Every year, country fans look forward to the annual televised special CMA Country Christmas. The program features country artists from all eras, who all come together for the purpose of celebrating the Christmas season.
While fans seem to enjoy every airing of CMA Country Christmas, there was something special about this year’s show. The performances were some of the best we have ever seen, and included collaborations between major stars such as Reba McEntire and Little Big Town, and Alan Jackson and Chris Young. That’s not even counting the standout solo performances such as Luke Bryan‘s heavenly rendition of “O Holy Night!”
Viewers also seemed to get a kick out of watching McEntire as the host of the program. This marked her first year hosting the special, after Jennifer Nettles served as the host for all of the previous years.
Needless to say, everyone loved CMA Country Christmas so much this year that they were still buzzing about the special days after it aired. If you were one of those people who couldn’t stop talking about the show, then you may be happy to hear the news we have to share with you today!
