    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.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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!

      • Ella Penney says:

        Would love to see him come to Newfoundland, as well. Been BIG fans for years

      • David says:

        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.

      • Robert Chambers says:

        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

        • Nina Fortune says:

          Pastor Bob – Jimmy has to leave early that morning to catch his flight. He is flying out of an airport in CA.

      • Pam Shapiro says:

        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?

        • Nina Fortune says:

          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.

      • Marlene says:

        Love you guys so much its was great seeing you a watching him sing with the others do you have that trip pictures of you all when you were leaving in front of the hotel we were all leaving together hope to see you again made my day

      • I’m not sure how to go about contacting you to discuss booking. We are looking at April 20 for 6th Annual Legacy of Love Festival and May 4 @ Shepherd Hill Opry.
        (205) 233-3794

    • Jacquelyn Meyer says:

      Nina, I have a question. What concerts will Jimmy be singing with Daily and Vincent? And, not just one or two songs – but, the whole concert. I am wondering if Jimmy is joining the Sept. 8th at Blue Gate Theatre in Indiana? It says it is a Country/Statler Tribute and it wouldn’t be great if Jimmny isn’t there? If he will be there – we want to get tickets ASAP. I will look for your reply.
      Thank you.

      • Nina Fortune says:

        Jimmy will not be at that show. We are talking about doing two in 2018, Dublin VA and Greeneville TN.

        • Jacquelyn Meyer says:

          Thank you. I hope so – love to hear them together. We’re in Iowa – but, have gone to Jimmy’s concerts as far away as Florida. I just noticed he will be in Iowa in June as part of Gold Show. So we will see him in June!

        • Robert Coleman says:

          That would be great, we loved coming down to the one in Dublin a couple years ago and have hoped it would happen again. Please keep us all informed. Thank you

        • Rosanne Penley says:

          Any idea when a decision will be made on these two shows? Dublin and Greeneville?

  2. Lori Carver says:

    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!

  3. Jamie Thom says:

    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)

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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.

  4. Janet Tillman says:

    When is the next possible visit to SD, ND, or MT?? Lorilynn is already asking? :+) Thank You.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      We don’t have anything on the schedule right now but we probably will by the end of the year.

      • Janet says:

        If Jimmy Fortune coming to the Dakotas in the near future? My niece, Lorilynn Konecny, is forever asking what is Jimmy’s schedule? I’m afraid it’s not too helpful this year. :+[

        • Nina Fortune says:

          We don’t have anything there on the calendar yet. I think Wisconsin is the closest show.

          • Joy says:

            Hi Nina,
            Will Jimmy have any shows in Northern Va, Loudoun or Fairfax County?

          • Nina Fortune says:

            Not yet but hopefully soon.

          • Kerri Ellis says:

            Hi Nina and Jimmy! We were at the show in Bremen GA! My whole life was made that night when Jimmy was kind enough to sing a chorus of “Elizabeth” with me. It was certainly a dream come true. We are planning on attending the show in Florida on March 3rd, 2018. I know as always, it will be wonderful. His spirituality is so obvious in his music and words. That’s something you don’t see or hear much of anymore. Can’t wait to see y’all again. God bless you both!

            Kerri Ellis

          • Nina Fortune says:

            That show is on 3-5-18, not the third. Look forward to seeing you there!!

        • Janet Tillman says:

          We’ll be seeing you in Parker in October. Fantastic!! Lorilynn is lit up like a Christmas tree. God Bless!

  5. Michael Winton says:

    Does Jimmy have any plans to come to Alabama?

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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.

      • Nicole says:

        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. 🙂

  6. kim ford says:

    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

  7. Christina Pennington says:

    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?

  8. Brad Carter says:

    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?

  9. Perry and Patsy Carlisle says:

    WV State Fair tickets are not available on the site?

  10. Joyce says:

    Is there a cruise set for 2016?

  11. Alice says:

    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!

  12. Alice says:

    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.

  13. 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

  14. Jackie says:

    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.

  15. Patricia Hartwick says:

    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!!!

  16. Jeanne says:

    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

  17. Kim Clark says:

    Enjoyed Jimmy’s show at the Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale, FL Saturday afternoon. Hope he comes back soon!

  18. Raymond BB Smith says:

    has the show in Wheeling WV been canceled? looking forward to having you back in Paden City WV on Labor Day

  19. Mike Hansen says:

    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.

  21. Bonnie says:

    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?

  22. Kim Frank says:

    Link to Crossville won’t let you buy tickets. Calendar doesn’t show Jimmy being there.

  23. Kim Frank says:

    Thanks Nina,
    Take Care.

  24. Ed Rufo says:

    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.

    • Robert C. says:

      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.

  25. Richard says:

    Is there anything scheduled in the Buffalo New York area?

  26. mark andrews says:

    Saw you tonight at the concert in Pace. Awesome performance. Thank you so much. I was totally blessed.

  27. Wayne Orr says:

    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.

