CMA has partnered with DISNEY|ABC TELEVISION GROUP (DATG) and TOYS FOR TOTS to distribute gifts collected for children in need at the taping of "CMA COUNTRY CHRISTMAS" on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7th. For the third consecutive year, audience members at the live taping are being asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate to help make the holidays brighter for NASHVILLE-area children.
"Our artist community is extremely generous, and so are our fans," explained CMA CEO SARAH TRAHERN. "It is our goal to make sure not child goes without a present this CHRISTMAS, and we are grateful to our network partner ABC and TOYS FOR TOTS for helping to make this dream come true for children everywhere."
Volunteers will be on-site at BRIDGESTONE ARENA plaza to collect the toys beginning at 5p (CT) the night of the taping. TENNESSEE TITANS tight end DELANIE WALKER will be on hand to assist with the collection efforts. "Every child deserves to feel loved and appreciated, especially at CHRISTMAS," stated WALKER. "Every donated and unwrapped toy collected on FRIDAY will go directly to helping a child's holiday be a little brighter. I'm counting on all the TITANS fans to help me in supporting the COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION and TOYS FOR TOTS."
JENNIFER NETTLES returns again this year to host the show featuring performances from CARRIE UNDERWOOD, BRAD PAISLEY, ALAN JACKSON, LITTLE BIG TOWN, and more. The show will air on ABC-TV on MONDAY, DECEMBER 1st at 8p (ET).
