Gabby Barrett will be making her first appearance on the CMA Country Christmas airing tonight on ABC. She has chosen to sing “The First Noel,” a song she recently released, which she tells us is a personal holiday favorite. “‘The First Noel’ is a song that’s very special to me and very familiar as well. It’s one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs, and so I thought it would be really fun to make my own kind of version of the song. I’m really excited to be performing it on the CMA Country Christmas this year. I’ve watched that the past couple of years so to now be the person flip-flopped, gonna be performing it on the television is really exciting.”
CMA Country Christmas also features performances by Dan + Shay, Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini, and the show’s co-host, Thomas Rhett. CMA Country Christmas airs at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