  28. Mary says:

    Is there any thing scheduled for the Chattanooga, TN area?

  29. Robert C. says:

    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.

  30. Amy says:

    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!

  31. Reva Richardson says:

    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.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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!!

  32. Ed Rufo says:

    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.

    • Ed Rufo says:

      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.

  33. Tracey says:


    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).

    Thank you

  34. Bonnie Wells says:

    Great show in Celina, Ohio. Hope he’s coming back next year!

  35. Jerry D. Smith says:

  36. Nancy Seymour says:

    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.

  37. Mike Mast says:

    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!

  38. Shirley Schepers says:

    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.

  39. Robert C. says:

    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.

  40. Ida Taylor says:

    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

  41. Tracey says:

    Will Jimmy be anywhere in Virginia besides Radford and The Yellow Barn this year

  42. Gail Kizer says:

    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!

  43. Bill says:

    when will jimmy be in oklahoma

  44. Patty Giffen says:

    Dear Nina,
    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.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Hopefully we will be coming up there in 2016.

      • Patty Giffen says:

        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!

  45. Judy Billing says:

    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.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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.

  46. Carol Walker says:

    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!!

  47. Ginny Randolph says:

    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!

  48. Myrene Reddick says:

    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?

  49. Ginny Randolph says:

    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!

  50. S says:

    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
    Winchester, OH

    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.

  51. mary cluley says:

    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!

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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.

  52. 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!

    • Nina Fortune says:

      It is a Boot Daddy concert. We sure do hope to see you there!! If you can email 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.


  53. 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

    • Nina Fortune says:

      I know we will be in Apache Junction next March. That may be the closest we get to Sun City in the near future.

  54. Kerry Straughn says:

    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?

  55. Karen Owens Lacks says:

    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

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Jimmy will be in Rainsville, AL the last Saturday of this month. That should be a little closer to you.

      • Karen Owens Lacks says:

        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 ?

  56. Dennis Shifflett says:

    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!

    Thank you,


  57. Ed Rufo says:

    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

  58. Jim & Kally Reynolds says:

    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!

  59. Bill Adams says:

    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.

  60. Chris Scheer says:

    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!

  61. Dennis Campbell says:

    I’m a big fan, and the son of another big fan, Pastor Bob Campbell. I hope to see the show in Amherst, Virginia.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      So good to hear from you!!!!

      • Dennis Campbell says:

        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,
        Dennis Campbell

  62. Robert Coleman says:

    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.

  63. William T. says:

    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

  64. William T. says:

    how do we get a autographed picture of jimmy

    • Ed Rufo says:

      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.


  65. Ron Gordon Sr says:

    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!

  66. Plese Brock says:

    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

  67. Jimm Grimm says:

    Hi Nina,
    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.

  68. Al Borowski says:

    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

  69. mary brewer says:

    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.

    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,

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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!!

  71. Al Borowski says:

    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?

  72. June Sunde says:

    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.

  73. william t says:

    will jimmy be signing autographs in branson this Monday and tuesday

  74. patricia hanshaw says:

    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.

  75. Robert Coleman says:

    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.

  76. william t says:

    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.

  78. Lori Carver says:

    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

  79. Mary danison says:

    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.

  80. Brad Tyler says:

    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.

  81. Robert Coleman says:

    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.

  82. Tom says:

    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.

  83. Allen says:

    Does Jimmy have any concert dates in 2016 in Alabama, South Georgia, or the Florida Panhandle?

    Thank you.

  84. Richard Tompkins says:

    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

  85. Married Vietnam Vets says:

    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!

  86. Dennis Campbell says:

    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.

  87. bill says:

    when will you guys be back in branson we loved his show

  88. Robert Coleman says:

    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?

  89. Mary says:

    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!!

  90. Dennis says:

    Will Jimmy be in Oregon or Washington at a later date?

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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!

  91. Dennis says:

    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.

  92. Corle Kyle says:

    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

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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.

  93. Robert says:

    Any chance Jimmy will play in Oklahoma in 2016, would love to hear Elizabeth live, Robert, Tulsa

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Not sure, I know he will probably be in Texas and Kansas again.

      • Robert says:

        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!

  94. Bonnie Slykhuis says:

    Would love it if you got somewhere close to Iowa.

  95. Riley & Maggie says:

    Just got tickets ordered for June 4,at NewHolland PA. We really need a “Jimmy fix”.


  96. Mark Graham says:

    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.

  97. Lorraine Boyden says:

    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.

  98. Myra Crawford says:

    Does Jimmy have any plans to come to Columbia, SC anytime in 2016?

  99. Terry curry says:

  103. Tracey says:

    Is Jimmy playing in Louisa, Va this year

  104. Chuck Bradshaw says:

    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.

  105. Linda Booth says:

    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.?

  106. Josie Evans says:

    Are there any plans for Jimmy to come to the West Virginia State Fair this year ?

  107. Fred Rorex says:

    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

  108. Brenda L Pattengale says:

    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.

  109. gary says:

    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.

