This year, forget Miracle on 34th Street because Kelly Clarkson will be hosting a Miracle on Broadway. The pop-country superstar will be holding a Christmas benefit concert and has invited just a few of her famous country friends to join her. Looking at the lineup, it’s safe to assume that Clarkson was on Santa’s “Nice List” this year.
At this point, I’m assuming she kind of has to invite Reba due to that whole daughter-in-law thing, but no one’s complaining. Also performing will be Clarkson’s new BFF and “Prizefighter” duet partner, Trisha Yearwood. Mr. Yearwood, Garth Brooks (Yes, I said GARTH!), will be joining in on the festivities, as will Ronnie Dunn, Kacey Musgraves, Nashville’s Charles Esten, Hayley Williams of Paramore and Meghan Trainor. More guests are expected to be announced.
This concert, which is exactly what I would’ve asked for for Christmas this year, will take place on Saturday December 20th at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. That venue just happens to be on Broadway, hence the name of the event. Well-played, Team Clarkson. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, October 18th.
“I love my adopted hometown of Nashville with all of my heart and I am so honored to be able to give back to the community alongside some of my favorite artists and friends for my first annual Miracle on Broadway benefit concert!” says Clarkson. “I thank all of the artists joining me, as well as the people of Nashville for making me feel so welcome over the last 7 years I have called it home!”
All proceeds for the event will benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, Monroe Harding Children’s Home, Second Harvest Food Bank and Thistle Farms.
And even though it’s October, get in the holiday spirit with Kelly, Reba and Trisha doing an epic rendition of “Silent Night” here!
