Issued by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, it is on sale online and at retail outlets across the country.
Jeff Meier, SVP, Programming and General Manager of getTV, said, “For our first TV special, ‘A Nashville Christmas,’ we brought together all these legendary performers for a holiday concert, and we were thrilled with the results. Now we’re excited that viewers at home can enjoy these inspiring performances whether or not they have getTV and have the option to watch as many times as they want, without commercials. This concert is the perfect backdrop for all holiday festivities. It also makes for an ideal, inexpensive gift the entire family can enjoy.”
This special DVD edition of “A Nashville Christmas” includes material not in the TV version, including Pam Tillis’ humorous and heartwarming recollection of a childhood Christmas spent at home with her dad, the late country superstar Mel Tillis, and an extended introduction and performance of “Silent Night” by Dailey & Vincent. Viewers should also keep an eye out for Kyla Jade, a backup singer on the show, who would later become a finalist on “The Voice.”
An homage to the classic variety shows getTV viewers love, this concert special features the music legends performing traditional carols, pop standards, and songs of the season. Wynonna demonstrates her soulful stylings on “O Holy Night” and “Let’s Make A Baby King.” Living legend Harris delights with “The First Noel,” “Coat Of Many Colors” and “Light Of The Stable,” a song she first recorded in 1975. Grammy-winner Tillis rocks out with “Santa Claus Baby” and duets with gospel singer Ashley Cleveland on the powerful “Take A Walk Through Bethlehem.” Hitmaker Lorrie Morgan offers a jazzy interpretation of “The Christmas Song.” And bluegrass ensemble Dailey & Vincent harmonizes on “Silent Night” and “That Spirit of Christmas.”
A highpoint of the evening is Wynonna’s first-ever duet with Harris on the hymn “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem.”