  110. Robin Heuver says:

    I’d love to see you in concert. I’m from Sheboygan Wisconsin

  111. Fred skeen says:

    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

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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!!

  112. Bill says:

    We al ready bought our tickets for branson 10/24/16 and 10/25/16
    But I don’t see it on the schedule

  113. Doris Rodgers says:

    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

  114. Perry and Patsy Carlisle says:

    For 8/16/2016 you have 2 shows in two different locations.

  115. Connie Bazzle says:

    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?

  116. Robin says:

    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.

  117. Jim Saunders says:

    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.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      You would probably wear whatever you would wear if you were seeing Jimmy in a theater, casual.

      • Eddie says:

        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.

        • Dot Gloyd says:

          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!!

          • Eddie says:

            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.

  118. Art winterfeld says:

    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

  119. Pat & Madge Healy says:

    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!

  120. Pat & Madge Healy says:

    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!

  121. Jeff says:

    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.

  122. Wanda says:

    Does jimmy ever come to Mississippi

  123. Darrin and Vicki Franke says:

    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

  124. Eddie says:

    You can catch Jimmy on Opry Country Classics on WSM Online on May 5th, Thursday,7PM CST (8PM EST).

  125. Dot Gloyd says:

    Eddie, Hope to see you at Yoder’s on June 4th!!
    Dot & Bob

    • Eddie says:


      See my post above about the Yoder’s concert.


      • Eddie says:

        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.


  126. Doris Rodgers says:

    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.

  127. Eddie says:

    Jimmy will be on on Thursday, June 9th, at 3 PM (CDT).

  128. Andrew & Lana Glasco says:

    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.

  129. Eddie says:

    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.

  130. Waren Fuller says:

    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.

  131. Greg Chapman says:

    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.

  132. Waren Fuller says:

    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.

  133. gail sharpe says:

    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!!!!

  134. Kelly Toe says:

    We need to see you here

  135. Waren Fuller says:

    Is Jimmy going to be in York, Pa. in December? TPC Banquet Center is not showing that date.

    • Eddie says:

      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.

  136. Gilbert Costs says:

    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

  137. Diane Preisen says:

    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!

  138. Melvin Wood ( Woody) says:

    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.

  139. Hi Nina. I’m Georgette Couvall and I’m one of Dr. Kenneth E. Salyer’s ( 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?


  140. Joe Clark says:

    Miss Nina

    We spoke by phone
    Any chance of Jimmy coming back to Wisconsin?
    Caught him in Prairie during sacrifice and it was phenomenal!

  141. Lorraine Boyden says:

    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.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      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.

  142. Vanessa Smith says:

    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!

  143. 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.

  144. Dan Knowlton says:

    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.

    • Eddie says:

      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.

  145. David Ransom says:

    Will Jimmy be doing another Alaska cruise?

  146. Eddie says:

    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.

  147. Linda Dunnivan says:

    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.

  148. Dallas Hetletved says:

    Any plans for Jimmy to do a quartet concert with Dailey & Vincent like the one in Wilkesboro, NC last spring?

  149. 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!

  150. Bill Adams says:

    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!

  151. Robert Dodson says:

    Will Jimmy be coming back to Scottsburg IN in 2017?

  152. Mike Mast says:

    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!

  153. Jearl Dillon says:

    Thanks for all the hard work and dedication

  154. Gary Boothe says:

    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.

  155. luckyoldsun says:

    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?

  156. Ann marie says:

    Ireland loves Jimmy fortune 🙂
    My mum and I are huge fans

  157. Christine says:

    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!

  158. Ron Boyd says:

    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.

  159. Carol Graybeal says:

    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.

  160. Jeff Leake says:

    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!

  161. Pat Smith says:

    Hi Nina & Jimmy –
    We talked to you both after Jimmy’s concert at the Mining Camp in Apache Junction AZ a few weeks ago. You gave us a brochure on the Alaska cruise and it convinced us to stop putting-off a trip to Alaska we’ve planned to do someday. So “someday” is this July – we’re coming along! Any tips regarding “formal nights” on the ship? In AZ & WV we define formal a little differently than most.
    Do you think Jimmy might sing “The Great Pretender” for my husband Brian as a way of thanking him for saying YES to the Alaska adventure? Thanks for continuing to bring great music and good Christian values into people’s lives.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Hey there!! Formal nights can be anything from the best dress you can find to something you would wear to church. You will see it all. We’re so glad you are going. If you have other questions email me at or Deb Dodd. Please remind me of the song request when we get on the ship.

  162. Dallas Hetletved says:

    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!

    • Robert Coleman says:

      They also did one in Dublin, VA and it was wonderful and yes I agree they need to do more of these showns

  163. Marilyn Embrey says:

    What another fantastic show at Nelson County High School-VA on Saturday evening. Jimmy is so blessed with a gift of a voice that he shares & inspires all who hear & enjoy. We are so proud of our hometown star & may God continue to bless your career and your family.

