CMA Country Christmas will also feature performances from Steven Curtis Chapman, Maren Morris, Molly Tuttle, and The War And Treaty.

The show will take viewers inside a beautifully decorated home reminiscent of classic Christmas television specials of the past, inviting viewers to sit back and enjoy the season in a warm and intimate setting with their families.

In partnership with Balsam Hill, who provided realistic artificial Christmas trees and holiday decor, CMA will truly bring the magic of Christmas to life in the makeshift home. Information on the products seen on stage during the show can be found HERE.

Ahead of the show, several artists shared their excitement over the opportunity to perform on CMA Country Christmas.

“It’s my first time performing on CMA Country Christmas in like a decade, which is nuts you know? I had so much fun when we got to do it before,” McCreery shared. ”I sing Christmas music all year long, like ask my band, ask my family. So to get to do this with all the artists on the big stage is pretty cool.”

“CMA Country Christmas is one of our favorite things to do every year and this year we get to do two songs which is amazing. Two original songs, we’re doing ‘Officially Christmas’ and ‘Holiday Party.’ ‘Holiday Party is a brand-new song, we’ve never performed it anywhere, so hopefully, we remember the words,” Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers joked. “But if we don’t, no one knows the song yet, so it’s a good place to debut it. Christmas is always an exciting time for us. We love Christmas music and to get invited here with so many amazing artists at CMA Country Christmas, it’s a blast. Hopefully we get invited back next year.”

“This show is special in a way that it is always the first thing that gets me excited for actual Christmas. When I walk in and see the set I’m like… It’s very warm and inviting and we get to play something we don’t normally play,” Old Dominion said collectively.

“I am most looking forward to seeing the set and the band and I am also really excited to get to be singing ‘Merry Christmas Baby’ because it’s one of my favorite Christmas songs,” Morris said. “So many people have covered it over the last hundred years, so I’m kind of like combining a bunch of them into mine, but yeah I’m looking forward to it.”

“This is our first time performing on Country Christmas and we’re performing ‘O’ Holy Night’ I can’t even talk about how excited we are,” The War And Treaty admitted. ”We watched it last year sitting at home in our house and it was just a dream we were like ‘wow, could we do this.’”

Shania Twain delivered a show-stopping performance during the 2022 People’s Choice Awards, where she was being honored with the Music Icon Award.

On Tuesday evening (Dec. 6), the country superstar performed a medley of her greatest hits as well as a new song from her forthcoming sixth album, Queen of Me

Twain took to the People’s Choice Awards stage for the first time since 2005 and demanded the crowd’s attention with her powerhouse vocals, visually stunning production and her dazzling looks throughout the performance. 

The performance kicked off with Twain’s fan-favorite 1995 hit, “Any Man Of Mine.” Surrounded by fire and donning an all red leather ensemble, Twain put her soaring vocals on full display and was accompanied by several dancers, two of whom who were riding mechanical bulls. Twain then unveiled her new pink hair as she entered the stage with eight dancers, who were wearing animal print bodysuits, to perform “That Don’t Impress Me Much.”

During “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” Twain changed the song’s famous “Brad Pitt” lyric to fellow Canadian and the People’s Icon award recipient, Ryan Reynolds, who was present in the crowd and had the best reaction when she dropped his name in the song. 

The arena went dark and lasers filled the room as Twain launched into her latest single “Wake Up Dreaming,” while wearing a bedazzled skin toned bodysuit. She concluded her performance with her iconic hit “Man! I Feel Like A Woman.” Twain sparkled as she belted out the lyrics to the award-winning hit, which got Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood out of their seats and dancing in the audience. 

Following her jaw-dropping performance, Twain was presented with the Music Icon Award from her friend, Actor Billy Porter.

“Oh my gosh, this is such a privilege and a dream! Am I dreaming? Thank you so much for presenting me with this award and highlighting my work for having a significant impact,” Twain began. “I don’t know if that’s the right thing to say, but it’s always my wish to inspire people with my music.

