Following Jennifer Nettles' seven-year streak as host of CMA Country Christmas, the one-and-only Reba McEntire is taking over and will charm the audience as this year's host.
Reba McEntire hosts the 2017 CMA Country Christmas
In a news article on her website, McEntire shares her excitement for the holiday season and show, “Christmas is such a special time. It reminds me of growing up in Oklahoma and singing carols with my family. I'm just tickled to join a group of some of my best country buddies onstage to celebrate the holiday season. This is where my love of music began."
The special event is being taped at The Grand Ole Opry on November 14 and is set to air on ABC on November 27 at 7 pm CT. Tune-in to catch performances by McEntire and other country stars singing popular Christmas classics. The full lineup has yet to be released, but previous performers include Kelly Clarkson, Kelsea Ballerini, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and more.
