Many of these entertainers will be included in this year’s CMA Country Christmas, a two-hour special slated to air Monday, Nov. 28 on ABC. Nettles will host for a seventh year.

The lineup includes Eldredge, Grant, Musgraves, Nettles, Rascal Flatts, Yearwood and Young, as well as Joey Alexander, Kelsea Ballerini, Kelly Clarkson, Andra Day, Sarah McLachlan, Idina Menzel, Brad Paisley, and Jordan Smith.

CMA Country Christmas is scheduled to be taped at the Grand Ole Opry House on Tuesday, Nov. 8 (7:00 PM/CT; doors open from 5:30-6:30 PM/CT).

A popular feature of the CMA Country Christmas taping is a toy drive. Audience members are invited to bring an unwrapped toy for deserving children in need throughout Middle Tennessee. In 2015, through a partnership with ABC Television Network and the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, CMA collected more than 5,000 unwrapped gifts.
