Kelsea Ballerini Stuns With Festive Performance Of 'Santa Baby'

Kelsea Ballerini gave a fun and flirty performance of the holiday classic, "Santa Baby" at this year's CMA Country Christmas special on Monday (November 30).

"I picked ‘Santa Baby’ because I really wanted to do something kind of fun and light on the show this year, obviously it’s been a crazy year, very heavy, and so I kind of just wanted to swing that back over to the other side and be fun tonight," she said ahead of her performance.

During the show, the "Hole In The Bottle" singer also shared her favorite family Christmas tradition, "Jammy Day." This is a day where she and her family wear matching pajama's all day no matter where they go.

In addition to Ballerini, Dan + Shay, Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town, Lady A, Gabby Barrett, Tim McGraw , and Darius Rucker with violinist and singer-songwriter, Lindsey Stirling also performed during the television special this year.

Paul Miller directed this year's special, while Robert Deaton served as the executive producer and writer.

"The idea for this year's show was to do a throwback of the great Christmas specials of the 1960s and 1970s," Deaton said in a previous statement. "Andy Williams, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra all had classic Christmas specials where the viewer was invited into the homes of the host to celebrate the holiday like a best friend coming to visit. That was what we wanted to create for this year's show. Instead of a big flashy production, we took a page from those iconic specials to say, 'Come relax, and let's celebrate the holidays together.'"
