‘Holiday Homecoming With Jewel’ To Air On Christmas Day

Jewel and her Alaskan Kilcher family will be center of a Christmas day (Dec. 25) holiday special airing at 1 p.m. CT on CBS-TV.

Holiday Homecoming With Jewel was recorded at Nashville’s Fontanel Mansion and is one of the first projects the singer has undertaken since finding new management with Marc Oswald.

The special will feature music from Jewel as well as American Idol finalist Geneva Rose Mitchell with stories, and holiday traditions.

“Growing up as a child in Homer Alaska a friend and I had a dream that we would be successful singer songwriters and go to Nashville someday,” read a Facebook post by Atz Kilcher, Jewel’s father. “Well about half a century later Bonnie and I had the pleasure of spending some time with my old friend Tim Mitchell. We are both here in Nashville now because of the great success of our daughters. I’m filming a Christmas special show with my daughter and family. Tim is here to watch his daughter, American Idol finalist Geneva Rose Mitchell, perform. Life is good.”

In addition to being part of Discovery’s popular Alaska: The Last Frontier, the elder Kilcher has recorded several albums, including his latest with his wife Bonnie, titled Good Old-Fashioned Ways.

Jewel has released two Christmas albums, most recently Let It Snow: A Holiday Collection was released in 2013.
