Additionally, Thomas Rhett, who will be hosting the show with his wife, Lauren Akins, will also take the stage for a festive performance.
Paul Miller will direct this year's special, while Robert Deaton will serve as the executive producer and writer.
"The idea for this year's show was to do a throwback of the great Christmas specials of the 1960s and 1970s," Deaton said in a statement. "Andy Williams, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra all had classic Christmas specials where the viewer was invited into the homes of the host to celebrate the holiday like a best friend coming to visit. That was what we wanted to create for this year's show. Instead of a big flashy production, we took a page from those iconic specials to say, 'Come relax, and let's celebrate the holidays together.'"
