More stars added to George Jones tribute concert

George Strait, Miranda Lambert, and Blake Shelton are among the latest additions to this fall's George Jones tribute concert. 

Eric Church, Reba McEntire, and Alabama have also signed on for the all-star event.  They're part of a hefty lineup that also features Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, the Oak Ridge Boys, Travis Tritt, and many others. 

Jones' widow, Nancy, says she's "thrilled and honored that so many of George's friends" will be taking part in the special show. 

The concert is set for Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on November 22nd - the date Jones was scheduled to give his last performance in Nashville.  

The Country Music Hall of Famer had planned to wrap up his career this year, and was two months into his farewell tour when he passed away in April at the age of 81.
