I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO EXCITED ABOUT ANYTHING IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! I have worked in the country music world since I was 8 years old, and I've never been to Nashville, Tennessee. I know, right? Well that's all about to change. My cousin and I will be in the audience for the taping of the CMA Country Christmas Special, which will air on TV sometime in December. OH MY GOD!!! They're taping it at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Saturday, November 3rd, which is my birthday! Happy Birthday to me!!!! We're just taking a quick weekend trip, but hopefully we'll be able to catch a tour of the Church of Country Music, the Grand Ole Opry...and I promise that if we do, I will be a bawling mess! Anyway, they've finally announced the line-up for this year's CMA Country Christmas, which will tape just a couple of days after the CMA Awards, so you know there's gonna be star power there!
The line-up includes Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Scotty McCreery, The Band Perry, Keith Urban, pop star Colbie Caillat, R&B singer John Legend, Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins, and of course Jennifer Nettles, who will host the show. Keep checking back for info on when the show will air on TV. If you missed last year's show, here's the whole thing! ~ Jenn
