Reba McEntire will be front and center when she hosts “CMA Country Christmas” for the first time Monday, Nov. 27, at 8p.m. ET on ABC. The legendary redhead will be taking the hosting duties from Jennifer Nettles, who hosted the show for the past seven years.

The CMA has announced the star-studded line up for the festive show, held at the Grand Ole Opry House. Performers include Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, CB30, Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Dustin Lynch, CeCe Winans, Trisha Yearwood and Chris Young to bring a little Christmas cheer.

Aside from hosting duties, Reba will also perform a song from her Christmas album, My Kind of Christmas. The album, a re-release, will contain brand new songs featuring Darius Rucker, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Lauren Daigle, Trisha Yearwood and Kelly Clarkson.

According to the CMA, the new show “will have a new look and feel this year, making Reba’s first year as host a can’t-miss Country Music event.”

Just to get you in the mood for Christmas, here is Kelsea Ballerini performing “The Christmas Song” at 2016’s “CMA Country Christmas.” Oh and as a friendly reminder, there are only 47 shopping days left until Christmas. Ho! Ho! Ho!
