Jennifer Nettles Returns to Host CMA Country Christmas
Christmas might still be a few months away, but country stars are already getting in the holiday spirit. The line-up for the fourth annual CMA Country Christmas has been announced, and it seems the night will showcase some of this year's biggest artists.
Jennifer Nettles will once again host the two-hour, star-studded event, which will include performances by Luke Bryan, Trace Adkins, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Sheryl Crow, Lucy Hale and Michael W. Smith.
Audience members are invited to bring an unwrapped toy to help make the holiday season a little brighter for families in need. “We are hoping that our audience will get into the spirit of the season by bringing a toy for donation,” Ed Hardy, President of the CMA Board of Directors, explains. “We are honored to utilize the Christmas special taping as an opportunity to shine a light on such a worthy endeavor. It is a perfect opportunity to give back to the community and reflects the values and heart of our artists and the industry.”
The event will be taped at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 8, two days after the 47th Annual CMA Awards. Toy donations will begin at 1PM that day. A ticket is not needed to make a contribution. The show will air on ABC at a later date.
