Jennifer Nettles Finishes 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ Special With Two Carols

If you can’t pick your favorite holiday carol, why not pick two? Jennifer Nettles finished out the 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special with a medley of ‘Christmas Time Is Here’ and ‘Winter Wonderland.’

If she was tired from her hosting duties and all of her performances, Nettles didn’t show it. Her spunky personality consistently carried her through her delivery, along with her strong vocals.

The new mama was ravishing in a silvery dress adorned with thousands of sequins, her hair pulled up in an elegant french twist. She sang the first couple verses of ‘Christmas Time Is Here,’ with the Charlie Brown cast was projected behind her.

“Thank you for being a part of CMA Country Christmas everybody!” Nettles yelled to viewers. She then invited Mary J. Blige to join her for ‘Winter Wonderland,’ and the Peanuts characters walked up and down the aisles, dancing along to the band. Linus van Pelt made an appearance (complete with his trusted blanket), as did Snoopy, Charlie Brown and other well-loved classics.

Soon, all of the 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ performers joined Nettles and Blige onstage and joined in for a rousing finale, turning the Bridgestone Arena into a truly country wonderland. As the Peanuts cast mingled and the singers belted out the holiday lyrics, snow began falling softly from the rafters, and the crowd took to their feet for a much-deserved standing ovation.
