Luke Bryan, Alan Jackson and more have been announced as part of the all-star lineup for the 2017 CMA Country Christmas broadcast.

They join Kelsea Ballerini, CB30, Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Dustin Lynch, CeCe Winans, Trisha Yearwood and Chris Young for the eighth annual Christmas extravaganza, which Reba McEntire is hosting for the first time in 2017. She is replacing former Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles, who has hosted the program since 2010.

According to a press release, “The show will have a new look and feel this year, making Reba’s first year as host a can’t-miss country music event.”

McEntire will also perform a song from her new album, My Kind of Christmas. The re-packaged album follows a limited release in 2016 and includes collaborations with Vince Gill and Amy Grant, Lauren Daigle, Darius Rucker, and Kelly Clarkson and Yearwood.

McEntire plans to bring a welcoming vibe to the show in 2017, as opposed to making it a “formal event.”

“But just a friendly ‘sit down, let’s sing, let’s talk a little bit, and then sing another song’ – and with lots of heartfelt emotion,” McEntire tells People, adding she wants to make it feel “personal,” “friendly” and comfortable.”

The 2017 CMA Country Christmas airs Monday, Nov. 27 at 8PM ET on ABC.
