Don’t fret if you missed “CMA Country Christmas!” The Yuletide special will air again on Saturday, the 22nd of December! Since the first airing of the television special was so popular, it got itself an encore. The two-hour prime time annual holiday show is hosted by the wonderful Reba McEntire. Additionally, this marks her second year as host for the special, something she took over from Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, who had the post for seven years.

McEntire has expressed her excitement in one interview:

“I’ve always cherished celebrating Christmas alongside family and friends, taking time to reflect on the season. 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 special includes an array of spectacular performances, amazing songs, all for the celebration and propagation of holiday cheer. Furthermore, it features some of your favorite country stars!