  164. Dennis Campbell says:

    Rocky Mount, Virginia. Great lyrics, perfectly matched to the music, flawlessly performed. No wonder your songs touch so many people. Thank you for your kind words about my mother, Helen. Praying for Nina and her friend.

  165. Virginia Navarrete says:

    Does Jimmy ever come to Texas? Dallas/Ft.Worth, Midland, TX… I’ve always loved the Statler Brothers, and he just made them that much more special. Thank you! God’s many blessings to you all!

  166. Peggy Kidd says:

    Date & cost of Jimmy Fortune Concert in March 2018 at Nelson County High School, Lovingston, VA

    • Nina Fortune says:

      The date is 3-24-18. The school sells the tickets and I don’t think they have them on sale yet. They will set up a website to sell the tickets.

  167. Georgette Couvall says:

    Jimmy Fortune will be in concert
    in Wisconsin in September. Here
    is the information:

  168. John & Becky Tillman says:

    Jimmy is a very deep hearted artist. We hope see him in South Carolina.

  169. Cathy Hyde says:

    Nina, good Sunday afternoon to you. I saw Jimmy talking with Bill Gaither on the Gaither channel about Mrs. Grills. The lady that helped Jimmy’s grandfather raise Jimmy’s mother and uncle after his grandmother passed away. Jimmy said that he has been trying to find Mrs. Grills. I was curious to know if Jimmy has been able to locate her or find out about her. It was such a sweet story of and she was such a Blessing that the Lord sent.

  170. Eddie says:

    Jimmy will be on Grande Ole Opry on July 14th. You can listen to it online 610 WSM radio. Check the Opry website for the approximate time of Jimmy’s performance. The Opry show starts at 7PM CDT or 8PM EDT. I’m not sure of the times for the MDT or PDT zones. You might want to check out the WSM site – I think you may have to register if it’s your first time.

  171. Eddie says:

    Correction – Grande Ole Opry – Radio Station ID is 650 AM WSM – sorry for the confusion.

  172. Elizabeth Branche says:

    Is the concert in Mcleansboro,Il on the 9th of September at a inside venue and how much are tickets? Thank You.Elizabeth Annette MAYS Branche.

  173. Pat says:

    Would love to see Jimmy here in Minnesota. Any future plans for getting up this way? Thanks.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      We love coming up there but don’t have anything on the schedule right now. We are still booking 2018 though so maybe!!

  174. Lynn says:

    yes let get him to Minnesota

  175. Adam says:

    I’ve heard that Mr. Fortune is coming to Searcy AR, in 2018. Is this true?

  176. Darlene Campbell says:

    I was at the last three shows Jimmy that you did in Lewisburg, WV. Last night was greatest yet. Going to start traveling to shows. Once a year is not enough. You deserve all the accolades YOUR FANS can give you. I have you in the center of my WALL OF FAME MUSIC ROOM. Your tribute to our wonderful servicemen and women gets me every time. You are truly a great man. My favorites are MY ONLY LOVE, I BELIEVE, and of course A NAME ON A WALL. I cry everytime I hear those. Your writing is so heartfelt and genuine. HOW GREAT THOU ART had me standing and crying till I could walk away. Got the new cd. Love it. Played it on the way home. Keep it up Jimmy and you will be on everyone’s list of greats. The rest of the group was fabulous also. Mr FIDDLE PLAYER was exceptional. Keepers, Jimmy, keepers. Thank you a wonderful evening. See you next time. Nina-you are great!

  177. Roger Frear says:

    Hi there can you please tell me if jimmy has any
    plans to tour New Zealand

  178. Jack Moody says:

    Hi Nina, Does Jimmy ever do Gospel music only performances? Thank you for your time…God Bless

  179. Belinda Grier says:

    Hi Nina will Jimmy be going back to Shipshawanna in 2018

  180. Chris Cole says:

    Hope everything is going great for you guys as my mom and stepfather (front row) plan on attending tonight’s performance Jimmy is doing at the Halifax County Fair. They both enjoy Jimmy’s performances and very much and are looking forward to tonight’s performance.

  181. Gary B says:

    Is there any chance that Jimmy will appear with Dailey and Vincent for the show next spring in Dublin, VA? We were at the last one they did together there, and I have never seen a more entertaining and inspiring show.

  182. John McCaffree says:

    I just recently learned of the news that The Mining Camp restaurant in Apache Junction Arizona suffered a devastating fire on July 25th, 2017 and is beyond repair. We really enjoy seeing Jimmy and his friends at the Mining Camp and have for the last several years. We are wondering if he will be performing at some other place in the Phoenix area this winter as we do not want to miss a chance to see him again. I realize he does not ask to perform but accepts invitations. Please, any information you can impart will be appreciated and we hope something will work out so we may see him perform again in Arizona! Thank You and God Bless Jimmy and his entire family

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Not sure what will happen. They will be rebuilding but don’t know if it will be done in time for Jimmy’s scheduled shows in Feb. They may consider another option, that’s why the shows are still listed on the website schedule. As soon as we know something for sure will will send out emails if you are on the newsletter list.

