On Nov. 30, a few of country music’s biggest stars will help usher in the holiday spirit with performances as part of Christmas In Rockefeller Center.

Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, and Trisha Yearwood will join Tony Bennett, Neil Diamond, Josh Groban, Tori Kelly, Sarah McLachlan, Jordan Smith and the Radio City Rockettes. NBC’s Today anchors Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Hoda Kotb will host the broadcast from New York City’s Rockefeller Center.

As part of the 84th annual tree lighting, the event will feature a 94-foot tall, 56-foot wide Norway spruce from Oneonta, New York. Approximately 90 years old, the tree weighs approximately 14 tons and will be decorated with more than 50,000 multi-colored LED lights.

The NBC show will air beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT. Prior to the primetime telecast, an additional live hour of the special will be broadcast on select NBC stations (7:00-8:00 p.m. ET).
