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.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — Composer Steven Sametz has written dozens of pieces in his long and prolific career, perhaps none so personal as the one he's about to begin: a requiem for the victims of the schoolhouse massacre in Newtown, Conn.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — It's going to be a long, cold winter for the gladiators, and perhaps even longer for actor Joe Morton, who plays the debatably diabolical dad Rowan Pope to his political-fixer daughter, Olivia (Kerry Washington).
Will the Golden Globes nominations bring focus to an awards season that's so far been blurry?
