After a legendary duet with Reba McEntire at the 51st annual CMA Awards (11/8), Black River Entertainment recording artist KELSEA BALLERINI will reunite with the Country icon during ABC’s CMA Country Christmas airing at 8/7c tonight.
Making spirits bright, the lively twosome will open the sparkling festivities with “Jingle Bells,” while Ballerini will also pour her heart into a romantic solo of “White Christmas” in front of a picturesque snow-kissed backdrop. The eighth annual two-hour holiday show was filmed from a sold-out Grand Ole Opry audience in Nashville.
Ballerini welcomed the holidays as the headlining entertainer for CBS’ The Thanksgiving Day Parade (11/23). In celebration of her acclaimed sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, she performed her chart-rising lead single, “Legends,” plus her anthemic title track.
Earlier in the week, she brought “Legends” to both LIVE with Kelly and Ryan and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars (11/21). During the season 25 finale, pro Val Chmerkovskiy and troupe member Jenna Johnson complemented Ballerini with a beautifully choreographed routine, while she stood on an elevated stage in the middle of the grand ballroom. Yesterday (11/26), Ballerini also honored four young “Legends” being recognized during the Nickelodeon HALO Awards 2017, in addition to presenting Kelly Clarkson with the HALO Hall of Fame Award during the empowering “Helping and Leading Others” one-hour special.
Keeping the heart of Christmas alive, Ballerini can currently be heard in theaters as “Children Go Where I Send You” is highlighted in Sony Pictures Animation’s brand new animated motion picture The Star, as well as The Star: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