  183. Robert Maciejewski says:

    I saw Jimmy at Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin, a few weeks ago. His show, and those of his sidekicks, was outstanding. I couldn’t stick around to meet him afterward, but he sure took to the audience well. I will go see him anywhere within reason again. An exceptional man!

  184. Tammie Conaway says:

    I really love hearing Jimmy sing.. You can really feel the spirt upon him when he sings.
    Was wondering if he would ever consider coming to Jacksonville Florida, better yet Middleburg just outside of Jacksonvilee.

  185. Carol & Len Titus says:

    Dear Nina and Jimmy ~ Len & I were so blessed to spend my birthday, Feb. 24 a couple of years ago with you at the Lost Dutchman. We prebought tickets to see you this past 24th, but tragically lost our son on the 7th of Feb. and were naturally unable to attend. So this coming Feb., 2018 had once again planned to see you in Apache J. but are sad to hear of the loss of the historic Dutchman restaurant. We shall hold tight to our tickets in hope that we will once again be blessed to see you somewhere “down yonder”. When we need solace we listen to Banks of Jordan. It reassures us we will see our son again. Hugs & blessings to you and your crew.
    Carol & Len Titus

    • Nina Fortune says:

      I’m so sorry about your son. The Mingin Camp in Apache Junction will be rebuilding so hopefully we will be back one year and will see you then. Have a great Christmas.

      • Len & Carol Titus says:

        Nina &Jimmy…thank you for your kind words. It has been the kind words, thoughts and prayers from folks such as yourselves, that have carried us thus far along our very sad journey.
        Carol & Len

  186. Robert Coleman says:

    Yet another great concert in York, PA. The attendees are truly blessed to be able to his Jimmy’s fantastic voice and get me talk to him one on one from time to time. I still remember you you two had the show in Ocean City at Christmas time and my wife and I would stand ant talk to you two prior to the show in the lobby of that nice little theater. We will again be in Lovingston this year and coming down again to see Jimmy with Vincent and Dailey. We can never get enough of seeing Jimmy. Sorry we did not get a chance to say hi to you Nina in York, PA.

  187. Bob says:

    When will you be coming back to New Jersey?

  188. Mary Sorden says:

    Sure would love for you to come out West. There’s no one like Jimmy. Love his music..

  189. Mary Sorden says:

    Just watched you on the Daily & Vincent show. You are awesome!!

  190. Angelia Smith-Johnson says:

    Really enjoyed your performance at Harding University in Searcy, AR tonight. It was wonderful. I also want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the hug. My husband told you about me being just told I am in remission from Stage IV Lung Cancer. When you heard that you asked if you could give me a hug. That really made my night. I still am taking chemotherapy every 3 weeks but with God being in control I can beat this. I really appreciate it and all you do. God Bless and prayers for safe travels.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      It was a pleasure meeting you and thank you for your compliments on the show. I will pray the the chemo keeps you in remission.

  191. Sean Verhoeff says:

    When will Jimmy have a show near Fort Campbell KY.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Jimmy plays in Benton KY every year which is close. This year is supposed to be on 8-25-18.

      • Sean Verhoeff says:

        I completely forgot about this comment my apologies. I will be in a feild training for the army in Louisiana at that time. Unfortunately i will not be able to make it

  192. Lynn says:

    Any plans on coming to Minnesota or North Dakota in the future we would really love to see Jimmy in person he has a way to make the music come alive

  193. Rooster Simpson says:

    I hope Jimmy makes it up to my area by St Louis,MO.,or even near Alton,Illinois.I see he is doing Branson,but wish it would be close up here. If the Lord’s willing, maybe 2019 ?
    I also caught the tale-end of Jimmy and Ben Isaacs,in the Studio with Eddie Stubbs,on the airwaves of WSM 650 am Radio. Cool.God annointed.

  194. Georgette Couvall says:

    Hi Nina. I just heard today that Jimmy will be doing another benefit concert for the World Craniofacial Foundation ( in Wisconsin in September.

    If yes, can you let me know the date, place etc. about this event? Thank you so much!

  195. Jacquelyn Meyer says:

    Jimmy, We enjoyed your concert today at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida. Oh – your voice is so wonderful. If you would have had another show tonight – we would have been there!!!
    Thank you for being you – for sharing your faith – for uplifting us and singing your heart out.

    P.S. We are Iowans who have seem you too many times to count – on your own and with the Statlers.

  196. Logan says:

    Is jimmy coming near Boonville Indiana soon

  197. Robert Coleman says:

    Hi Nina. Looking forward to seeing you and Jimmy in Lovingston and then we will be coming back down to see the show in Dulbin a couple weeks later. Lots of time on Route 81 but so worth it to see the singer Joan and I think is the best tenor voice of today.

