Jennifer Nettles Will Host CMA Country Christmas

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles will return as the host of an upcoming ABC special, CMA Country Christmas, to be taped in Nashville on Nov. 10. Nettles hosted the first special in 2010, as well. The special will be taped at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville one day after the CMA Awards. Additional performers, television air date and ticket information will be announced later. “I love holiday traditions and am so excited to add hosting CMA Country Christmas to my new list of traditions now,” Nettles said. “I’m gonna have to up my game this second time around, so I’m putting Brad [Paisley] and Carrie [Underwood] on speed dial for hosting emergency consulting services!”