“I always miss my mother at these moments my life. She would have loved watching her little girl living this moment right now. But my fans, my friends, my team — you are the ones, who really fill that space… not my mother’s space. But you’re here with me, you’re celebrating, we’re celebrating together, and you’ve made me feel loved and special my whole working life. I’ll always be grateful for that.”

“From a very young age I turned to songwriting as a form of escapism,” she continued. “This is my go-to place. It never occurred to me how powerful lyrics can become when you are able to record and share them with the world. The biggest honor is that people have found strength and inspiration in my work. Thank you and I love you for that.”

The legendary country star ended her heartfelt speech with a motivational message for her younger fans.

“I just want to say: Giddy-up, kids. Embrace your individuality and your crazy ideas,” Twain added. “Just be brave. Let’s remember, there is power in numbers, we are in this together, love is love, and when a door slams in your face, take a freaking run and leap at your door and kick it down! You won’t regret it.”

“All I have to say is: Be the queen of you,” the 57-year-old singer concluded, while referencing the title of her upcoming sixth studio album, Queen of Me.

Queen Of Me arrives on February 3, 2023. The 12-track project features previously released tunes “Waking Up Dreaming,” “Not Just A Girl,” “Last Day Of Summer” and more. The album marks Twain’s first full-length offering and record since 2017, and her official debut for her new label partner Republic Nashville, a division of Republic Records.

“Right now, I’m feeling very comfortable in my own skin – and this album reflects that musically. Life is short and I want to be uplifted, colorful, unapologetic and empowered,” Twain explained of the project on Twitter. ”I want to carry a clear message, particularly as a woman, to always remember my power and I hope the songs are a reminder to you, of that same power inside you!”

In addition to Twain’s show-stopping performance, Lauren Spencer Smith also performed during the 2022 People’s Choice Awards.

Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Billy Porter, Colin Hanks, David Spade, Dwyane Wade, George Lopez, Heidi Klum, Laverne Cox, Lil Rel Howery, Mayan Lopez, McKenna Grace, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Niecy Nash-Betts, Nikki Glaser, Sarah Hyland, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and The Miz & Maryse were on hand to present during the star-studded ceremony.

Additionally, The 2022 People’s Choice Awards honored Ryan Reynolds with the People’s Icon Award and Emmy and Grammy award-winning superstar Lizzo with the People’s Champion Award.

Additionally, Carrie Underwood just wrapped the fall leg of her Denim & Rhinestones Tour, which kicked off on Saturday, October 15 in Greenville, South Carolina, and currently runs through March 17 in Seattle, Washington.

Underwood’s tour is in support of her latest record, Denim & Rhinestones, which arrived on June 10, 2022, via Capitol Records Nashville. The 12 track project features her latest single “Hate My Heart,” the project’s lead single “Ghost Story,” as well as fan-favorite tracks such as “Pink Champagne,” “Crazy Angels,” and “Velvet Heartbreak.”

“We cover a lot of ground on this album,” Underwood previously shared in a press release. ”We have a lot of songs that have a bit of a ‘throwback’ feel, but they sound super fresh. I grew up listening to so many different kinds of music and that is extremely evident in this body of work.”

“These are musical influences that are all in me and work their way out, and I just decided this time not to get in their way,” the hitmaker added. “I think this whole album ended up being a big reflection of me as a person and as an artist.”

Denim & Rhinestones is the follow-up to 2018’s Cry Pretty. Since then, Underwood also released a Christmas album, My Gift, in 2020, and a Gospel album, My Savior, in 2021.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to Resorts World Las Vegas next summer,” says Underwood. “REFLECTION is a show I’m so proud of and have so much fun performing. I love being out on the road with THE DENIM & RHINESTONES TOUR and look forward to returning to Vegas once that wraps, as it has become our home away from home where we get to play to audiences from all over the world.”

Morgan Wallen added over a dozen new shows to his massive 2023 One Night At A Time World Tour due to an overwhelming demand.

On Monday afternoon (Dec. 5), the country superstar announced the addition of 14 new tour dates across 13 cities, with back-to-back nights at stadium shows.

