    My favorite was Faith Hill singing Little Drummer Boy, she brought me to tears. I do not think anyone could have preformed that song more meaningful than Faith Hill. God Bless you!!!

    Scotty Mcreery all the way I <3 him soooo much GO SCOTTY

  12. Kayla says:

    My favorite performance was SCOTTY MCCREERY! He is my deep voiced angel! That girl was so lucky before his performance. I met him during the American idol tour, but I want him to actually notice me. I have been a fan since DAY ONE. I love how powerful his pipes are! He is such a sweet guy. He is going to go far in country music! NOEL! I love him this big

  13. Tricia says:

    Loved Lauren Alaina’s version of “My Grown Up Christmas List” …really love that girl’s voice!


    Enjoyed the whole show from start to finish!!!!!!!! Thank you…..Thank you…….

    While my family and I enjoyed all of the performances, we were particularly touched by Scotty McCreery’s beautiful rendition of The First Noel — what a voice (and persona)!

  16. Dru says:

    Faith Hill and Martina……….AWSOME.

  17. nancy Maiden says:

    Loved the show everone was great. Good to see good country music. Should have envited Hank Jr.

  18. Loved the entire show but Scotty McCreery’s “The First Noel” was my favorite.

  19. Louise says:

    Keith Urban — beyond awesome. He sang with such conviction and sincerity. Even with his voice problems, he sang superb. Keith always rises to the occasion.

  20. Normajean says:

    Little Big Town’s two songs…..loved the rockin Christmas song with Keith Urban but really loved Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

  21. Joy says:

    Keith Urban was wonderful, in spite of his injured vocal cord! “The Christmas Song” was warm, mellow-sounding, and loving…. just like Keith! He’s right… his version of the song was like being cuddled-up next to a toasty fire!

  22. June Bug says:

    Quite a show and the only Christmas special that has feeling.

    The other networks should follow their lead and make more program like this.

    Also glad to see that they were renewed for the next decade unless I’m mistaken.
