Carly Pearce Is The ‘Face of Christmas’ During Tonight’s ‘CMA Country Christmas’

Carly Pearce returns to host CMA Country Christmas for the second year in a row during tonight’s (Thursday, December 8th) ABC special, airing at 9 p.m. ET. She will also be performing during the show, which also boasts performances by Dan + Shay, Maren Morris, Scotty McCreery, and Old Dominion, to name a few.

Last year, Carly co-hosted CMA Country Christmas with Gabby Barrett, however this time around she’s flying solo. Carly tells us: “I love Christmas so much, so to be able to kind of be the face of this Christmas special on my own – I feel like last year was so helpful for me to kind of get my bearings of what it even is like to host something that big. And having Gabby Barrett there with me, we kinda were learning together, and so I feel really ready to be able to step out on my own and do this. And we have been working on the show and I think it’s gonna be really great, and also an opportunity, hopefully for country music fans who maybe you don’t know… Maybe they know my music but they don’t know me as a person, they can get to know me a little bit better.”

CMA Country Christmas is available for viewing on Hulu and Disney+ on Friday (December 9th).
