Dolly Parton, Trisha Yearwood to Headline 2016 ‘Christmas in Rockefeller Center’ Classic
Kelly, Parton, and more of music's brightest will headline the annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center classic, according to the network. Josh Groban, Sarah McLachlan, Tony Bennett and Trisha Yearwood are also on the ticket, and Today Show anchors Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Hoda Kotb will host the event.
And the merriment will encircle a particularly prized spruce. This year's tree, straight from Oneonta, New York, is 94-feet tall, weighs nearly 15 tons and will be decorated by tens of thousands of strung-up lights. Deck the halls, indeed.
The 2016 show will air at 8 PM EST on NBC, and a special live-hour event will precede the concert at 7 PM EST. Think you'll tune in? Tell us what you're excited to see!
