am from New Bedford,MA . We saw Jimmy at a church in Raynham, MA a few years back. My wife is a big Statler Brothers fan, me myself am a Beatlemaniac, no offense Jimmy lol. I am also a local musician as well. Anyway, please tell Jimmy that Jeanie Alabama says hello and hopes that you guys will get up this way again one day!!! By the way, though I am a Beatlemaniac I did enjoy Jimmys performance up here in Raynham, MA. Also, please tell Jimmy that i enjoy his music and my personal favorite is More Than A Name On A Wall. Beautiful song, wish I had wrote it lol
Thank you, I’ll tell him. Maybe we can come up that way again soon!
Saw Jimmy last night at Stages Theatre in Hopkins Mn. It was such a wonderful concert. We have loved his music for years, so to see him in person singing and later meeting him was Awesome!
Hi Nina I am what you would call a blast from the past. Let Jimmy know I am very happy he stayed out there and kept on making music. When the Statlers retired I would have been happy to stay on the road with him as I always thought he was a special kind of artist. That night in Salem was a bitter sweet event for me.Tell him Woody says high and stay out there and never stop.
Hi Nina. I’m Georgette Couvall and I’m one of Dr. Kenneth E. Salyer’s (http://www.worldcf.org) patients. I met Jimmy at the River Arts Center in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin on Saturday, April 30, 2016 for the World Craniofacial Foundation 2016 Jimmy Fortune Benefit Concert.
Will he be coming back to Wisconsin again? Or Illinois?
We are planning on coming back to do the same show late next year.
Hi Nina! It’s nice to hear from you again! Thank you so much for getting back to me so soon!
Do you know the date of this show for next year? Also, is it for the World Craniofacial Foundation (http://www.worldcf.org) again?
Same place? Two shows? Same times?
If you can let me know, that would be great!
Again, thank you so much!
We spoke by phone
Any chance of Jimmy coming back to Wisconsin?
Caught him in Prairie during sacrifice and it was phenomenal!
I talked to Jimmy in New Holland PA. Could you do cheaper cruise? Also could you guys come to New England. I love to hear and see Jimmy sing. In New Holland it was great to see him have so much fun singing. I miss seeing you too.
The Alaskan one is always a little higher and the one we are doing in January of next year is already sold out. Not sure which one will do in 2018 yet.
I really enjoyed seeing Jimmy play at the WV state fair for the past 2 years. Hoping to see him there again next year. I think he shoud be on main stage! I also enjoy the musicians he brings with him. Great of him to showcase other talented musicians Love the singer that he had with him singing the high harmonies! Hope it is ok if i share some pictures that i took at his show on Facebook to let people know that if they see he is going to be playing in their area they ought to go see him!
Several of my family and Is enjoyed Jimmy’s show at the WV State fair last year and again this year.Sure hope he comes back next year.Not only is he a fantastic singer ,but I love that he shows that God is such a great part of his life.I also love his super kindness to all his fans.
Saw the show last night in our little town of Paden City, WV. As usual it was just electrifying. Once again, I have heard so many good things about the show. This was the 3rd year in a row that Jimmy appeared at our little Labor Day Celebration. Wish “youins” could be here every year as the main entertainment. The young couple that was singing backup and playing instruments were also fantastic. Thanks for putting on a fabulous show once again. The Veterans salute is wonderful. Someday, I shall listen to “The Wall” and not be sobbing through it. I lied, ’cause that will never happen.
Darin and Brooke Aldridge are the young couple that have done back up vocals for Jimmy. My brother and I saw them with Jimmy in New Holland, PA in June. We both agreed how great their harmonies were throughout the show with Jimmy. He also had them do a few songs of their own. If you google their names, you’ll see a photo of them with Jimmy.
Will Jimmy be doing another Alaska cruise?
We are planning for 2017
If you’re in Nashville, TN on 9/29/16, Jimmy will be appearing on the Opry Country Classics Show at the Ryman. The show is at 7PM CST. If you’re in another part of the country, the “Classics” shows are on WSM Online. The shows are broadcast live (7PM CST, 8PM EST,and you can check for the other time zones in case of time delays. If you’ve never listened to WSM, you will have to do a quick member sign-up (no cost), so you might want to get an early start on that.
