Kelsea Ballerini sizzled during her performance of “The Christmas Song”—aka “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”—during last night’s (Nov. 28) CMA Country Christmas.

The tune, which was penned by Mel Torme and Robert Wells, was originally recorded by Nat King Cole in 1946 and has become a Christmas staple with covers by a who’s who of stars, including Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Aretha Franklin, Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, George Strait and more.

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
