Nashville - Nov 16, 2020
With Christmas just around the corner, CMA has revealed performers for its annual holiday special, “CMA Country Christmas.” Kelsea Ballerini, GabbyBarrett, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Lady A, Little BigTown, Tim McGraw, Thomas Rhett, and DariusRucker with Lindsey Stirling will take the stage for a spirited night of festive classics.
Announced last week on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” husband and wife team Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins, a New York Times best-selling author, will make their TV hosting debut together during the 11th annual music celebration. “CMA Country Christmas” airs Monday, Nov. 30 (9:00-10:00 PM/ET) on ABC.

“The idea for this year’s show was to do a throwback of the great Christmas specials of the 1960s and 1970s,” says Robert Deaton, “CMA Country Christmas” Executive Producer. “Andy Williams, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra all had classic Christmas specials where the viewer was invited into the homes of the host to celebrate the holiday like a best friend coming to visit. That was what we wanted to create for this year’s show. Instead of a big flashy production, we took a page from those iconic specials to say, ‘Come relax, and let’s celebrate the holidays together.’”
Filmed for the first time without a live audience this past September, “CMA Country Christmas” is a production of the Country Music Association. Deaton is the Executive Producer and Writer. Paul Miller is the Director.
CMA partnered with Balsam Hill, stunningly realistic Christmas trees and beautifully-designed holiday décor, to decorate the “CMA Country Christmas” stage again this year.
