Jennifer Nettles will return for the second year in a row as the host of the 2011 CMA Country Christmas special on ABC. The filming of the special is one day after the CMA Awards in Nashville on November 10th, with the special airing on December 1st from 9 to 11 pm EST on ABC.
The two-hour television special will feature performances from not-yet-announced top country artists of the year. The artists will also share special holiday memories and wishes during the airing.
“The recurring themes you find in Country Music are the foundation of what makes the holidays so meaningful – the comfort of home, family, and friends,” said CMA Chief Executive Officer Steve Moore. “‘CMA Country Christmas,’ will be wrapped in those traditions.”
