Lady Antebellum's Dave and Charles Added to ACM Honors Lineup; Chris Young to Salute George Jones

ACMLady Antebellum's Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley have been added to the performers lineup for the 7th Annual ACM Honors coming up Tuesday night at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. They join previously announced performers Thompson Square, Vince Gill, Chris Young, Emmylou Harris and American Idol finalist Kree Harrison. David Nail, Darius Rucker and Steve Wariner will be there to serve as presenters, and Dierks Bentley returns for his second turn as host.

Chris Young has been tapped to perform a medley in honor of George Jones, who passed away earlier this year. The show's producer let him pick whatever Jones songs he wanted to sing.

Says Chris, "I'm doing, like, 'Window Up Above' and stuff that's, like, really random, which is cool. I get to do some cool George Jones stuff."

This year's ACM Honors also recognizes Jason Aldean with the Crystal Milestone Award. Blake Shelton will get the Gene Weed Special Achievement Honor, and Lady Antebellum's overseas touring success will be recognized with the Jim Reeves International Award. The Judds and the late Keith Whitley will be honored with the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award.
