Fans will soon be able to ring in the holiday season with country music’s hottest stars on CMA Country Christmas.

ABC just announced that the popular Christmas program will air Tuesday, December 3 at 9/8c.

Hosted by Trisha Yearwood, this year’s CMA Country Christmas special will include performances by Kristin Chenoweth, for KING & COUNTRY, Chris Janson, Tori Kelly, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Runaway June, CeCe Winans, Brett Young and Chris Young.

“Music, memories and enjoying the season with loved ones are what make Christmastime so special,” says Yearwood, who will also perform during the show. “Hosting ‘CMA Country Christmas’ is an opportunity to share joy and celebrate the holidays with friends and family everywhere.”

The special, now in its tenth year, continues to be one of the top-rated holiday programs on television.

CMA Country Christmas will air the same night as Brad Paisley’s star-studded variety show, Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special.
