Carly Pearce Hosted The CMA Country Christmas Special In 2022, And Also Performed

For the second year in a row, Carly Pearce served as the host of the CMA Country Christmas special. The special aired on ABC on Thursday, December 8, 2022.

SO excited & honored to be your host again this year for @cma Country Christmas!” Pearce wrote in a social media post before the special aired.

On top of hosting, Pearce performed multiple times during the special. She opened the show with a performance of “Here Comes Santa Claus” and later sang “The Man with the Bag.” Pearce also teamed up with Molly Tuttle for a medley performance featuring a bunch of Christmas classics.

Tuttle is a Grammy-winning bluegrass artist and musician. Pearce has bluegrass experience as well, since she got her start performing bluegrass music as a teenager.

So it only made sense for Pearce and Tuttle to sing bluegrass versions of the Christmas songs they included in their medley. Those songs were “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Let It Snow,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” and “Winter Wonderland.”

The duo fittingly chose to end the medley with a performance of “Christmas Time’s A-Comin’.” The song was originally recorded by Bill Monroe in 1951, and has been a bluegrass and country staple ever since.

Watch Pearce and Tuttle’s purely bluegrass Christmas performance in the video below. We’d love to hear them sing together again one day!

Pearce did not return to host CMA Country Christmas in 2023. Trisha Yearwood and Amy Grant stepped up to serve as the new hosts of the special. But we hope to see Pearce back on the program sometime in the future!
