“Christmas is such a special time. It reminds me of growing up in Oklahoma and singing carols with my family," said McEntire. “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."

“Reba epitomizes Country and the cheer of the holiday
season," said CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern. “She's also the most
nominated female in CMA Awards history, so the fit couldn't be more perfect."
