Chris Young loves all kinds of music, and with his song choice on tonight's (Tuesday, Dec. 3rd) CMA Country Christmas special, he pays homage to a combination of genres with "The Christmas Song." He tells us: ["I love it! I mean, just studying jazz as well as country coming up and classical music and everything, there's a lot of songs that you end up cutting or singing during the Christmas season that are not just one four five, so to speak. There's a lot of like passing chords and interesting melodies and, to me, 'The Christmas Song' was always one of my favorites because of that, and it's fun for me to sing."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . me to sing.)

CMA Country Christmas airs on ABC beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

The show, which is hosted by Trisha Yearwood, also features performances by Tori Kelly, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Kristin Chenoweth, for KING & COUNTRY, Chris Janson, Rascal Flatts, Runaway June, CeCe Winans, Brett Young and Trisha.
