FOR KING + COUNTRY reflects: “What does Christmas mean to you? For us, it sounds like the most meaningful songs ever written. 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.”
