"Christmas with Nashville" Digital Release Scheduled for November 4

The drama on ABC’s Nashville may be blazing hot but Big Machine Records is predicting a change in the temperature on November 4 with the digital release of "Christmas with Nashville." No strangers to the recording studio, the all-star cast who sings on the TV show each week, lent their voices to this special collection of their favorite holiday carols and a few original tunes.

Following a cameo on Nashville last season, Jay DeMarcus was tapped as producer for the project, again joining forces with the talented actors. The Rascal Flatts’ bassist, who also produced much of the supergroup's "Rewind" album, told Rolling Stone Country, “it's refreshing to know that [the actors] representing us on the show are authentic.” The outlet also exclusively revealed the track listing.

1. “Santa Baby”
Clare Bowen | Written by Joan Javits, Tony Springer, Phil Springer
2. “Blue Christmas”
Charles Esten featuring Vince Gill | Written by Billy Hayes, Jay Johnson
3. “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”
Jonathan Jackson | Written by Ellie Greenwich, Jeff Barry, Phil Spector

Set against the backdrop of the Nashville music scene, NASHVILLE follows Rayna Jaymes, a star at her peak, and Juliette Barnes, who is on the rise. When their record label sends them out on tour together after a hit single, both women face personal and professional challenges as they navigate their paths as artists and individuals. Surrounding them and often complicating their lives are their family, friends and, in some cases, lovers, as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business.

Season 2 premieres on Wednesday, September 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Will the car crash victims from the Season 1 finale survive? Check out a brand new NASHVILLE promo below:
