Jennifer Nettles to Return as Host of ‘CMA Country Christmas’
The country entertainer has been a delightfully warm host over the past seven years and with the release of her Christmas album, To Celebrate Christmas, Nettles definitely knows how to get into the holiday spirit to celebrate one of the happiest and most festive times of the year.
“The taping of ‘CMA Country Christmas’ has become a treasured holiday tradition for Nashville families,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “And watching ‘CMA Country Christmas’ on ABC is equally important as generations gather to celebrate the season.”
While CMA has yet to announce who will be performing at the annual yuletide concert, Nettles and Co. will surely bring such warm cheer to the winter celebration at the iconic country music venue. The taping of the show will be staged in front of a live audience on Tuesday, November 8. No doubt the night will be filled with jolly good fun for the anticipation of the grand winter holiday.
Another magical part of the show includes a toy drive that CMA puts on to give children in need a little special present for when Christmas arises and spreads that joy during the best time of the year.
CMA Country Christmas will air on Monday, November 28, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
