When she filled that role on the ABC special last year, the Sugarland vocalist was about to deliver her first baby. In the same month her son marks his first birthday, Nettles is back for her fourth round introducing a parade of country artists performing seasonal favorites in the two-hour show Monday, Dec. 2.
(ABC repeats it both Saturday, Dec. 14, and Sunday, Dec. 22.)
"One of the things I had hoped for this show was for it to become a tradition," Nettles tells Zap2it. "As a new mom, I'm hyper-aware of that now. This is what families do; they start traditions. Things start to take on a different meaning when you're a family."
The first round of performers has been announced for the 2013 Cmt Music Awards, hosted by Kristen Bell and Jason Aldean. Taylor Swift, Hunter Hayes and Luke Bryan will join Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert's Pistol Annies on the Bridgestone Arena stage in Nashville.
Swift is nominated in two categories this year: Video of the Year for "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and Female Video of the Year for "Begin Again." Hayes is nominated for Video of the Year and Male Video of the Year, both for "Wanted."
Bryan will compete against Hayes in the same categories for his video, "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye," and is nominated for two more categories: Collaborative Video of the Year and Cmt Performance of the Year.
The Cmt Music Awards released this year's nominees and announced that voting has opened. Eric Church, Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert lead the nominations with four each. Artists with three nominations include Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes, Jana Kramer, Journey, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw. Fans can vote at Cmt.com, on mobile devices and via the Cmt Insider app and via text message through Midnight Et on Sunday, June 2.
