Reba McEntire will be hosting the eighth annual CMA Country Christmas, taking over for Jennifer Nettles (who’s hosted for the last seven years).

The two-hour holiday program will air on ABC Nov. 27 and will be taped at the Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House on Nov. 14.

Reba told Nash Country Daily:

“Christmas is such a special time. It reminds me of growing up in Oklahoma and singing carols with my family. I’m just tickled to join a group of some of my best country buddies onstage to celebrate the holiday season. This is where my love of music began.”

This year’s lineup is star-studded, featuring Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, CB30, Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Dustin Lynch, CeCe Winans, Trisha Yearwood, and Chris Young.
