Brad Paisley + Steven Tyler to Perform at CMA Country Christmas
In addition, Alan Jackson has also been added to the lengthy list of performers, which already includes Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Sara Evans, Lucy Hale, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Idina Menzel, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith and Carrie Underwood. Jennifer Nettles will return once again to host the event.
“After being the host of CMA Country Christmas for five years now, it is hard to pick one thing I love about it,” Nettles says. “There are so many fun moments. Whether it is the performances or duets, getting to perform Christmas songs with such great artists is really fun for me. It’s really a fun show all around.”
CMA Country Christmas will tape live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 7. Audience members are encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy, which will be given to children in need in Music City.
“Our toy drive adds something special to the celebration, shining a spotlight on a worthy endeavor in a way that reflects the values and giving nature of our artists, the industry and this city,” says CMA CEO Sarah Trahern.
Tickets for the CMA Country Christmas are available for purchase here. CMA Country Christmas will air on ABC on Dec. 1.
