CMA Country Christmas Reveals Full Cast & Setlist

One of our favorite holiday traditions returns next week! CMA Country Christmas airs for its thirteenth year, hosted by Carly Pearce and featuring a star-studded performance lineup. It will feature a mix of seasonal classics and original songs celebrating the joy of the holidays.

CMA just announced the holiday special's full setlist! It will include performances by Steven Curtis Chapman (“Precious Promise”), Dan + Shay (“Officially Christmas” and “Holiday Party”), Scotty McCreery (“Holly Jolly Christmas”), Maren Morris (“Merry Christmas Baby”), Old Dominion (“What Christmas Means To Me”), Molly Tuttle and Pearce (Bluegrass Medley – “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Let It Snow,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “Christmas Time’s A-Comin’”), and The War And Treaty (“O Holy Night”). Of course, veteran host Carly Pearce will bless us with her angelic vocals too, covering "Here Comes Santa Claus" and "Man With The Bag."

Executive producer Robert Deaton, director Milton Sneed, and writer Jon Macks help to make this memorable event possible. Sponsor Balsam Hill plays a vital role in the stage's decoration, contributing their beautifully realistic artificial Christmas trees and holiday décor.

Taped from Nashville’s Steel Mill, ABC will broadcast CMA Country Christmas on December 8th, at 9PM EST. Fans can also watch it the next day on Hulu or Disney+. We're so excited about the new additions to the lineup! This news makes us even more excited for a night of country music and Christmas cheer.
