‘CMA Country Christmas’ Special Becomes Family Show With the Band Perry’s ‘Santa Claus Is Coming to Town’
One got a sense of what Perry family Christmases past may have been like early on during the 2012 'CMA Country Christmas' special on ABC Thursday night (Dec. 20). The Band Perry delivered a spirited rendition of 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,' with lead singer Kimberly Perry turning out the words in a way only she could.
Alongside brothers Reid and Neil dressed in their favorite holiday sweaters, sister Perry looked adorable in a Santa-red mini-dress with matching lipstick. Their performance was polished and fun from the first note. Perry added her own flavor to lines like "And curly head dolls that toddle and coo-o."
The stage was lavishly decorated, with no fewer than five 20-foot-tall Christmas trees decorated in fake snow, ornaments and Christmas lights. After their performance, the broadcast turned to vignettes of stars sharing holiday memories. The sibling trio talked about one year when they came down to find the tree relatively empty. However, their gift was outside -- in the form of a horse and carriage. How'd their parents ever top that the next year?
