Vince Gill and Amy Grant

Country Music Hall of Famer and Oklahoma native Vince Gill and his wife, best-selling contemporary Christian singer Amy Grant, will be featured giving a lovely performance of  “Breath Of Heaven (Mary’s Song)” during the TV special “CMA Country Christmas,” airing from 8 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1  on the ABC Television Network.

It will be Gill’s second duet on the televised concert special: The Norman-born, Oklahoma City-bred singer/songwriter/guitarist also performs a special duet with Miss Piggy of “The Muppets” fame.

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles will host the two-hour holiday extravaganza with performances from Rascal Flatts (which includes Picher-bred guitarist Joe Don Rooney), “American Idol” runner-up Lauren Alaina, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, “American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, Brian Setzer with special guest Brad Paisley, Sugarland and Keith Urban.

‘American Idol’ runner-up Lauren Alaina will perform ‘My Grown Up Christmas List’ during next month’s ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special, which airs on ABC. The show was taped last Thursday in Nashville, and a fan video captured the 17-year-old taking on the song that was first made famous in country circles by Amy Grant.

“I feel like Christmas came early for me this year,” Alaina says, “but if Santa Claus wants to bring me some makeup I don’t think I’ll argue with him.” The big man does indeed have a tough task in topping the ‘Georgia Peaches’ singer’s year that’s included reality show fame, a recording contract, a tour of the country and a fire engine red Ford Mustang.

Alaina steps away from the group to perform the Christmas classic. She looks radiant in a sleeveless black gown, and her rendition of the song shows real vocal maturity. Scotty McCreery, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill, Keith Urbanand Faith Hill are among the other performers on the special. It will supposedly air again on Dec. 17.