Marking one of the largest tours of 2023 so far and the biggest tour of Wallen’s career, the 58-show trek will visit 26 stadiums, plus arenas, amphitheaters and festivals to fans across four countries and two continents. 

The tour officially kicks off on Wed., March 15 in Auckland, NZ at the Spark Arena. The U.S. leg of the tour begins on April 14 with back-to-back nights at Milwaukee’s American Family Field. The tour will make its way around North America with stops at 17 stadiums as well as various arenas, amphitheaters, and festivals.

The trek will feature support from ERNEST and Bailey Zimmerman on all dates. HARDY and Parker McCollum will also appear on select dates.

After making his stadium debut with a record-breaking show at Globe Life Field in Texas, Wallen will visit several ballparks throughout North America, including New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Milwaukee’s American Family Field, Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Boston’s Fenway Park and more.

Produced by Live Nation, the North American leg of the trek will wrap up on October 7 at Tacoma Dome in Washington.

“Man, what a year 2022 has been with the Dangerous Tour. I had the time of my life, and I cannot begin to express how grateful I am that my fans connected with the Dangerous album the way they did,” Wallen shares. “I’ve had so many people ask me if I wanted to take some time off; but the truth is – I have been writing and making so much music in my off-time because I feel as inspired as I ever have. It feels like new songs are pouring out of me, and I love that feeling. We are going to run it back next year with the One Night At A Time World Tour. Bigger venues. New countries. Bigger memories. See y’all there.”

Wallen’s “You Proof” continues its wildly successful run at country radio as it reclaimed the No.1 spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay for the 6th non-consecutive week. Meanwhile, his newest single, “Thought You Should Know,” continues to make its way up the charts.

The tour comes after his highly successful Dangerous Tour, which included more than 50 dates. The record-breaking trek broke records at 30 venues across the U.S., including historic sellouts at 11 venues.

In an effort to give back to those in need, Wallen will donate $3 of every ticket sold on the U.S. dates to the More Than My Hometown Foundation. Established in 2021, the foundation benefits causes near and dear to the superstar’s heart, including organizations such as Greater Good Music, Children Are People, the Salvation Army, and the National Museum of African American Music.

There is no official pre-sale in the U.S. for this tour, so fans are advised to only purchase through verified fans.

For more information, visit www.morganwallen.com. Morgan Wallen Fan Club pre-sale for Australia and New Zealand shows begins on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Wallen celebrated the news of his massive 2023 world tour announcement with the release of a three-song collection called One Thing At A Time – Sampler, which features “One Thing At A Time,” “Tennessee Fan,” and “Days That End In Why.”

The three new songs serve as a taste of what’s to come from Wallen in the future.

Blake Shelton and Carson Daly have teamed up to launch an exciting new celebrity game show called Barmageddon.

Airing on USA Network and hosted by Nikki Bella, each episode of Barmageddon finds two celebrities playing a unique set of five games in Ole Red to win a prize for a viral internet sensation each has chosen to support.

Ahead of the long-awaited Barmageddon premiere, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about the show, including how to watch, a list of the exciting celebrity guests, and more.

What Is Barmageddon?

The idea for Barmageddon came to Shelton and Daly while they were working together on the set of NBC’s The Voice.

“What we were aiming for was real-life The Hangover,” Shelton told PEOPLE. “We wanted to try to capture that in a TV show with people that we know.”

The show will feature Daly as a bartender and Shelton as live entertainment alongside the bar’s house band.

“Barmageddon is a show where the celebrities you love give viral video sensations a shot at redemption, playing some crazy [bar] games,” Carson Daly previously explained.

Throughout the show, celebrity guests will partake in rowdy bar games such as Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, Drunken Axe Hole, Sharts (“Shelton Darts”) and more. Click HERE to read a full explanation of the games that appear in the show.

The show is produced by White Label Productions and JLP Pictures for the USA Network with Shelton, Daly, Lee Metzger, and White Label’s Chris Wagner serving as executive producers.

When Does Barmageddon Air?

Barmageddon premieres Monday, December 5 at 11/10c on the USA Network.

Who Is The Host Of Barmageddon?

WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella hosts the show.

