Standing on stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. in late November, Lisa Matassa was wrapping up rehearsals for her part in a tribute to country music great George Jones.
She was to sing part of a medley on the Jones classic, “The Love in Your Eyes” with a few other artists when she received a special request from a noteworthy person. Nancy Jones, the late country singer’s wife, asked the Plainview resident to wrap her voice around “Walk Through This World With Me.”
