CMA Country Christmas

Thursday night we dressed up in red and green and went downtown to be a part of the live audience for the taping of CMA's Country Christmas.  Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland was host for a night when various country stars got together to sing Christmas songs and film the holiday special.  Tickets were only available from CMA members so we were lucky enough to be invited by friends with connections.  It was a very unique experience to get a behind-the-scenes look at a TV filming and, of course, awesome to see some of our favorite singers performing carols.  There were quite a few "re-takes" so we got to see many of the performances twice.  The atmosphere was much more laid back than your typical concert and many of the stars would casually address the audience when not filming.  It was a really neat experience and I can't wait to watch the show when it airs to see how it all comes together!  If you like Christmas songs as much as I do, you should check it out too!

Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow, Reba, Martina McBride, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, Little Big Town, LeAnn Rimes, Rascal Flatts

Awesome set with lots of fake snow!
 The special will air Monday, November 29, 9:30-11:00 pm ET on ABC.
