This year, country superstar Eric Church celebrates his holiday season with a performance inside a venue unlike any other — the White House.

Church — the 2020 CMA Awards' Entertainer of the Year known for hit songs "Springsteen," "Talladega" and "Mr. Misunderstood" — sings at the White House this month as part of an upcoming musical holiday special, "In Performance at the White House: Spirit of the Season." He joins a lineup including Norah Jones, the Jonas Brothers, Andrea Bocelli with Matteo and Virginia Bocelli, Billy Porter, Camila Cabello and Pentatonix, among others.

"In Performance" debuts at 7 p.m. CST Dec. 21 on PBS, per a news release.

Eric Church performs during a taping for the 56th ACM Awards at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn., Friday, April 16, 2021.

The show films Dec. 11-14 inside the Blue Room, East Room and State Dining Room, the release said. The show plans to air remarks from President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden, according to television trade publication Deadline; viewers can expect to see White House holiday décor on display throughout the special.

Actor Jennifer Garner hosts the holiday program.

In addition to a-list entertainers, the hour-long special features appearances from the U.S. Marine Band and Northwell Health Nurse Choir, a vocal collective of medical workers.

A tireless arena performer who advocated earlier this year for audiences to get vaccinated as a means of returning safely to the road, Church plays this Friday and Saturday at the Anthem in Washington D.C. The shows come in support of "Heart & Soul," a triple-album project he released last April.
