CMT has announced a very special holiday episode of its iconic series CMT Crossroads starring multi-Grammy Award winning duo For King + Country. CMT Crossroads Christmas: For King + Country & Friends features fellow stars Breland, Chrissy Metz, Natalie Grant and Rebecca St. James giving captivating performances of time-honored Christmas classics. The one-hour episode is set to premiere on Monday, December 12th at 10 pm ET/PT, exclusively on CMT. Encores are scheduled for Monday, December 12th at 11 pm ET/PT, Sunday, December 18th at 11 am ET/PT, and a special Christmas Eve airing Saturday, December 24th at 7 am ET/PT.

Tune in for an evening of exciting holiday magic as For King + Country add their signature pop/rock flair to Christmas hymns including “Joy To The World,” “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” “Silent Night” and more. Known for their electric onstage drumming, the duo also turns in a showstopping performance of “Little Drummer Boy.”

In addition, brothers Luke and Joel Smallbone and their guests share intimate Christmas memories, family traditions and what the holiday means to them, as well as heartwarming messages of peace and hope.

“What does Christmas mean to you? For us, it sounds like the most meaningful songs ever written,” recall the Smallbones. “It looks like different genres, family members and cultures coming together – reunited under love, joy and the redemption of a baby boy. We linked arms with our country comrades at CMT to put together a special night that does just that… grateful.”

Multi-Grammy Award winning duo and Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist For King + Country received a 2023 nomination for the upcoming 65th Grammy with Hillary Scott of Lady A for their recently released song, “For God Is With Us.” The single is up for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for the award show that will take place on February 5th and marks the seventh Grammy nomination of their career with four wins.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, CMT Crossroads will mark the occasion later this month with the landmark return of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss in CMT Crossroads: Robert Plant & Alison Krauss premiering Tuesday, November 29th.
