With the holiday season upon us, Monday, December 10 marks the ninth annual airing of the CMA Country Christmas special. Once again, the iconic Reba McEntire will be hosting the celebration on ABC — marking her second year as a host and third time as a performer — with music acts like Tony Bennett, Amy Grant, Martina McBride, and Brad Paisley stepping on stage throughout the show.
“I’ve always cherished celebrating Christmas alongside family and friends, taking time to reflect on the season,” said Reba in a press release from the Country Music Association. “I’m so excited CMA invited me back to host their show and am looking forward to some fun singing carols with my friends.”
The country music holiday celebration is part of the ABC network’s “25 Days of Christmas” programming.
