The CMA announced its two most-nominated singers will perform together to salute George Jones, who died earlier this year at age 81.
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 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 Nov. 6 in Nashville. 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.
We will carry the CMA Awards show live on WBKO-ABC at 7:00 p.m. central time Wednesday, Nov. 6.
