CMA Country Christmas does more than spread holiday song and spirit. Members of the live audience were encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the taping to be distributed to needy children in the Nashville area by the non-profit group Generosity. In 2012, the group collected more than 5,000 toys.

  1. Greatly disappointed with the production. The mouths and the music did not move together!! Very poor production. Amazed with the product in this day and age of technology! Terrible! The performers deserve better!
