What happened last year?

Things did not go smoothy. The Oscars had to apologise after picturing someone who was still alive in their In Memoriam montage, Nicole Kidman showcased the world’s weirdest clapping, and, of course, the Best Picture Oscar (traditionally the biggest award of the night) was mistakenly given to La La Land rather than the actual winner, Moonlight.

2017 CMA Country Christmas

With a large and star-studded group of performers, the CMA Country Christmas event is a show you don’t want to miss. Find out where you can watch the show online.

Hosted by country music legend Reba McEntire, the program will air on ABC at 8:00 pm ET. The annual Country Music Association (CMA) Country Christmas began in 2010.

The program will be slightly different this year. Up to this point, the show has been hosted each year by Jennifer Nettles, one half of the duo Sugarland. However, she is stepping away this year, and will be replaced by Reba McEntire. The press release for the event has made a point to mention the change, stating that, “The show will have a new look and feel this year, making Reba’s first year as host a can’t-miss country music event.” While this will be a new gig for Reba, she is no stranger to hosting events. She has hosted or co-hosted 19 ACM awards shows over the years.

McEntire will also perform a song off her new album, My Kind of Christmas. A complete list of the performers can be found HERE. In the past the featured artists have included traditional country music staples like Brad Paisley, Trisha Yearwood, and Rascal Flatts. Also, some performers necessarily considered part of the country music scene like Kelly Clarkson have appeared in the event.
