Top Nominees in CMA Awards History Alan Jackson and George Strait Set to Perform Tribute to Late Country Music Legend George Jones

Tickets Sold-Out for Fifth Consecutive Year

The star-studded lineup for "Country Music's Biggest Night(TM)" continues to grow with today's announcement of performers for "The 47th Annual CMA Awards."

Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Kacey Musgraves, Brad Paisley, and Carrie Underwood are scheduled to perform. Alan Jackson and George Strait, the two top nominees in CMA Awards history, will perform together in a tribute to the legendary George Jones, who was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1992 and remains one of the most recognizable and evocative voices in the history of the genre. Jones passed away in April of this year.

Paisley and Underwood will host the ceremony for the sixth consecutive year live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6 (8:00-11:00 PM/EST) on the ABC Television Network.

Reigning CMA Album of the Year winner, Church, is nominated this year for Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for "The Only Way I Know," with Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. Church is an eight-time CMA Awards nominee who earned his first nomination in 2011 for New Artist of the Year.

One of this year's most nominated artists, newcomers and first-time nominees Florida Georgia Line, earned nods for New Artist and Vocal Duo of the Year, as well as Single of the Year for "Cruise" and Musical Event of the Year for the song's remix with Nelly.

Jackson is the second most nominated artist in CMA history, with 81 nominations and 16 trophies. He is a three-time CMA Entertainer of the Year and two-time CMA Male Vocalist of the Year. Jackson earned his first CMA Awards nominations in 1990 when he was up for New Artist, Album of the Year for Here In The Real World, and Single and Song of the Year for the album's title track.

Musgraves - who is also a first-time nominee - is tied as the year's most nominated artist. She collected six nominations including Female Vocalist, New Artist of the Year, Album of the Year for Same Trailer Different Park, Single and Song of the Year for "Merry Go 'Round," and Song of the Year for Miranda Lambert's "Mama's Broken Heart."

Paisley is among the top CMA Award winners of all time, with 14 trophies. He is a former CMA Entertainer of the Year and three-time CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, with multiple wins in the Music Video and Musical Event of the Year categories. Paisley's first CMA Award came in 2000 when he won the Horizon Award, now known as New Artist of the Year.

Strait is not only the top CMA Award nominee of all time, but also the top CMA Award winner with 22 trophies and 82 nominations. He is nominated this year for Entertainer of the Year, an honor he has taken home twice before. Strait is a five-time CMA Male Vocalist and Album of the Year winner.

Three-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Underwood, is again nominated in that category, as well as for Album of the Year for Blown Away, and Music Video of the Year for the album's title track. Underwood is a five-time CMA Award winner with 18 career CMA Awards nominations.

Tickets for "The 47th Annual CMA Awards" are officially sold-out, marking the fifth year in a row the ceremony has sold out in advance. This is the earliest tickets have sold out.
