Four-year-old over-the-air channel GetTV’s first original offering ever, A Nashville Christmas, premieres this Thursday, December 7, at 8 pm ET.
Guests on the musical special include Wynonna, Emmylou Harris, Lorrie Morgan, Pam Tillis, Ashley Cleveland and Dailey & Vincent.
A show highlight is Tillis’s bluesy rendition of “Santa Claus Baby” (below). Her father, country music legend Mel Tillis, passed away less than a month ago. Also of note: Wynona and one of her influncers Harris dueting for the first time on “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem”; Harris’ rendition of Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors”; and Morgan’s jazzy interpretation of “The Christmas Song” (“Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”).
Two 1983 specials will follow A Nashville Christmas on GetTV:
Johnny Cash Christmas 1983, with guests June Carter Cash, Merle Haggard and Ricky Skaggs, at 9 pm:
The Mac Davis Special: The Music Of Christmas, with guests Gladys Knight, Barbara Mandrell, and Ronnie Milsap, shown here performing “White Christmas” with Davis and Knight’s Pips:
