The Country Music Association is bringing together some bright music stars – including Oklahoma native Reba McEntire, who hails from Chockie, and trio Rascal Flatts, which features Joe Don Rooney of Picher – to celebrate the holiday season with a television special airing tonight.
Hosted by Jennifer Nettles of the duo Sugarland, “CMA Country Christmas” will air at 8:30 tonight on ABC. The 90-minute special was taped in front of a live audience at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., on Nov. 11, the day after the Country Music Association’s 44th Annual CMA Awards.
Reba, Rascal Flatts, Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, LeAnn Rimes, Darius Rucker and Sugarland will perform classic Christmas songs on the show. Joined by some of their family members, the stars also will share with fans their holiday traditions and memories.
