As Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles remarked, Martina McBride has one of the best voices in music — not just in country, but in all genres. McBride practically floated as she sang her rendition of ‘Please Come Home for Christmas’ on the Dec. 1 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special, which we’d argue could be the performance of the evening.

Just before the performance, the proud mother of three sat on a living room couch with her beautiful daughters, chatting about Christmases past and the holiday music that her kids love to listen to, like the classic Frank Sinatra … and Justin Bieber‘s new Christmas release.

Then, sporting a gorgeous burgundy evening gown, McBride unveiled the notable tune as if she had written it. She wore her signature glowing smile, too, as she sparkled among faux snow-covered trees and a backdrop of mock mountains.

Following the song, Nettles, who hosted the event, summed McBride’s performance up best when she asked the audience, “Now how are we going to follow that?”
