Subscribe to Kicks 105 on

Alan Jackson and Chris Young lit up this year’s CMA Country Christmas stage with a beautiful performance of “There’s a New Kid in Town.”

The modern star and classic star united on the Grand Ole Opry stage to deliver a poignant rendition of the iconic Christmas song. With their voices complementing one another gracefully, Young and Jackson traded off vocals before harmonizing together on the chorus. Backed by a beautiful holiday themed set of sparkling Christmas trees and an equally mesmerizing orchestra, their version of “There’s a New Kid in Town” was both classic and understated, with Young showing off his impressive chops while Jackson proved why he is so loved by fans and such a staple in the genre.

There’s a new kid in town / And he’s lying in a manger down the road / There’s a new kid in town / But he’s just another baby I suppose / Heaven knows / There’s a new kid in town / Here in Bethlehem,” the two sing in harmony in the clip above, bringing a host of holiday spirit to the Christmas special.

Young and Jackson’s collaboration was just one of many lovely performances to take place during the 2017 installment of the holiday special, filmed at the famed Opry house in Nashville. Luke Bryan delivered a strong rendition of “O Holy Night,” while host Reba McEntire and Little Big Town joined forces for a harrowing version of “Mary, Did You Know?” Lady Antebellum, Trisha Yearwood, Brett Eldredge and Kelsea Ballerini also sang holiday classics such as “White Christmas,” “Silver Bells,” “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” and more.
