The country superstars performed a beautiful rendition of ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’ at the 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special, which aired on Dec. 2. Their gorgeous harmony honored the heroes who were serving in the military and even had a slideshow of families reuniting after spending time overseas.
Lady Antebellum lit up the stage with one of the most powerful and emotional performances of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” at the 2013 CMA Country Christmas special show. The country trio, made up of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood, brought the perfect amount of touching emotion and holiday spirit to the powerful song.

Lady Antebellum took on a huge Christmas classic for their performance, and they did not disappoint!
The group added their signature soulful spin to the hit, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” and their voices really sounded wonderful as they harmonized together, backed by a full orchestra.
During the song, a slideshow of photos came up on the big screen showing families hugging, crying, and reuniting with their loved ones who serve in the military — the true heroes, as host Jennifer Nettles put it.
Lady Antebellum Supports Other Acts At ‘CMA Country Christmas’ Special
Even though country fans were eagerly awaiting Lady A’s own CMA Country Christmas show performance, the band members themselves were excited to see the other acts in the special perform in the show. “It’s a lot of fun for us to see Rascal Flatts and Jake Owen and Jennifer Nettles all here performing,” said the band’s musician, Dave Haywood. “You know, we’ve done a Christmas record ourselves, and a lot of these country artists have as well. So, it’s neat to see everyone’s take on a lot of these Christmas classics.” What an awesome, supportive attitude!
