Dan + Shay, Scotty McCreery, Maren Morris, Old Dominion and other artists are coming to get “for a magical night of holiday tunes,” the Country Music Association announced on Wednesday (November 16). CMA Country Christmas is set to return next month with host Carly Pearce.
The 13th annual holiday television special will feature performances by Dan + Shay, McCreery, Morris, Old Dominion, Pearce, Steven Curtis Chapman, Molly Tuttle, and The War And Treaty. CMA Country Christmas is set to air on ABC on Thursday, December 8 at 9 p.m. ET. The one-hour special will be available the following day on Hulu and Disney+, according to the association’s announcement. Pearce gushed that she’s “SO excited & honored to be your host again this year,” as she shared details of the upcoming holiday special on her social media channels on Wednesday.
Pearce hosted the holiday special for the first time last year, along with “The Good Ones” artist Gabby Barrett. The CMA Country Christmas special is one of many ways country fans can listen to holiday music performed by their favorite artists. Many have begun to release festive albums and singles to mark the start of the holiday season, including new Christmas music from Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, Thomas Rhett and CMA Country Christmas performers Dan + Shay, to name a few.
