Blake Shelton is hosting his first Christmas special, “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas”. The star-studded event will air on NBC on Monday, December 3 at 9pm central. Blake will be joined by Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert and Reba McEntire on songs like Let it Snow, There’s a New Kid in Town, Oklahoma Christmas and Home.
Blake’s special will also feature a special duet with his mother, Dorothy Shackleford, whom he co-wrote the song, Time for Me to Come Home, as well as, a number of comedy bits featuring Christina Aquilera, Larry the Cable Guy and Jay Leno.
“I love Christmas music,” said Shelton. “I listen to it year-round. I had always wanted to do a Christmas album so getting to do ‘Cheers, It’s Christmas’ was exciting for me, and then to have NBC let me do a special around the CD, well, I still can’t believe it. I am so proud of the performances on the show, the skits are hilarious and the icing on the cake was having the opportunity to perform with my mom, a song we co-wrote together. Christmas has always been about family to me so having my mom and Miranda there — that made it Christmas.”
