Recently crowned CCMA Entertainer of the Year Tenille Townes will make her acting debut in Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ Time For Him To Come Home For Christmas. Starring Holland Roden and Tyler Hynes, the new movie will premiere on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 9 p.m. CT as part of the network’s annual “Miracles of Christmas” programming event.
The movie is the fifth installment from executive producer and country superstar Blake Shelton. It’s based on the book Time For Me To Come Home by Dorothy Shackleford and Travis Thrasher, as well as Shelton’s song of the same name, which Townes performs during the film.
“Growing up in my house at Christmas time, we always had the Hallmark channel on. It always set the scene for the holiday season, and this is truly such a cool full circle,” shares Townes. “It was an honor to be a part of this and it was such a fun experience getting to say a few lines and put on a concert in a movie for the first time! The entire crew and cast were lovely to work with and I loved learning how it all comes together. Can’t wait to celebrate the holidays, being a part of this movie this year!”
The movie begins four days before Christmas when Elizabeth Athens (Roden) receives a voicemail where a man she doesn’t know makes a final plea to the love of his life for a second chance, asking to meet on Christmas Eve at the unnamed spot where they first met. As she’s swept into the search for the mystery caller, she’s reunited with her best friend Josh (Hynes), who is home for Christmas for the first time in years. On this special Christmas, a wrong number will put Elizabeth on an exciting journey of romance and adventure that will give her and three other lost souls a second chance at happiness.
Townes recently wrapped a European tour and her “Same Road Home Tour,” which travelled throughout the U.S. Her west coast “Side A + B Tour” will kick off in January. For a full list of dates, click here.
