CMA Country Christmas 2013, hosted by Jennifer Nettles, premieres tonight (December 2, 2013) on ABC. Enjoy the magic of the holiday season with your favorite country stars performing classic Christmas songs and sharing their holiday memories. Artists featured on the show include Trace Adkins, Luke Bryan, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Lucy Hale, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen, Jennifer Nettles, Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, and Michael W. Smith.
They say it begins with a song. For Jennifer Nettles, it began with a phone call. Rick Rubin had long been at the top of the singer’s wish list of producers, but it wasn’t until her manager, Gail Gellman, suggested she make the call that Nettles picked up the phone. Best known for her front-and-center work with the duo Sugarland, Nettles had been quietly preparing for three years to cut her own album, writing songs she believed took her to a whole new level of artistry.
George Strait’s final concert will be a Texas-sized celebration on June 7, 2014 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
