Michael W. Smith to Appear on 'CMA Country Christmas'

Michael W. Smith and Martina McBride (ABC)
For those keeping score, Michael W. Smith will appear on the CMA Country Christmas special for the third time. Tonight, he will share the stage with Martina McBride singing “What Child is This,” a pairing that is featured on his Christmas album, Michael W. Smith & Friends: The Spirit of Christmas which was released last year. He is also scheduled to sing with LeAnn Rimes.

Last year, Smith paired up with Carrie Underwood (who stole the show) singing Smith’s “All is Well.” Smith is starting to become a regular staple of these specials who have broadened their musical scope to include acts, like Smith, who are not usually associated with country music and this year is no exception. This year the acapella group, Pentatonix and retro rock star, Brian Setzer join the line up.

Taped at the Grand Ole Opry House, the CMA Country Christmas special will once again be hosted by Jennifer Nettles with additional performances by Kelsea Ballerini, Dan + Shay, Mickey Guyton, Jewel, Charles Kelley, David Nail, Darius Rucker, Brian Setzer and Lindsey Stirling. The special airs at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. If you miss tonight's airing, chances are that you'll be able to catch it again before the holiday season is over.
