Country fans won't want to miss this! Carrie Underwood is bringing a Christmas special of her own to HBO Max. The special is titled after her album "My Gift" and will feature friend and fellow artist John Legend. Underwood's concert full of holiday songs is available for streaming now!

The two Christmas episodes will bring together past winners along with the coaches Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, and John Legend. The special episodes will air December 16 and 22nd on NBC.
Also on NBC - Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical! 💫
Though live theater has yet to be able to return, NBC is bringing Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical onto your screen where you can view the show safely from home. This greener than green theatrical event stars "Glee" actor Matthew Morrison as the Grinch. Morrison said the show will be a nice escape from the stresses of the pandemic:
"While the pandemic presents some challenges in bringing the stage musical to life, we're putting together a really special show."
NBC's The Grinch airs Wednesday, December 9th.
A Holly Dolly Christmas 🎤
Yet another queen of Christmas, Dolly Parton has been plenty busy this time of year. Between her new album, Netflix film, and a television special...she is looking forward to a much deserved holiday break. On top of all of that, she is also being applauded for her generous contributions to helping find a Covid vaccine. Correspondent Sam Alex joined us from Nashville to tell us more:
"This has an amazing story. Back in April, Dolly made a one million dollar donation for COVID-19 research to Vanderbilt University here in Nashville. And we know that money has led to the research for the vaccine Moderna- which hopefully we'll all receive soon."
Dolly Parton's new TV special, "A Holly Dolly Christmas," will air Sunday at 8:30/7:30c on CBS and feature songs from her new album.
