You can expect plenty of holiday collaborations when CMA Country Christmas premieres later this month on ABC.
Host Jennifer Nettles teams up with both R&B phenomenon Andra Day and the actress who brought Elsa to life in Frozen, Idina Menzel, to deliver two songs from her new yuletide album, To Celebrate Christmas. Jennifer and Trisha Yearwood also assist legend Loretta Lynn on an appropriately-titled tune she wrote half a century ago, “Country Christmas.”
13-year-old jazz piano prodigy Joey Alexander accompanies Kelsea Ballerini on a new rendition of “My Favorite Things,” which has just been released to radio in time for the holidays. Brad Paisley flew back to town to join Chris Young for their version of “The First Noel” from Chris’ new project, It Must Be Christmas.
That’s just a taste of the star power in the twq-hour special, taped earlier this month at the Grand Ole Opry House. It premieres Monday, November 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
