Reba McEntire will be back in front of TV cameras soon.

The legendary entertainer has been tapped to host CMA Country Christmas, the annual holiday event airing on ABC. The two-hour show will be taped at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville November 14th and broadcast on ABC November 27th. Performers will be revealed in the coming weeks.

“Christmas is such a special time,” Reba says. “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.”

The CMA Country Christmas taping comes just weeks after Reba releases My Kind Of Christmas, a newly-packaged version of last year’s limited release that includes collaborations with Vince Gill and Amy Grant, Lauren Daigle, Darius Rucker, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood. That project comes October 13th.
