NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — George Jones may be gone, but he certainly won’t be forgotten at this year’s Country Music Association Awards.
The CMA says two of its most-nominated singers — George Strait and Alan Jackson — will team up in a tribute to the late country legend.
Jones died earlier this year at age 81. Now that Strait is performing, all five of the entertainer-of-the-year nominees will be singing during the Nov. 6 ceremony in Nashville. The others are Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton.
