Some of country music’s hottest stars gathered at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for the taping of CMA Country Christmas on Thursday night (11/11). The star-studded cast included Reba McEntire, LeAnn Rimes, Martina McBride, Darius Rucker, Little Big Town, Sugarland, Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Kellie Pickler and it was hosted by Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles. We attended the taping and it’s a must-see show so make sure to watch on Monday, Nov. 29 (9:30 – 11:00 PM / ET) on ABC.
