Are y’all ready for some Christmas music? You ought to be!
Holy smokes! ABC knows how to kick some Christmas butt. This year’s CMA Country Christmas has, quite possibly, the best line-up ever. Plus, it’s hosted by the very lovely (and very pregnant during filming) Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland.
Tonight’s show will be loaded to the brim with Christmas music. While we’re all in agreement that any Christmas music is excellent music, it can get even better if it’s performed by the right people. The CMA and ABC sure did lasso up all the right people too. We’re promised performances from Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, The Band Perry, Little Big Town and Keith Urban. Plus, there will be songs from country music’s long-time sweetheart, Martina McBride, and pop music’s beach girl, Colbie Caillat, as well as Katherine Jenkins and Scotty McCreery. Oh my! Add the smooth and soulful voice of the amazing John Legend. Sweet!
If that doesn’t get you excited, check out this awesome promo. Little Big Town’s sweet harmonies will give you chills.
Now are you ready for the show? Between A White House Christmas: First Families Remember and the CMA Country Christmas, if you don’t go to bed with numb cheeks from smiling so much, you need to rewatch them. This week’s Christmas Spirit is coming at us at full force, and we don’t even mind.
CMA Country Christmas‘s official website has a bunch more videos from this year’s special, as well as last year’s. Just to help get you in the mood, here’s another look at what might be in store this year:
One more great reason to tune in — it looks like Nettles will do a duet with John Legend. That performance no doubt heated up all of Nashville, where the special was filmed. When John Legend is involved, everything is sexier.
CMA Country Christmas, with special host Jennifer Nettles, airs tonight, Dec. 20, at 9/8c. Enjoy the show, y’all!
