Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles will also host the yuletide celebration, returning for the second annual event. "I love holiday traditions and am so excited to add hosting 'CMA Country Christmas' to my new list of traditions now," Jennifer reports. "I'm gonna have to up my game this second time around, so I'm putting [CMA Awards co-hosts] Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood on speed dial for hosting emergency consulting."

The concert will be taped in front of a live audience at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 10. Tickets are set at $25 for upper-level general admission seating, and $50 for club-level general admission. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
