The Country Music Association announced the lineup for the 13th edition of its annual “CMA Country Christmas” special, which premieres Thursday, December 8 on ABC and is available to stream on Hulu and Disney+ the next day, and the line-up includes “American Idol” Season 10 No. 1 and country singer Scotty McCreery.

McCreery joins this year’s host Carly Pearce along with country stars Steven Curtis Chapman, Dan + Shay, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Molly Tuttle and The War And Treaty to bring viewers a night of holiday spirit for the show, which was filmed in Nashville, Tennessee, that’s the perfect setting given his nickname as the “Country Music Capital of the World”. It remains unclear at this point which songs McCreery will be performing.

Many former American Idol stars have appeared in the CMA Country Christmas special, including Scotty McCreery himself.

McCreery’s runner-up that season, Lauren Alaina, also appeared in the 2011 special. McCreery returned the next year after releasing his Christmas album, Christmas with Scotty McCreery, and performed Winter Wonderland.

Other “Idol” alumni who have graced the “CMA Country Christmas” stage include Carrie Underwood, Kelly Pickler and Gabby Barrett, along with current “Idol” judge Luke Bryan.

Scotty McCreery has had a pretty busy year. In addition to working on the music and promoting his late-2021 album Same Truck, McCreery became a father. McCreery and his wife Gabi welcomed their first child, a son named Avery, and brought him home last month.

After a few weeks as a dad, Scotty released a new music video for his 2021 song “It is important to her”, which shows his and Gabi’s path to becoming parents. The video tells the story through a scrapbook, with pages for Gabi’s first pregnancy test, her first ultrasound appointment, building furniture for Avery’s nursery, and the two playing Scotty’s album for Avery by holding headphones to Gabi’s baby bump. The video ends with some of the first photos of Baby Avery in the hospital room. The video clarifies that Avery’s full name is Merrick Avery McCreery, but in Social Media PostsScotty and Gabi address him by his middle name.

Scotty first teased the video on Instagram earlier in the week, writing, “👨‍👩‍👦 ‘It Matters To Her’ has taken on a different meaning over the past year. The official music video premieres Monday on @People! Here’s just a taste😉 I can’t wait for you all to see it!!!”.

Other new parents understood what Scotty meant when he said the song about doing things big and small for your partner, as she will notice and appreciate it. A fan wrote on YouTube, “My pregnant wife and I saw you at Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte last year! We love this song and especially this precious video! Our daughter is now 9 months old and will grow up on a heavy dose of Scotty McCreery songs.”