“Blake and Carson are so much fun and so hilarious. And then every guest that came through was just good times. They made me feel so comfortable off the bat,” Bella told PEOPLE of her co-stars. “I had instant chemistry with the guys and all our guests. I am the queen of TMI, and it’s the first place I was accepted so amazingly.”

Who Are The Stars Of Barmageddon?

Blake Shelton and Carson Daly star in and executive produce the celebrity game show.

“We started playing the games with the contestants and the celebrities. We were becoming part of the show,” Blake shared with PEOPLE. “I was always just going to be in the background and Carson was going to be making drinks and commenting. Next thing, because it’s so much fun, I wanted to be a part of it.”

Which Celebrity Guests Will Appear On Barmageddon?

Gwen Stefani, Sheryl Crow, Elle King, Chris Young, Trace Adkins, Blake Shelton, Kane Brown as well as actors Jay Pharoah, Martin Kove, Lil Rel Howery and actress Malin Akerman.

In addition, Tennessee Titans’ coach Mike Vrabel, NASCAR drivers Clint Bowyer and Jimmie Johnson plus WWE wrestlers Sasha Banks and Brie Bella will also appear during the show.

Who Will Each Guest Compete Against?

Gwen Stefani vs. Sheryl Crow
Elle King vs. Chris Young
Clint Bowyer vs. Jimmie Johnson
Sasha Banks vs. Brie Bella
Jay Pharoah vs. Martin Kove
Trace Adkins vs. Coach Mike Vrabel
Blake Shelton vs. Kane Brown
Lil Rel Howery vs. Malin Akerman

Where Was Barmageddon Filmed?

Barmageddon was filmed at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Nashville Bar, which was inspired by his chart-topping hit, “Ol’ Red.” Ole Red Nashville, located at 300 Broadway, is the flagship location. There are several other Ole Red locations, including the Nashville International Airport; Tishomingo, Oklahoma, Blake’s hometown; Gatlinburg, Tennessee, in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains; and Orlando, Florida’s Icon Park.

A sixth Ole Red location is scheduled to open in Las Vegas, Nevada, in late 2023.

As they say in show business, the show must go on and that’s exactly what will happen when Clint Black hits the stage tonight without his wife, Lisa Hartman Black, by his side.

The country music icon’s Sunday evening (Dec. 4) concert in Ottumwa, Iowa at Bridge View Center will go on as planned, however, Hartman Black, will not be taking the stage as she is still recovering from an illness and is unable to perform.

The couple’s daughter, Lily Black will perform alongside the “Killin’ Time” singer.

“Ottumwa, IA… Sorry to report; Lisa will need another night to recover but Lily Pearl Black and I will see you tonight!” Clint Black shared on social media, just hours before the concert.

Clint later shared an update on his wife’s condition with a fan who inquired on Twitter, saying, “She’s a little better every day. But the cough is too much to sing through.”

Hartman Black was also too ill to perform on Saturday evening (Dec. 3), where Clint and his daughter Lily also performed without Hartman Black.

“Alas, @lisahbofficial is not well enough to sing tonight, but @lilypblack and I are going forward with the show at @WichitaOrpheum,” Clint Black shared on Twitter at the time. When a fan asked if the show as still on, he later clarified, “The show will go on but sadly, Lisa can’t sing with us.”

The news comes just days after the family was forced to cancel their show at ArcBest Performing Arts Center in Fort Smith, Arkansas on Thursday (Dec. 1) due to illness.

“Due to the seasonal bug hitting the touring party, the Clint Black concert, featuring Lisa Hartman Black scheduled for December 1, 2022, at ArcBest Performing Arts Center has been canceled,” Black shared in a statement earlier this week.

The Black Family is in the midst of their Mostly Hits & The Mrs. Tour, which kicked off on Thursday, November 17 in Burnsville, Minnesota. The tour features the beloved husband and wife alongside their daughter, Lily Pearl.

“Having my family on the road is the best and the reactions have been everything we hoped they would be!” Black previously shared.

The extended run, promoted by Pepper Entertainment, will wrap up in Pensacola, FL at Saenger Theatre on February 5, 2023.

