Tim McGraw performed his go to holiday song “It Wasn’t His Child” on Monday (Nov. 30) night during CMA Country Christmas.

“I’m performing ‘It Wasn’t His Child.’ It was written by Skip Ewing, who I’m a big fan of and I’ve known this song, gosh, since the late ’80s I guess and I’ve performed it several times at Christmas cause it’s always one of my go-to Christmas songs to perform and I always love it. I love the message of what it says and the story behind it,” McGraw explained ahead of the performance. “Just so well written, Skip’s a great writer.”


The 11th annual holiday show was filmed this past September, without a live audience and is a production of the Country Music Association.

CMA Country Christmas also featured performances from Kelsea Ballerini, Dan + Shay, Gabby Barrett, Lady A, Little Big Town, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett and Darius Rucker with Lindsey Stirling.

Hosted by one of country music’s most beloved couples, Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins. The one-hour CMA Country Christmas special aired on Monday, November 30 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
