How does a legend celebrate his birthday?

In the case of George Jones, who will turn 80 on September 13, it’s with a birthday party at the Grand Ole Opry. And dessert.

The Opry is hosting Jones’ upcoming birthday bash, which will include a tribute concert featuring a lineup with Alan Jackson, Montgomery Gentry, and Pam Tillis — as well as a dessert contest.

It isn’t that Jones has a particular sweet tooth. The competition — which will see Jones picking his favorite from three contenders — is being held in a contest to celebrate the Opry’s 86th anniversary.

Hopeful pastry chefs can submit their recipes through the Opry’s Facebook page between now and September 2. The three entries with the most “likes” will then be served up during Jones’ party. The winner will win a trip to the Opry’s celebration in October, as well as a shot at having their dessert added to the Opry menu.
