YOUR FAVORITE CMT SHOWS ARE ON PARAMOUNT+

Watch: Tenille Townes, Priscilla Block, Caitlyn Smith and Brittney Spencer Collaborate on "Silent Night" for "CMT Campfire Sessions"

The Christmas episode of "CMT Campfire Sessions" will air 9 p.m. ET on December 6 on CMT.

Four of CMT's favorite Next Women of Country grabbed their guitars and gathered around a campfire recently for a Christmas episode of "CMT Campfire Sessions."

Tenille Townes, Priscilla Block, Caitlyn Smith and Brittney Spencer met at a house outside of Nashville and let the TV cameras fade into the background as they shared their favorite Christmas traditions, what's on their Christmas lists and their favorite holiday songs.

"We were just laughing around in a campfire," Townes explained. "It was freezing cold, which I think all added to the experience. It felt more like home to me and the way that we gather around a campfire. I just felt very present in the music. It felt like I just got to hear my friends sing, and I loved it."

The women sang a mix of traditional carols and original Christmas songs. Townes opened with "Christmas Cards," which she wrote with Brandy Clark and Luke Dick.

"It's a song about how you lose touch with people that come in and out of different seasons in your life, but you kind of hear from them over the holidays and get a little card in the mail," she said. "I always love sending out Christmas cards, too."

Townes described it as sentimental and nostalgic and said she also sang a jazzy version of "The Christmas Song" and that all the women came together for "Silent Night."

"It was one of those things that got sent out just before the shoot," she said. "It was like, 'Hey, have "Silent Night" in your back pocket, and we'll try singing it all together.'"

Townes said the women ran through the song one time before filming and that everyone stopped playing at the same moment to sing the last few lines a cappella.

"It was so beautiful to hear all the different harmonies in that moment," she said. "So that was my favorite part of the whole round was singing together with everybody."

The Christmas episode of "CMT Campfire Sessions" will air 9 p.m. ET on December 6 on CMT.