Lily Pearl Black recently released a three-song EP, Songs From The Mostly Hits & The Mrs Tour. The collection includes a new song, “Never Knew Love,” which was co-written by Clint Black and David Foster. This marks Lily Pearl’s first-ever studio recording.

The EP also includes live versions of her cover of Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty” and Randy Newman’s “Every Time It Rains.”

“These are three of my favorite songs and I wanted to share them with the great audiences we have had on the tour,” Lily Pearl shared in a statement. “I am new to this business and they have been so gracious and supportive. They inspire me to work really hard to bring them my best every night.”

Both legs of The Mostly Hits & The Mrs. Tour are a result of their PBS Special that began airing in June.

Clint Black was recently presented with 60 Million-Air award by BMI to celebrate 60 million broadcast performances of his songs. He was also awarded a plaque commemorating 38 billion audience airplay impressions.

“This is one of the most moving and exciting things that has happened to me since my daughter was born,” Black shared at the time. “From the beginning of my recording career, I was determined to write my own songbook, one that would last the test of time. These awards validate for me everything I thought I was doing. Thank you BMI, Luminate, RIAA and most of all country radio and the fans.”

Black is a celebrated artist with 22 No.1 hits and 31 Top 10 singles. To date, he has sold more than 20 million records and has been recognized with many awards and nominations, including a GRAMMY Award.

The next scheduled tour date of the Mostly Hits & The Mrs. Tour is slated for Thursday, December 8 at Wachholz College Center in Kalispell, MT. At this time, it is unclear whether or not Lisa Hartman Black will be well enough to perform.

Kenny Chesney is mourning the loss of Ruby “Da Ruba Girl,” a rescue dog that was adopted by his longtime friend, Mary.

The country superstar took to social media early Sunday (Dec. 4) to share a heartfelt post in memory of his four-legged friend.

“Today we lost Da Ruba Girl. Ruby lived her life never holding anything against anybody. She had an ancient, calming soul. She was honest and authentic, she was a protector, she took a warrior’s path in the journey of her life. Ruby loved the sun and how it felt on her face. She and I had that in common,” Chesney wrote alongside a photo of Da Ruba Girl.

He went on to bid farewell to the pup with an emotional message.

“Today I know Ruby is sitting somewhere with the sun on her face happy and grateful to have slipped her skin and body that was full of cancer. I know she is happy to have had Poncho in her life. They were partners in crime and never spent a day apart. But she is forever grateful that Mary saved her from the shelter. But really they ended up saving each other. I’m going to miss her, especially in the mornings. That’s when she and I really connected. So bye-bye, Ruby. You were a very good girl. We loved you, and thank you for teaching us how to love unconditionally. You were one heaven of a dog. “She’ll be known all over the world… as Da Ruba Girl.”

Chesney’s love for Da Ruba Girl inspired him to write a song in her honor. The track was written solely by the East Tennessee native and plays exclusively on Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio channel on SiriusXM.

“Her best friend’s name is Poncho / And she loves him, oh my gosh / Like Frosty Paws / She hates the mowers and the marrow / Like she hates to get a wash / Her hair doesn’t grow and it doesn’t curl / She’s Da Ruba Girl,” Chesney sings on the first chorus of the tune, which also name-drops his 11-year-old dog, Poncho.

Chesney adopted Poncho, a Goldendoodle, in 2012.

“A friend gave it to me and said, ‘Here, Kenny, you have to learn to attach to something!’ God’s honest truth!” Chesney told PEOPLE at the time. “Now, I love the guy. Next thing you know, next day at Pet Smart, I’m buying stuff, buying things and I have no idea!”

Poncho is the “Here And Now” singer’s first dog since childhood. He sometimes pops up on Chesney’s social media accounts and even made a guest appearance in his 2012 “Come Over” music video.

Kenny Chesney is an animal lover and showcased his love for dogs and cats in 2018 when he helped rescue nearly 1,400 animals after Hurricane Irma tore through the U.S. Virgin Islands. His Love For Love City Foundation aided in the response through a partnership with Victory Air and Big Dog Ranch Rescue.

