Newly crowned CMA New Artist of the Year Jimmie Allen made his debut performance on CMA Country Christmas on Monday (Nov. 29) with a collaboration featuring Louis York and The Shindellas.

The artists joined forces to perform “What Does Christmas Mean” on the CMA Country Christmas set, getting fans into the holiday spirit with the song that was previously described as a “festive doo-wop ditty.”

Originally featured on multi-GRAMMY nominated songwriting and production team Louis York’s 2017 EP Masterpiece Theater: Act III alongside fellow Weirdo Workshop artists The Shindellas, Allen joined both artists for a reimagined 2020 version that marries each artist’s signature sound to create a track filled with soul, jazz, R&B, pop, an infusion of variety show energy and a whole lot of merry cheer.

“I am a huge fan of Louis York and The Shindellas. I love what they have to say musically,” Allen previously shared. “And I am a big, big fan of Christmas – so being on this song with them is super special and fun.”
