We can’t think of a better way to spend the holiday season than with a full lineup of country’s hottest stars, and on December 1, we’ll have the pleasure of inviting Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Sugarland, Brad Paisley and more into our homes via our television screens. The ‘CMA Country Christmas’ event will air on ABC at 8PM ET that evening, but will be recorded live from Nashville a few weeks earlier.

‘CMA Country Christmas’ will house two hours of jam-packed performances from big names like Rascal Flatts, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Vince Gill, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban and Little Big Town, among others. The event will be hosted by Sugarland’s front lady Jennifer Nettles, and the artists will share their holiday traditions in between performing Christmas songs.

While the holiday concert will be a television special for most of us, tickets are available for those who wish to attend. The Christmas show will tape at the Bridgestone Arena on November 10, one night following the 2011 CMA Awards on November 9.
