The synopsis for tonight’s movie reads: “Two rival musicians, Lindsay (Marla Sokoloff) and Wes (Rob Mayes), who perform in a dueling piano show, suddenly find themselves without a gig on Christmas Eve and decide to road trip to their neighboring hometowns together. During the drive, the mismatched pair find themselves surrounded by Santa conventioneers, saving a Christmas nativity play, performing onstage in Nashville with music royalty (Marie Osmond), and braving a massive snowstorm which just may lead them to making sweet music together. The Road Home for Christmas is produced by Hybrid, LLC. Jeff Schenck serves as executive producer.”
