One present you can open up early is the K-LOVE Music City Christmas TV special airing tonight on the UP Network. Unlike some fluffy TV specials that air this time of year, this one skips all the “cute” banter or skits and focuses solely on the music. It’s sort of a music variety show for those who don’t like variety shows.

Hosted by former child star, Candace Cameron Bure (Full House) and taped before a live audience, the special is packed full of special guests singing new and classic holiday songs. Performances include:

  • “Jingle Bell Rock” by The Newsboys and For King and Country
  • “Just a Girl” by Brandon Heath
  • “O Holy Night” by Kari Jobe
  • “Silent Night” by Big Daddy Weave
  • “Jingle Bells” by Colton Dixon (American Idol finalist)
  • “The Heart of Christmas” by Matthew West
  • “Go Tell it on the Mountain” by David Crowder
  • “We Three Kings” by Tenth Avenue North and Moriah Peters
  • “It’s Christmas” by Mandisa
  • “Christmas this Year” by TobyMac

“As America’s Christmas Channel, we are thrilled to partner with K-LOVE, the top contemporary inspirational radio network, to bring this very special holiday evening to families coast-to-coast,” said Leslie Glenn Chesloff, executive vice president of programming, UP. "This is a unique opportunity to share a spectacular range of Christmas performances by a talented array of artists with a broad audience between the live telecast and broadcast.”

“We are excited that the very first “K-LOVE Music City Christmas” special will premiere on UP,” shared David Pierce, K-LOVE and Air1's Chief Creative Officer. “The network is the ideal partner to present this beautiful Christmas special that is filled with spirited musical performances and meaning.”

The “K-LOVE Music City Christmas” premieres on UP on Monday, December 9 at 8 p.m. with a repeat performance at 11:00 p.m. (EST).
