2023 CMA Country Christmas Hosts
It’s that time of the year to snuggle under blankets to watch Christmas movies or sing along to your favorite Christmas songs. The Country Music Association (CMA) started gathering country singers together for a television special fourteen years ago.
Carly Pearce hosted and performed at the event last year. Other performers included Dan + Shay, Scotty McCreery, Maren Morris, and The War And Treaty.
The tradition continues in 2023.
Trisha Yearwood and Amy Grant will serve as hosts this year. They will also perform during the show. Who else will take the stage?
The War And The Treaty return to perform again this year. Fresh off winning Entertainer of the Year at the CMAs, Lainey Wilson joins the 2023 CMA Country Christmas lineup.
Other performers include Jon Pardi, Ashley McBryde, Jordan Davis, and Lady A.
According to Taste of Country, Christian rock artist Zach Williams will perform with Lainey Wilson.
CMA Country Christmas airs on Thursday, December 14 at 8 PM Eastern on ABC. You can stream it the next day on Disney+ or Hulu.
