The premiere of two CMT holiday specials will bring more than a dozen country stars and friends to television on Wednesday night (Dec. 8). Both CMT Crossroads Christmas: Brett Young & Friends and A Tennessee Kind of Christmas promise a joyful collection of hit songs and classic Christmas performances.

The full setlist for both — revealed exclusively by Taste of Country — is below. Brett Young & Friends begins at 7 PM CT on Wednesday night and will be followed immediately by CMT's A Tennessee Kind of Christmas at 8 PM CT. The second program includes performances filmed at eight iconic locations in Nashville and surrounding areas, from the venerable RCA Studio B to Santa's Pub, a proudly blue-collar beer bar known for its karaoke and charismatic proprietor.

Brett Young, who released the Brett Young & Friends Sing the Christmas Classics album earlier this holiday season, will be joined by many of his friends from that project during the CMT Crossroads variation. Darius Rucker, Colbie Caillat, Maddie & Tae and Chris Tomlin are three, but for the CMT special, others like good friend Gavin DeGraw and Boyz II Men will be by his side.

The second special has a little more of a traditional country feel, with Billy Ray Cyrus, Wynonna Judd, Tracy Lawrence and Clay Walker leading a stacked list of artists and songs.

Look for encore showings of both programs on CMT through Christmas week, Dec 20-25.
