(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 November 6 ceremony in Nashville. The others are Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton
