Strait, Jackson to salute Jones on CMA Awards

By

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — George Strait and Alan Jackson will team up to pay tribute to George Jones at next month’s Country Music Association Awards.

The CMA announced in a news release Monday that its two most-nominated singers will perform together to salute Jones, who died earlier this year at 81.

Strait’s appearance means all five entertainer-of-the-year nominees — Strait, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Blake Shelton — will be performing at the 47th annual awards, held Nov. 6 in Nashville, Tenn. Shelton won the award last year.

Also scheduled to perform are Kacey Musgraves, who’s tied with Swift for the most award nominations; Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, and show co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley.
