Christmas gatherings are usually centered around getting the family together, but even though some of his family will be there (whether related by blood, marriage, or business arrangement), Blake Shelton is issuing something of a disclaimer with the title he’s chosen for his his upcoming network TV special.

“It’s just me … It’s called ‘Not So Family Christmas,’ for God’s sake,” Blake joked with reporters backstage at last night’s CMA Awards. The musical and no doubt comedic special will air Dec. 3 on NBC.

Blake, who is one of the coaches on “The Voice,” (also an NBC program), will offer up selections from his recently-released album, Cheers, It’s Christmas. In keeping with the “family” part of the special, like the album, it will feature a performance from Blake’s mom, Dorothy Shackleford, and will also welcome Kelly Clarkson (who dates Blake’s manager, Brandon Blackstock).

Also featured will be Reba McEntire, Blake’s fellow Okie, who is married to Narvel Blackstock, which, of course, makes her Brandon’s step-mom. Mrs. Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, will also appear on the special.

The Sheltons are basking in the glow of their many wins during last night’s CMA Awards. In addition to having co-written the CMA Song of the Year, “Over You,” together, Miranda once again took the award for CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, while Blake three-peated in the Male Vocalist category as well. He’s also now the CMA Entertainer of the Year. Something tells us Christmas will be even more special at their house this year!
