LIVE STREAM: CMA Country Christmas!
The 2014 “CMA Country Christmas” airs on ABC on Monday. Gossip Cop has a live stream below!
The annual holiday special, which was filmed last month, features some of the biggest country stars celebrating the Christmas season with special performances, including one-of-a-kind duets. Jennifer Nettles hosts, and her collaboration with Idina Menzel on “Let It Go” from Frozen is sure to be a highlight (see photo right ). Menzel tweeted about the duet, “Can’t wait for you to see #CMAChristmas! @jennifernettles is the most lovely gorgeous talented host. #ilovenashville!”
While Nettles has been a “CMA Country Christmas” staple since its inception in 2010, she will be joined this time around by plenty more new and old favorites. The list includes Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rimes, Alan Jackson, Lucy Hale, Hunter Hayes, Sara Evans, Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, Dan & Shay, Brad Paisley, and Steven Tyler. Underwood and Paisley, of course, hosted the CMA Awards in early November.
The event also doubles as a charity function. Audience members who attended the taping at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville were encouraged to bring new toys to be donated to area children through the local non-profit group Generosity.
The “CMA Country Christmas” broadcast gets underway at 8 p.m. Eastern. Watch the live stream below!
