Dan + Shay shared the bill with Reba McEntire, who also served as host, at CMA Country Christmas, which was taped last night (Thursday, September 27th) before a live audience in Nashville. Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney are fans of Reba's, but it was Shay's one-year-old son, Asher, who became fast friends with the icon during rehearsals earlier this week.
Reba shared a couple sweet pictures of herself sharing some tasty treats with Asher on Wednesday (September 26th) writing, "I made a new friend today. Asher Mooney. We’re foodie pals!!!"
CMA Country Christmas is set to air on ABC closer to the holidays. In addition to Reba and Dan + Shay, the show will feature performances by Tony Bennett, Brett Eldredge, Amy Grant, Diana Krall, Dustin Lynch, Martina McBride, Old Dominion, Brad Paisley, Michael W. Smith, and Brett Young.
