LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- For the seventh year in a row, Jennifer Nettles will host the star-studded CMA Country Christmas special which will air tonight.

Country luminaries and pop stars including Kelsea Ballerini, Brad Paisley, Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood, Rascal Flatts, Andra Day, Sarah McLachlan, Loretta Lynn and more will perform on the festive show.

Nettles thinks this year's show will be the best because many of the artists, including herself, put out Christmas albums this year.

"It's people wanting to come and celebrate these albums that they've made, " she said. "And so this year, we have a great crop of artists who have put out records this year, everybody from Kacey Musgraves to Brett Eldredge to Chris Young, you know. So it will be a very, I think, filled out show this year because of that."

This year the show will feature duets by Jennifer Nettles and Andra Day and Brad Paisley and Chris Young.

CMA Country Christmas airs at 8 p.m. ET tonight on ABC.
