Each year since 2010, country music stars perform holiday songs and share their favorite traditions and memories on CMA COUNTRY CHRISTMAS. The inaugural event, hosted by Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and broadcast by ABC as a 90-minute special, was taped after the 44th Annual CMA AWARDS on November 10, 2010 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, and featured performances by Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Reba, LeAnn Rimes, Darius Rucker, Sugarland and Kellie Pickler.