Jimmy is an amazing singer and song writer, really enjoyed his show at Denton, NC this past Sat.night. When he sings “I Believe” I feel the joy of our Lord in my soul.
Any plans for Jimmy to do a quartet concert with Dailey & Vincent like the one in Wilkesboro, NC last spring?
We haven’t talked about so there aren’t any scheduled.
Last time I saw Jimmy was so wonderful. He was here in Nashville doing the midnight jamboree. I sat diagonal second row for a time because front and center seats said reserved. Well about 2 songs into the show, I realized no one was sitting there. I had just gotten my new Jimmy shirt and wearing my custom made Statler jacket, and I decided I was moving to the from row, because you could tell who the true Fortune fanatic was in this audience. I got up and in my attempt to be inconspicuous, I dropped everything I was carrying and tripped and fell on the way to the front row. Well, the show was awesome as always, and I said hi to Jimmy after the show, It was so awesome that he remembered me from last time. I guess it was because, the exact same thing happed to me when I met Jimmy at the country music hall of fame, where Jimmy said he would from then on be referred to as Jimmy the hall of fame and fortune, and of course rightfully so. Jimmy is such a special guy and he means the world to me. It means everything to me that he carries on the Statler legacy still. Jimmy is da man!
Thank you for supporting his solo career. We couldn’t do it without you!
I saw Jimmy at a show he did for a veterans organization last November in Columbia SC. What a fantastic show that was and as a bonus, I got to spend some time with him over a two day period. I’ll never forget that wonderful experience. I already have tickets for his upcoming show January 15 in Newberry, SC. Several people I know in Columbia are driving up for it. Can’t wait!
Will Jimmy be coming back to Scottsburg IN in 2017?
Yes, the last weekend of May.
I will be attending the 2:00 show on New Year’s Eve at shipshewana in. Could jimmy please Sing “I Believe”? It is a wonderful song!
Thanks for all the hard work and dedication
I saw Jimmy with Dailey and Vincent 2 years ago in Dublin, VA. It was one of the most enjoyable shows I have ever seen. When I saw Dailey and Vincent last year there, they said they were planning on doing shows with Jimmy again in 2017, including Dublin. I have checked the schedules and do not see Jimmy appearing with them at their scheduled appearance in April. Any chance this might still happen. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks.
We’ve not talked about coming back to Dublin with them yet.
I would support that too, loved that concert
When’s the last time Jimmy performed in New York City?
Any chance he’ll be here–or Long Island, Westchester, NJ, or CT? I know it’s expensive to come to NYC, but maybe on a multi-artist production?
We only do shows where venues contact us. They might not know about Jimmy up there.
Ireland loves Jimmy fortune 🙂
My mum and I are huge fans
Hurry back to Newberry. My husband and I nagged the Opera House folks to ask you to come. And I am so glad we did. Because you came! The concert was fantastic!
My wife and i was at the miners camp in Apache Junction,Arizona on Saturday night for his dinner show.He can still hit those notes we really enjoyed ourselves and can’t wait until next year to see him again.
I just learned of Jimmy a few months ago when a close friend introduced me to his song, “My Only Love”. I fell in love with his music and great voice. I checked his website and lo and behold he appeared at Happy Trails, in
Surprise, Arizona. I didn’t even like country music, I so enjoyed him and his different types. Hope he will back in
Arizona soon. He is truly an awesome performer and person.
Thank you!! And Jimmy is usually somewhere in Arizona at the beginning of each year.
Me and my wife just purchased our tickets for the upcoming orange blossom Opry show in June! Thanks for continuing to come back to this fantastic venue. Looking so forward to seeing another wonderful show!
Any plans to do another quartet concert with Dailey & Vincent. We have been to two of them – Greeneville TN & Wilkesboro NC. They were incredible shows!
They also did one in Dublin, VA and it was wonderful and yes I agree they need to do more of these showns
