Rascal Flatts, which includes Picher-bred guitarist Joe Don Rooney, will be among the performers on this year’s “CMA Country Christmas,” airing from 8 to 10 tonight on the ABC Television Network.
The special, hosted for the fourth time by Jennifer Nettles, is a celebration of the season featuring country’s top stars and non-format favorites performing holiday songs and sharing their personal holiday traditions and memories.
The star-studded holiday lineup also includes Hunter Hayes, Trace Adkins, Mary J. Blige, Luke Bryan, Sheryl Crow, Lucy Hale, Lady Antebellum, Nettles, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts, “Duck Dynasty’s” Willie Robertson, Darius Rucker, Michael W. Smith, and beloved Peanuts characters Charlie Brown, Lucy and Linus van Pelt, and Snoopy.
To get into the holiday spirit, Hayes has helped CMA create an interactive Christmas Q&A where fans can guess Hunter’s answers to questions such as “Frosty or Rudolph?” and “Wrapping Paper or Gift Bags?” The fun, festive quiz can be found at CMAchristmas.com.
