The holidays are quickly approaching -- and so is the 2020 CMA Country Christmas special! Ahead of the big night on Monday, November 30, the Country Music Association has shared with fans what they can expect from the special, sure to be packed full of holiday cheer!
Superstar Thomas Rhett will be hosting the night alongside his wife, Lauren Akins, and will perform the classic "Christmas in the Country," while his contemporaries Dan + Shay, FGL, LBT, Kelsea Ballerini, Lady A, Gabby Barrett, Tim McGraw, and Darius Rucker are all set to take part in the season's good tidings.
"The idea for this year's show was to do a throwback of the great Christmas specials of the 1960s and 1970s," the show's executive producer Robert Deaton said in a statement. "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.'"
Here's the full list of performers and the songs they'll sing:
Kelsea Ballerini – “Santa Baby”
Gabby Barrett – “The First Noel”
Lady A – “Wonderful Christmastime” and “Little Saint Nick”
Little Big Town – “Christmas Time Is Here”
Tim McGraw – “It Wasn’t His Child”
Darius Rucker with Lindsey Stirling – “What Child Is This?"
Dan + Shay – “Christmas Isn’t Christmas"
Florida Georgia Line – “Lit This Year”
Thomas Rhett – “Christmas In The Country”
