Keith, Brad, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland to Do Christmas Show for ABC

Lineup also includes Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery, Kellie Pickler, Faith, Martina and others.

Ya know, since you have a bunch of big country stars in town for the Country Music Association Awards Nov. 9, might as well tape another big TV special, right?

So for the second straight year, the country stars will gather again the next night, again at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, to tape CMA Country Christmas, a special that'll air Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

By the way, if you're going to be in Music City for the CMA Awards, you can actually buy $25 and $50 tix to the Christmas show taping as well, through Ticketmaster.

Jennifer Nettles will host the yuletide extravaganza.

Among those performing: Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill with Amy Grant, Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Kellie Pickler and Brian Setzer.