  198. Lorraine Boyden says:

    Nina, Is Jimmy do a cruise with Deb Dodd in 2019. I enjoy Deb’s cruise more than Country Music cruise. I talked to Jimmy on the last cruise. I loved it. Because I live in New England I can’t see you guys except on the cruise.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Not in 2019. As you know we are booked on the other in 2019 so we will have to skip a year. I figured people didn’t want to do Alaska again since we did it two years in a row.

  199. Bill says:

    My wife and I love the starlet and of course Jimmy is amazing we have been to see him a few times and plan going to see him again in branso n I’m October, what would it take to get him to sing Don Reid’s son the other side of the cross

  200. Bill says:

    Sorry about spelling, spell ck

  201. Donna Massie says:

    Hi Nina,

    We travel to Nashville every year during CMA Fest, and would love to see Jimmy during that time. Will he be performing anywhere this year?

  202. Sean Verhoeff says:

    Nina, will Jimmy have any shows in the fort Campbell area any time soon.

  203. Graeme Foord says:

    I have two things to ask. Firstly: I have been a huge fan of Jimmy’s for years but i have never seen him live. Can you tell me if there is any likelihood of Jimmy coming to play in Scotland or UK?

    Lastly: Is there anywhere I could purchase a copy of “Far Side Banks of Jordan” as a backing track (minus the vocal). The version on the Hits and Hymns DVD is superb. It would be fantastic to be able to do it in church.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Thanks for writing! Although we would love to come to the UK we don’t have any plans of it right now.
      The label for Hits and Hymns has not released any tracks of the CD.

  204. Nathan says:

    I saw Jimmy last night in Knoxville. What a show, and what a talent! I saw him previously as a child in 1982, and again in the Wisconsin Dells on the 4th-to-last Statler show. He never disappoints. Keep up the great work! Can’t wait to get to my next show.

  205. EDNA HUGHES says:

    I saw Jimmy in Douglas, GA on June 8th, had an awesome night. Jimmy and his entire staff are some of the kindest people I have ever met. I was ushered to the table by one of his staff where Jimmy came around to have a picture taken with me. I was given an autographed photo, paid for by the staff member who so sweetly helped me back to a seat. Thank you, I’m sorry I did not get your name but you know who you are. I will see you all again if you are ever close enough for me to get there. God bless you all!!!

  206. Brad daffron says:

    Jimmy Fortune is the most down to earth entertainer i have ever had the pleasure of meeting! My wife, 6 year old daughter and myself were stopped at taco bell/KFC in Benton illinois, I thought I recognized the man walking out, sure enough, it was Jimmy! I went out to see, he was getting in his vehicle, and he could have told me to leave, but, did the very opposite, he spent about 10 minutes talking, put my daughter on his knee, and even autographed a c.d. Copy for us, which is proudly displayed in our living room! A man of international stardom takes time out for an average family, he has class, and a huge family, and is down to earth as ever! Jimmy is a true gentleman and I’m so glad God saw fit to bless this man with fame, fortune, but most of all kindness and humility! It was great to meet you Jimmy, friends and fans for life, the Daffron’s, DuQuoin il

  207. Peggy Johnson says:

    Hi Nina,
    My sister and I saw Jimmy in Knoxville, IA June 1st and he was fantastic. In checking his tour schedule, it shows that he will be at the Woodstock Opera House in Woodstock, IL on Sept. 28. That is only about 25 miles from my house and we would love to see him again. In trying to book tickets, there is nothing on their schedule for a show on Sept 28. Please advise. Thanks

  208. Juli says:

    Will Ryan Joseph be joining Jimmy on any of these tour dates?

  209. Laura says:

    We love to listen to Jimmy. We just moved my father into a nursing home and his music is helping with the transition of leaving his home. Jimmy’s music is a real testament of faith.
    We would love to see him. I noticed you will be coming to Spencer, Iowa in 2018 for a performance. We have had several quartet groups perform in our church, such as the Collinsworth Family. Would you ever consider stopping by and witness at one of our Sunday or evening service while you were in the area? We live in a beautiful town of about 7,000 about 40 miles from Spencer, Iowa. We have a beautiful church with outstanding sound system. I know it is not on the tour schedule, but hospitality in Iowa is great and we love gospel music. We would love to make it happen for you while you are out the direction any way. We would be so blessed. Willing to hear if you are interested or talk details. Thank-You! With God all things are possible!

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Normally our booking agent would handle this but I can say that when we book a show they do not allow Jimmy to perform, usually within 150 miles, within months of a show. We will also be driving in Monday for the show on Monday night.

  210. Butch Suor says:

    The last time we saw Jimmy was at Music Ranch Montana and we had to drive 6 hrs. to Livingston. We took a picture with my wife and Jimmy but for some reason it didn’t work. We are wondering if Jimmy has any plans to possibly come out Idaho way. We live in Stites, ID which is about 80 miles east of Lewiston. Least I can say I live 80 miles from the nearest stop light. We love you guys and what you do and I just thought I’d ask. Thank you and may GOD bless you both.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      For some reason we don’t get out your way often, although it’s extremely beautiful. We have been to Livingston every other year so hopefully we will be there next year.

  211. Brenda Anderson says:

    Nina, met you and Jimmy again at Hiwassee fair in North Ga. July 28, 2018! I’d written you a note! I brought my husband Donnie, up to meet you after show, people had thinned out, and You were packing up! Jimmy was talking to friends, we got home the following Monday evening we have about 7 to 8 hour drive, it was so worth it, but unfortunately, Donnie suffered a stroke Monday night or early Tuesday morning, as of now, he can’t use his left hand or walk alone, please put him on your an Jimmy’s prayer list, I know The spirit of God was in the the when he sang “I Believe” it’s one of our favorite songs! Please come back to Douglas, Ga, don’t wait till blueberries come!

  212. Danny Murphy says:

    Would love to see Jimmy come back through Northeast Iowa. He played in Oelwein five or so years ago, but please come back to this area, we want to finally get to see you we did not get to last time.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Jimmy will be in Spencer IA in September opening for The Oak Ridge Boys. It would be great to come back to Oelwein again. Maybe we can check for next year.

  213. Barbara Emert says:

    I had the opportunity to see Jimmy at the North Georgia fair recently. It was just the most fantastic experience. I was a Statler fan and enjoyed him with them, but as a solo act you learn more about him as a person – truly outstanding. Much appreciation for a great time!

  214. Libby Zwilling says:

    Jimmy used to play in Fountain Hills and Apache Junction. Since the Mining Camp Restaurant burned down, will Jimmy be coming back to Arizona? I’d love to see him in Prescott, AZ

  215. Georgette Couvall says:

    Former Statler Brother, Jimmy Fortune will be in concert in Wisconsin on Saturday, 9/29. Here is the information:

  216. Bill Turnbow says:

    I heard Jimmy was writing a book is that true and if it is is he finished with it and where can I get it

    • Nina Fortune says:

      It is true but not sure when it will be out. Please sign up for the emails and you will get a notification when it’s completed.

  217. Debbie Holt says:

    Hello, would someone be able to tell me how I can find out more information on the performance on December 3 2018 at Antioch Church of the Brethren in Woodstock VA? I’ve looked on the church website and did not see any details on how I might be able to attend the event with my husband. Thanks again!

    • Nina Fortune says:

      The telephone number listed on the website for this date is 540-325-1660.

      • Deborah Holt says:

        Nina, thank you very much! I’ll give them a call. We really enjoyed the performance in Radford, Virginia on Fourth of July. Many blessings to you and your family for sharing Christ through your music.

  218. Kathi says:

    We last saw Jimmy at a benefit in Hopkins, MN a few years ago. Is he planning to come to southern Minnesota any time soon?

  219. Candy says:

    will there be any shows in Texas near fort worth?

    • Nina Fortune says:

      We played Arlington, Weatherford, and Corsicana this past April. We are making plans to come back sometime next year.

  220. Debra McCusker says:

    My fella and I just saw Jimmy and his band at the Wayne County Fairground on October 13, 2018. What a wonderful show! We are touched that Jimmy and the gang would offer up their talents in such an intimate venue and for such a good cause, the KW Methodist Children’s Home.

    We are already preparing to purchase tickets for the December show in Liberty, NC.

  221. David VanBibber says:

    When are you coming back to Ohio? May not remember me but the Holy Spirit came on me strong while you were singing the old rugged cross. I couldn’t stop crying for hours. You hugged me and told me God had big plans for me. I bought your CD. Didn’t know your music or the song. But the next morning while listing to the song If I was God, the Holy Spirit let me understand what Jesus went through and what really happened for us on the cross. And he has been using me since. Would love to see you again.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      That’s wonderful! Thank you for letting us know.
      Not sure when we will be back up to Ohio, hopefully sometime in 2019.

  222. Bill says:

    Hi Nina
    Loved seeing you in branson,
    I was the guy looking for the coffee mugs

  223. Robert and Joan Coleman says:

    Looking forward to December 1st to see you and Jimmy in York, PA. We have come to every concert you have done in York as well as each one in Lovingston, VA as well as a few others including the ones with Dailey and Vincent. We even went to one of hsi first solo outings in East Stroudasburg, PA at a church and he was wonderful as usual.

  224. Jennifer Ramirez says:

    I was so sorry to receive to call that the scheduled for Branson Dec 12 & 13 had been cancelled I was so looking forward to Jimmy’s Christmas show This would have been the 3rd time I would have been able to see him First at the El Dorado Springs Picnic in July then again Oct 19 in Branson as my granddaughters birthday gift I am hoping that Jimmy will be in Branson in 2019 so we will be able to see his show again

  225. Mike says:

    Oh my God, still loving the concert last week in York, PA. Three hour drive from NJ, but worth every minute. Jimmy sounded incredible. The show was out of this world. He mixed some Christmas music with some new music (which was really good) , some solo music and some Statler classics. His voice is impeccable. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but he blew me and my wife away. If you get a chance to see him, don’t miss the opportunity. You will not regret it. He was so down to earth. It felt like he was a lifelong friend that could have been sitting at our table. If you are lucky enough to get him touring in your area, go see him. You will not regret it. Amazing show. Can’t wait to see him again next year.

