Big and Rich to Host ‘Christmas in the Black Hills’ Special Tonight
The dynamic country duo Big & Rich will host GAC’s ‘Christmas in the Black Hills’ holiday music special on Monday. The show, which will also feature appearances from country acts Thompson Square, Bradley Gaskin, Tracy Lawrence, Andy Gibson and the Farm, will air tonight (Dec. 12) at 8PM ET.
The special was filmed around the Black Hills in the city of Deadwood, S.D.; an entire city that has been named a national historic landmark because of its part in the gold rush of the late 1800’s. The program will include shots from across this historic city, as well as the beautiful Black Hills that surround it.
For ‘Christmas in the Black Hills,’ Big & Rich will perform their holiday song ‘Blue Christmas,’ which they released this month, as well as the Jimmy Fallon original ‘Drunk on Christmas.’ To top off their performances, they’ll be joining the rest of the country crew for a holiday medley of classic Christmas songs as a grand finale to the show.
In addition to hosting the GAC special, the multi-platinum duo recently announced that they will be headlining the 20th annual Wisconsin Country Thunder Festival July 19-22 of next year. They’ll be joined by fellow headliners Jason Aldean, Toby Keith and Blake Shelton for the long-running festival. For now, though, they’re getting into the holiday spirit and offering up a can’t-miss night of country music tonight on the GAC network.
