Carrie Underwood will join Jennifer Nettles at the CMA Country Christmas special slated to air on ABC.

Nettles will host for the fifth time, while Underwood will perform along with Sara Evans, Lucy Hale, Little Big Town, Idina Menzel, LeAnn Rimes and Michael W. Smith.

Slated to tape November 7, the special is expected to run two hours when it airs on ABC.

"After being the host of CMA Country Christmas for five years now, it is hard to pick one thing I love about it," Nettles said in a statement. “There are so many fun moments. Whether it is the performances or duets, getting to perform Christmas songs with such great artists is really fun for me. It’s really a fun show all around.”