  226. william says:

    looking forward to seeing you guys in hinton ok, that’s a treat for us, its close to home

  227. Jennifer Ramirez says:

    Do you know dates for Branson this year

  228. Terry L. Kiser, Sr says:

    Saw Mr. Fortune tonight in Newberry, SC. I knew it would be a great show and I was not disappointed. I’ve been to many concerts from old (real) country music to Rock and Roll but tonight I saw what I will always call the best concert I have ever attended. I got a chance to speak to Mr. Fortune and get autographs and pictures and I told him, “When I was younger (before he came along) I always said if I could sing like anyone, it would be Jim Reeves. But lately, if I could sing like anyone I wanted to, it would be Jimmy Fortune or Jim Reeves.” There have been many great voices over the years in country music. But a great voice is nothing if the singer doesn’t put his or her heart into it. Jimmy Fortune does that very well. Thank you Mr. Fortune and God bless you and yours. Terry and Barbara Kiser North, SC

  229. Jackie says:

    I was wondering if Jimmy has play at Merlefest, Wilkesboro, NC. This would be an honor to have him sing there. We saw him the last 2 Novembers in Liberty, NC and have followed his career ever since he started. My Only Love was played at our Wedding in 1985 and it still make me cry. After more than 30 years of marriage this has been my go to song when I sometimes forget why I Love my hubby so. Thank you sharing Jimmy with us.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Jimmy did play there several years ago with D&V. Although I don’t have a contract yet, there has been an offer for Jimmy to play in Wilkesboro, not Merlefest, in October.


    2nd request Do you have any Branson dates yet

  231. Pamela Sciabica says:

    I wanted to know off Jimmy can call my mom on April 27th to wish her a Happy 80th Birthday. We go and see him in Weirsdale, Fl Strawberry Festival. She’s just loves him to pieces and that would just make her Birthday so special. Please let me know if you could make that happen. Her phone number 352-584-6824. My name isn’t Pam my phone # 352-238-0026. Thank you so much.❤️😍🙏😇

  232. Betty and Larry LaPatka says:

    Any idea when your dearly beloved will be coming to East Tennessee other than the Gather Fest in May 2019? Thank You
    in advance.
    Betty and Larry LaPatka
    Parrottsville, Tennessee

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Not sure. We just found out for sure the promoter for the Pigeon Forge shows will not be using the Country Tonite Theatrr this year.

  233. william turnbow says:

    are you guys going to be in branson this year

    Mrs. Fortune, About 8 years ago I ordered an autographed poster from your husband, for my mother who was going thru treatment for stage 3 breast cancer at age 70. Mr. Fortune personalized the signing of the poster, for which my mother very happy to receive. I am sorry that it has taken me so long to say thank you for this. My mother, Nancy, is doing well and has recovered / and has been diagnosed as cancer free now! But I wanted to say thank you to you and your husband for taking the time to sign the poster and cd I ordered for her. Again, I wanted to thank you both. She is a huge fan. I am planning on surprising her with a short trip up to Scottsburg, IN for one of Mr. Fotune’s two shows. Thank you both so much. God Bless!

    Cannot wait until Saturday night to see you and Jimmy in Lovingston. We have b een driving down from Pennsylvania each year he has done the show at the high school to raise money for the music department. We love seeing you two in York, PA too in December but this show in Lovingston is special.

  239. Jeremy Glass says:

    I hope to attend a concert if Jimmy ever makes it over to Houston, Texas. I’m only 34, but I have been a fan since the early 90s when I first found out about the Statler Brothers. Jimmy is an amazing singer and songwriter. I highly respect that work.

    • Nina Fortune says:

      Thank you!! I do know we will be in TX in October for several shows but most of them will be near the Dallas area.

  240. Vikki Scull says:

    I absolutely love listening to Jimmy and was wondering if he will be coming back to The Orange Blossom Opry in Weirsdale, Fl. during the winter months. I saw him last December and his show was amazing! I know that he will be there in May, but since I am a snowbird, I will not be in Florida at that time.
    I loved seeing both of you on The Country Music Cruise!!

  241. Nina Fortune: I am very excited about going to hear Jimmy sing in Taunton Ma. June 9th. I wanted him to know that I requested the song ( On The Far Side Banks Of Jorden played at my sisters Funeral April 29th, 2019. That song made her funeral so special and it touched my heart deeply. I have his CD with that song and I am going to ask him to sign it for me if I get a chance to shake hands with him and I hope I do. God bless you both and thank you Nina for sharing your husbands gift of song with so many good Christian people. I’m sure it brought smiles to many hundred’s of people.

  242. Jennifer Ramirez says:

  243. Paul Mitchell says:
