About the Show
NBC Holiday Special, Thursday Dec 11 10/9c. Blake Shelton, country music superstar and coach of "The Voice," is back to host "Blake Shelton's Not So Family Christmas," a star-studded event airing on Thursday, December 11 (10:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. ET). He'll be joined by Grammy Award-winning guest stars Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert and Reba on songs including "Let It Snow," "There's a New Kid in Town," "Oklahoma Christmas" and "Home."
The special will also feature a very special duet with Shelton's mother, Dorothy Shackleford, with whom he co-wrote the song "Time for Me to Come Home," as well as a number of comedy bits featuring special guests Christina Aguilera (NBC's "The Voice"), Larry the Cable Guy and Jay Leno.
"I love Christmas music," said Shelton. "I listen to it year-round. I had always wanted to do a Christmas album so getting to do 'Cheers, It's Christmas' was exciting for me, and then to have NBC let me do a special around the CD, well, I still can't believe it. I am so proud of the performances on the show, the skits are hilarious and the icing on the cake was having the opportunity to perform, with my mom, a song we co-wrote together. Christmas has always been about family to me so having my mom and Miranda there - that made it Christmas."
"Blake Shelton's Not So Family Christmas" is produced by Irwin Entertainment. John Irwin and Narvel Blackstock are executive producers.
