I’m going on record that this will be the biggest and best CMA Country Christmas yet! Not only was the set amazing, and obviously Jennifer Nettles did a fantastic job hosting and performing, but the goose-bump moments were a plenty. Highlights of night included Carrie Underwood and Michael W. Smith performing “All is Well,” LeAnn Rimes absolutely amazing performance of “Carol of the Bells,” Idena Menzel and Jennifer Nettles performance of the ‘Frozen’ classic “Let it Go” and Little Big Town and Michael W. Smith performance of “Silent Night.”

Some of the most powerful and emotionally moving voices in music come together to celebrate the holidays on “CMA Country Christmas,” which tapes in front of a live audience Friday, Nov. 7 (7:30 PM/CT), at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The special, which features Jennifer Nettles hosting for the fifth year, airs this holiday season on ABC.

“After being the host of ‘CMA Country Christmas,’ for five years now, it is hard to pick one thing I love about it. There are so many fun moments,” Nettles said. “Whether it is the performances or duets, getting to perform Christmas songs with great artists is really fun for me. It’s really a fun show all around.”

Artists scheduled to perform and celebrate the season include Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Sara Evans, Lucy Hale, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Idina Menzel, Nettles, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, and Carrie Underwood.

“The taping for ‘CMA Country Christmas’ is a jump-start for the holiday season and has become a family tradition for many Nashville residents,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “Adding to the celebration is our annual toy drive, which provides new toys for children in need, shining a spotlight on a worthy endeavor in a way that reflects the values and giving nature of our artists, the industry, and this city.”

For the third year, audience members are being encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the taping to help make the holidays brighter for Nashville area children. The Nashville-based non-profit group Generosity will have volunteers on site with specially marked bins to collect toys beginning at 5:00 PM/CT on Nov. 7. In 2013, the group collected more than 5,000 toys.

“Our artist community is extremely generous and so are our fans,” Trahern said. “It is our goal to make sure no child goes without a present this Christmas and we are grateful to our partners at Generosity for helping to make this a dream come true for children in Nashville.”

Tickets for “CMA Country Christmas” are on sale now and can be purchased at CMAChristmas.com; by calling (800) 745-3000; or in person at the Bridgestone Arena Box Office, located at 501 Broadway (corner of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, Nashville). Tickets for “CMA Country Christmas” are $25 for Upper-Level seating and $50 for Lower- and Club-Level seating. Ticket prices include tax, but exclude applicable service fees.

Motley Crue And Country Music Come Together In “Nashville Outlaws”

Motley

Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue believes you can have country artists covering their songs because the songs can be stripped down easily. Sixx says most of the songs were written on acoustic guitar and a good song will stand up to interpretation.

“Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue” features acts like Justin Moore, Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts and LeAnn Rimes remaking Motley Crue songs.

Moore says he was attracted to “Home Sweet Home” because it reminded him of his song, “Small Town USA.” He says he never would have thought that something like this would ever come to him, but he had fun with it.

“Nashville Outlaws” is out this week.
