CMA Country Christmas [2], hosted by Jennifer Nettles [3], will air December 2 at 9/8c on ABC. The two-hour Christmas special features some of country’s biggest stars performing holiday favorites and sharing their favorite Christmas memories. It will tape in front of a live audience on Friday, November 8 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Artists scheduled to perform include Jennifer, Trace Adkins [4], Luke Bryan [5], Sheryl Crow [6], Lucy Hale, Jake Owen [7], Kellie Pickler [8], Rascal Flatts [9], Darius Rucker [10], and Michael W. Smith. Additionally, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson has been added as a performer. The Robertson family will also participate in a fireside chat.

CMA Country Christmas has become a welcome family tradition – not just for Country fans, but anyone who enjoys holiday standards performed by amazing vocalists in a classic variety show setting,” CMA Board President Ed Hardy said.

For the second year, audience members are 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 to collect the toys, which will later be distributed to homeless families this holiday season. You do not need a ticket to drop off a toy. In 2012, the group collected more than 5,000 toys.

Tickets for CMA Country Christmas are on sale now and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com [11], by calling (800) 745-3000 or in person at the Bridgestone Arena Box Office. For updates and information visit CMAchristmas.com. [2]
