CMA Country Christmas 2016 Performers Lineup

CMA Country Christmas 2016 Performers Lineup

The 2016 CMA Country Christmas special on ABC airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT, with Jennifer Nettles as the host once again. In addition to hosting, Nettles will also perform several times throughout the show. But, she isn't the only A-list country artist who has been part of the lineup this year. The event is not airing live, as it was taped at the beginning of the month in Nashville, so it's edited for a smooth delivery. This past October 2016, Nettles came out with her first holiday album "To Celebrate Christmas" and now she can showcase some of her latest music. For more information on each of the performers and the acts that are set to air, click through our performers' gallery. (ABC/Mark Levine)
