Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles has been tapped to once again host the second annual CMA Country Christmas holiday special.
The show will be taped in front of a live audience on Thursday, November 10 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, just one day after the Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood hosted 45th Annual CMA Music Awards are broadcasted live.
Speaking about the honor of hosting the first two annual runs of the Christmas special Jennifer said:
“I love holiday traditions and am so excited to add hosting ‘CMA Country Christmas’ to my new list of traditions now!” while she went on to add, “I’m gonna have to up my game this second time around, so I’m putting Brad and Carrie on speed dial for hosting emergency consulting services!”
CMA Chief Executive Officer also expressed his happiness that Nettles would return to host:
“We are excited to welcome Jennifer back as host for ‘CMA Country Christmas’ again this year,” who added, “In addition to her vast musical talent, Jennifer is also a charming and engaging television personality. We know our fans and viewers will be excited to watch Jennifer host our holiday special again this year.”
CMA Country Christmas will air on ABC during the holiday season and CMA is expected to announce airdates and ticket sales in the near future.
