Blake Shelton’s Christmas Special to Feature Very Special Guest Stars
Country favorite Blake Shelton is really in a holly jolly mood this season. Not only has the singer released a Christmas album, he is getting ready to film a Christmas special for NBC that will feature guest appearances by his friends and family.
The ironically-titled 'Blake Shelton's Not So Family Christmas' is set to tape on Sunday, Nov. 4 in Los Angeles, with no air date yet announced. The show will features special appearances by Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert, as well as Reba McEntire, Kelly Clarkson, and his mother Dorothy Shackleford, who also co-wrote and sang on 'Time for Me to Come Home' from his new Christmas album 'Cheers, It's Christmas.'
Reba joined her fellow Oklahoma native for 'Oklahoma Christmas,' while Clarkson also appeared on the album for a duet on 'There's a New Kid in Town,' so it seems likely those songs will be featured in the special. And Lambert sang with her husband on 'Jingle Bell Rock,' so we're guessing that one's probably in the set list, too.
The reigning CMA and ACM Male Vocalist of the Year even ran a flyaway contest for a lucky fan to attend the taping of his special in Los Angeles.