Chesney recently announced that will be returning to the road in 2023 on his I Go Back Tour.

The trek, which kicks off on March 25 in State College, PA, features support from Kelsea Ballerini and will find the eight-time Entertainer of the Year going back to where he started in an effort to honor his fans – No Shoes Nation – in the best way he knows how.

The I Go Back Tour will visit 21 cities across the United States before wrapping up at the Hy-Vee Indy Race on July 22 in Des Moines, IA.

The tour comes after a record-breaking year for Chesney, who played 21 NFL stadiums this past summer.

Keith Urban honored the late Christine McVie during his headlining performance on Wednesday, November 30, at Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia on his The Speed of Now World Tour.

The country superstar and “Wild Hearts” singer took to social media to share his tribute performance with the music community, who were also mourning loss of the late Fleetwood Mac co-lead vocalist and keyboardist.

“Last night in Gold Coast ❤ @christinemcvieofficial,” Urban captioned the clip.

In the clip, Urban delivered a heartfelt speech about the late McVie before performing a medley of Fleetwood Mac’s songs. 

“Today, we lost one of the members of Fleetwood Mac, the incredible Christine McVie, who was amazing. For me growing up, listening to their music, you had three incredible vocalists in that band,” Urban told the crowd. “You had Lindsey Buckingham, who brought this kind of punk, angular, ethos to the whole thing. You had Stevie Nicks’ voice, which is angelic, otherworldly. Then you had Christine, who for me, is the maternal, soulful heartbeat, vocally.”

Urban went on to perform small portions of Fleetwood Mac songs, including a tune from their Self-Titled album, “Say You Love Me,” as well as “Everywhere” from Fleetwood Mac’s 1987 album, Tango In The Night. The country hitmaker also included “Songbird” within the medley, which appeared on the band’s 1977 album, Rumours.

@keithurban

last night in Gold Coast ❤ #christinemcvie #fleetwoodmac

♬ Everywhere – Fleetwood Mac

Christine McVie died on Wednesday, November 30, a statement from her family confirmed. She was 79 years old.

“On behalf of Christine McVie’s family, it is with a heavy heart we are informing you of Christine’s death. She passed away peacefully at hospital this morning, Wednesday, November 30th 2022, following a short illness,” the statement read. “She was in the company of her family. We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this extremely painful time, and we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally. RIP Christine McVie.”

Fleetwood Mac also took to social media to mourn the sudden loss of McVie.

“There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure,” the band collectively wrote. “She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life. We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.”

Born Christine Perfect, she began pursuing a career in music as a pre-teen and joined the group Chicken Shack in 1967. Chicken Shack found success on the U.K. charts in 1967 with their hit single, “I’d Rather Go Blind,” which peaked at No. 14.

Just one year after joining Chicken Shack, she married Fleetwood Mac member John McVie in 1968 and that same year appeared on Fleetwood Mac’s second studio album, Mr. Wonderful. She later became a full time member of the group in 1970.

She later left Fleetwood Mac in 1998 after 28 years and reunited with the band in 2014.

The late instrumentalist and singer also pursued a solo career. McVie released three studio albums, including her debut album Christine Perfect in 1970, her self-titled album in 1984, and In The Meantime (2004). Additionally, she went on to release a duets’ album with Lindsey Buckingham titled Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie.

She was most known for hits such as “Little Lies,” “Everywhere,” “Don’t Stop,” “Say You Love Me,” and “Songbird.”

Eight of McVie’s original songs appeared on Fleetwood Mac’s 1988 Greatest Hits album.

McVie was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 as a member of Fleetwood Mac. She also received a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music that same year.

She also received numerous awards throughout her career, including a Gold Badge of Merit Award from Basca, the Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors, the Trailblazer Award at the UK Americana Awards as well as two GRAMMY awards.

Fleetwood Mac was founded in London in 1967. As one of the most successful rock groups of all time, band went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani joined forces during NBC’s 90th Annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center special on Wednesday evening (Nov. 30) in New York City.

