Halloween festivities will come to a close this weekend, but the holiday season is just beginning when the calendar switches to November. The first taste of Christmas will arrive next weekend for the people lucky enough to score tickets to the "CMA Country Christmas 2015" concert event on Nov. 7 at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. The show will be taped and air on ABC in December.
Tickets for the event are sold out on the Grand Ole Opry site, but tickets can still be found elsewhere. However, the prices are not cheap. Tickets on StubHub are going for anywhere between $385 up to $495 a seat. Vivid Seats has tickets for a little cheaper, but not by much as prices range from $347 to $427.
For those who were able to get tickets, doors will open at 5 p.m. CST and will close at 6 p.m. CST. If you arrive after 6:15 p.m. your ticket will be forfeited, according to the Opry site. Concert goers are encouraged to wear warm/dark colors since the show will eventually air on television. People are asked to avoid light colors, logos and sequins. Producers have the authority to move seats of attendees if they are not properly dressed.
Children under the age of five are not recommended to attend the concert and CMA asks that all cell phones be silenced during the performances. They also ask for no flash photography as well.
Some of the biggest names in country music will be in attendance to perform Christmas classics, but the official performers for this year's special have not yet been announced. Last year, the "CMA Country Christmas" two-hour special was hosted by Jennifer Nettles and featured performances by Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Sara Evans, Lucy Hale, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Idina Menzel, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith Brad Paisley, Steven Tyler and Carrie Underwood.
The "CMA 2015 Country Christmas" will air on ABC Thursday Dec. 3 at 9 p.m. EST and be hosted by Nettles for the sixth time.
