Premieres Thursday, December 7 at 8 PM ET/PT on getTV
 
          Get ready to “deck the halls” as digital broadcast network getTV prepares to debut its first original offering, “A Nashville Christmas,” a 60-minute music-variety special featuring popular country artists Wynonna, Emmylou Harris, Lorrie Morgan, Pam Tillis, Ashley Cleveland and Dailey & Vincent. The special is one of the highlights of getTV’s third annual “Most Wonderful Month of the Year” celebration.
 
        Among the show’s highlights are Wynonna’s solo performance of “O Holy Night”; Emmylou’s “Coat of Many Colors”; Wynonna and Emmylou’s first ever duet “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem”; Lorrie’s rendition of “The Christmas Song”; and Pam’s “Santa Claus Baby.”
 


         Wynonna first rose to fame in the 1980s alongside her mother Naomi in the country music duo The Judds before beginning her solo career in 1991. Since then, she has released eight studio albums, a live album, a holiday album, and two compilation albums in addition to more than 20 singles. She has two Billboard Awards, an Academy of Country Music Award and four nominations in total, four Grammy Award nominations, four Country Music Association nominations, and an American Music Award nomination.  Following her successful 2016 Christmas tour with her band The Big Noise, Wynonna released her music video for “Keeps Me Alive,” her first in 14 years, this past June.
 
         Emmylou Harris recorded her first album in 1969 and has released many popular albums and singles over the course of her career; a 13-time Grammy winner, she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988. One of her most memorable recordings is a Christmas album, Light of the Stable, released in 1979, with its title track featuring backing vocals by Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Neil Young, along with such holiday classics as "Silent Night", "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "The First Noel."

In a career spanning almost 40 years, Pam Tillis, whose father is country music singer Mel Tillis, has released 17 albums, including 2007’s Just in Time for Christmas, as well as 36 singles. Pam has won a Grammy Award, a Country Music Association Award, two Recorded Event of the Year Awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association and was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2000. In 2013, Lorrie and Pam teamed for a duet album, Dos Divas, and have a new album of duets, Come See Me & Come Lonely, releasing in early November.

Her 2009 album God Don’t Never Change, was nominated for a 2010 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Gospel Album, and her memoir, Little Black Sheep, was published in 2013. Three-time Grammy nominees Dailey & Vincent, with four Dove Awards, 35 IBMA Awards (including three for Entertainer of the Year and three for All-Time Vocal Group of the Year) and five individual Grammys, garnered worldwide attention with their weekly national television series “The Dailey & Vincent Show” on RFD TV, which is currently in production for its second season.