The married couple delivered a loving performance of their fan-favorite holiday duet, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” a track the pair co-wrote together that appears on Stefani’s first full-length holiday album of the same name and was released in 2017.

Stefani donned a strapless emerald green dress while Shelton opted for a red and black flannel with jeans while performing the beloved holiday duet.

“I want to thank you baby / You make it feel like Christmas,” The Voice coaches sing in perfect harmony on the chorus of the tune during the 90th annual tree lighting ceremony.

Watch Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s Duet From The Christmas In Rockefeller Center Special Below.

In addition to performing together, Shelton and Stefani also took to the Rockefeller Center rooftop for solo performances, including “Up On The House Top (Ho Ho Ho)” as well as “Under The Christmas Lights” and “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” respectively.

“You Make It Feel Like Christmas” is one of four collaborations that Shelton and Stefani have together. The other three collaborations are “Go Ahead And Break My Heart,” as well as their two chart-topping hits “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere.”

Ahead of their performance on the annual holiday special, Shelton and Stefani told US Weekly about their favorite holiday tradition.

“Gwen and I, our tradition has become cooking during Christmas — and not just like your normal, typical [dishes],” Shelton told the outlet. “But we always challenge ourselves and try to come up with a different, weird, complicated, difficult thing to cook every year. It started one year [when] she wanted to do a beef Wellington, which is not easy, by the way.”

The “No Body” singer went on to explain that he and his wife, Stefani, always try “something weird and new” each and every year. 

“Gwen’s family, there’s a lot of Italian blood in her family,” Shelton continued to tell the outlet. “And so there’s tons of pastas and there’s a reason that I have a chin like a stork the last five years. It’s because I’m hanging out with the Stefanis now.”

Shelton then admitted that “singing with Gwen is way harder than cooking with her.” He continued, “Cooking is easy for us because neither one of us really know what we’re doing, and all we do is laugh the whole time. With music, we actually take [it] serious.”

2022 Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting also featured performances from Jimmie Allen, Andrea Bocelli, Matteo Bocelli, Virginia Bocelli, Brett Eldredge, David Foster and Katharine McPhee, Mickey Guyton, Alicia Keys, Amy Poehler, Radio City Rockettes, Maya Rudolph, the Muppets of Sesame Street, Dan + Shay, The Shindellas, Louis York, and more.

In addition to performances, the show also featured the annual lighting of the giant Christmas tree in New York City’s famed Rockefeller Center, which was lit with 50,000 LED lights for the first time this season.

Co-hosted by TODAY show hosts Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Craig Melvin, NBC’s 90th Annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center aired on Wednesday (Nov. 30) at 8/7c on NBC.

Additionally, Shelton recently released the super deluxe edition of his holiday album, Cheers, It’s Christmas. The project, dubbed Cheers, It’s Christmas (Super Deluxe), features new versions of classic Christmas tracks “Up On The House Top” and “Holly Jolly Christmas,” as well as “Cheer For The Elves,” a previously released original song from Gwen Stefani.

“During the holidays I always celebrate traditions and add new things, so cheers to some new music,” Shelton said of the project. “After all, what is Christmas without it. I just want to thank everyone for including my music in your festive playlists all these years. It really is ‘the most wonderful time of the year.’”

Cheers, It’s Christmas was first released in October of 2012. The project includes several collaborations, including “There’s A New Kid In Town” with former The Voice coach Kelly Clarkson, “Oklahoma Christmas” featuring Reba McEntire, “Home” with Michael Bublé and “Time For Me To Come Home” with Shelton’s very own mother, Dorothy.

The album also includes Christmas classics such as “Jingle Bell Rock,” “White Christmas,” “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow” and “Winter Wonderland.”

Additionally, Shelton will soon hit the road on his 18-date winter 2023 tour with special guests Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean.

“We’re throwing one hell of a party in 2023… the #BackToTheHonkyTonk Tour with @carlypearce and @thejacksondean is coming to a city near you!!! It’s going to be big,” Shelton wrote. “Tickets on sale September 16th and September 23rd – visit blakeshelton.com for more info. See y’all out there!!!”
