“'Christmas At Belmont' is one of our favorite projects here at NPT,” said Kevin Crane, president and CEO of Nashville Public Television. “Working with the talented students of Belmont’s School of Music, as well as the dedicated faculty and stellar guest hosts, is a highlight of the holiday season. This year, with the spotlight on Music City after Ken Burns’ Country Music, we are especially pleased to bring this Nashville tradition to our fellow PBS stations.”

Belmont University President Dr. Bob Fisher said Belmont is delighted to have Winans and Smith, both former Belmont trustees, serve as guest performers for this year’s concert:

“These artists have been longtime supporters of the University and our students,” he said. “We’re incredibly grateful for our partnership with Nashville Public Television that brings the tremendous talent of our world-class School of Music to a national audience.”
