Countdown To Christmas With The CMA

Celebrate the holiday season online where country artists share their favorite holiday memories at CMA Christmas and then tune in Monday, Nov. 29 when “CMA Country Christmas” airs on the ABC Television Network (9:30-11:00 PM/ET). Each day a new artist or celebrity will be featured in addition to exclusive behind-the-scenes stories and interviews at   

Some of the highlights include rare footage of a then, 12-year-old Brad Paisley strumming a guitar and singing the first song he ever composed, "Born on Christmas Day" before he performed an acoustic version of "What Child is This."

Blond-tressed vixen, Kellie Pickler in a red, satin gown that would have turned Mrs. Claus's cheeks crimson, sang "Santa Baby."

Little Big Town, performing a stunning version of "Go Tell It On The Mountain" as well as providing their signature harmonies to a Sugarland performance of "Winter Wonderland." 

Forget the sleigh, it was a guitar-driven cover of "Run, Run, Rudolph" with Sheryl Crow and Brad Paisley.

Pulling heartstrings on the homefront, Rascal Flatts included messages to our military heroes recorded at Fort Campbell Air Force base during their salute of "I'll Be Home for Christmas."

Martina McBride's soaring vocal on "O Holy Night."

A favorite among the children in the audience was Reba, surrounded by eight swooning Santas, singing "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."

Darius Rucker performing what is sure to become a holiday classic, "Candy Cane Christmas."

LeAnn Rimes' rollicking take on the Brenda Lee classic "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" complete with dancing sailors. 

And of course, the full cast finale of "Jingle Bell Rock."
