I saw them last year as a Christmas present with my dad . I told him and he hadn’t been to this particular concert arena in probably 20+ years and he was just floored at the sheer beauty of the boys and just ooing and awing verbally and the concert blew his mind! He literally was airdropping with them and to this day when the song comes on the radio he air drums in the car. He loves it! best concert ever ! They bring it like I’m never seen any concerts ever bring it before.

Our Kingdom Life Adelaide church band played the for King and Country version of Little Drummer Boy and it was BRILLIANT. The drummer was a just turned 13 year old boy called Aaron who is blessed by God to play drums plus other instruments, sings incredibly, acts really well and most of all, he is so in love with Jesus. What a great day. Another blessing happened during our service – my sister’s home was saved from the fires around Birdwood by about 50 meters. Praise Jesus.

It isn’t country music if it uses electric guitars, synthesizers or other “rock n roll” instruments.

Where’s the fiddle? Where’s the acoustic guitar? Where’s the banjo? Where’s the harmonica? Where’s the mandolin? Where’s the steel guitar?

This is rock-n-roll. Although very good and very cool (I like rock-n-roll) – it has NO PLACE at the CMAs.

All rock-n-roll music should be disqualified for any kind of performance at the CMAs….

They are a Christian pop band so that’s why they didnt use any of the instruments you think is country. And it was a CMA Christmas Show not an awards show and them being a CHRISTIAN band, they should have been there. They performed that song better than any band ever has, especially a country musician who would have made it as boring as they did every song they sang that night.

You’re absolutely right! CeCe Winans, Tori Kelly and Kristen Chenoweth are the core of country music.

This is a Christian music group, this is a Christmas CMA program, just enjoy it.

I was thinking that as well. I think they all just assumed, because of how nice it was, they could get away with it.

Brad Paisley and Keith Urban play electric guitars. Are you saying they’re not country? Such a closed mind on what is country music.
