The 86th annual lighting of New York City’s famous tree in Rockefeller Center will be celebrated Nov. 28 (and aired by NBC at 8PM). The special will feature a star-studded roster of musical performers, with country music represented by Brett Eldredge, Martina McBride and Kellie Pickler (who will be performing with vocal group Pentatonix). Other artists performing include Diana Ross, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall and John Legend.

Eldredge recently released a deluxe version of his 2016 Christmas album, Glow, which features five new tracks, and McBride also has a new holiday album out, called It’s The Holiday Season.
