Jennifer Nettles and candy cane menChristmas hit Nashville in a big way this week, and not because any local retailers moved their Black Friday sales up even more than they've been pushed forward in the rest of the country.
No, it was a return of country-palooza, aka the second annual CMA Christmas special. With a lot of the staging and stars still upright in the Bridgestone Arena after the live telecast of the CMA Awards the night before, it makes sense to make additional use of those resources and knock off a two-hour holiday extravaganza—which ABC will air Dec. 1.
We know who wasn't out late partying the night before: everyone who showed up at the arena and provided air-tight harmonies or slick guitar licks on Christmas chestnuts... including Sugarland (with Jennifer Nettles repeating her hosting stint from last year), Keith Urban, Faith Hill, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Martina McBride, Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Brian Setzer, Brad Paisley, and Miss Piggy.
