NASHVILLE -- 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.
