After seven years with Jennifer Nettles as the emcee, CMA Country Christmas will turn to Reba McEntire to host its eight annual showcase. The two-hour holiday music celebration, which will be taped at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House on Nov. 14, will air on ABC on Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. CT.
“Christmas is such a special time,” said Reba. “It reminds me of growing up in Oklahoma and singing carols with my family. I’m just tickled to join a group of some of my best country buddies onstage to celebrate the holiday season. This is where my love of music began.”
The lineup of artists performing at this year’s shindig include Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, CB30, Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Dustin Lynch, CeCe Winans, Trisha Yearwood and Chris Young.
Tickets for the taping of CMA Country Christmas are sold out, but you can catch it on ABC on Nov. 27.
