Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles Opens ‘CMA Country Christmas’ With Glitzy Performance of ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’

The second annual ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special opened with host Jennifer Nettles wearing sequins, ruffles and tails. The well dressed country starlet looked glamorous backed by a dashing dance troupe swinging candy cane striped canes in perfect harmony as she sang ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You.’

The Sugarland singer was putting on the ritz with old fashioned theatrical choreography and costuming. Stylistically she held true to the original version but definitely put her unique spin on some of the punctuations and accents. For a moment, fans might have thought she was wearing a dress — an outfit Nettles is rarely seen in. But the mistletoe red satin ballerina top only went to her hips, and she finished the look with matching sequin leggings, six-inch long snowflake earrings and a silver top hat that could have been pulled from the New Year’s Eve department.

“All I want is for everyone to have a wonderful time tonight,” Nettles said as she finished the song and introduced the second annual ABC special. After an especially trying year for her and bandmate Kristian Bush, one could tell she appreciated being able to focus on all that’s right in the world during this holiday season.
