Kacey Musgraves will celebrate the holidays with the debut of her star-studded Amazon Christmas special The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show. 

Debuting on Nov. 29 on Amazon Prime, the special will include comedic and musical moments and feature performances by Fred Armisen ("Silent Night"), Camila Cabello ("Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"), Zooey Deschanel ("Mele Kalikimaka"), Lana Del Rey ("I'll Be Home for Christmas") and James Corden (""Let it Snow"). Leon Bridges will join Musgraves for their duet "Present Without a Bow," which was featured on Musgraves' 2016 Christmas album A Very Kacey Christmas. Troye Sivan will debut new song "Glittery" on the special.

The special will be narrated by Dan Levy, the star of the comedy series Schitt's Creek.

In addition to special celebrity appearances, including Kendall Jenner,  the show will feature an appearance by the most special guest of all: Kacey Musgrave's Nana.

"I can say without a doubt that this project is unlike anything I've ever done before," Musgraves said in a statement. "What started as the small seed of an idea one night over a year ago has turned into something I'm so proud of. Some truly brilliant comedic and musical guests are featured in the show -- as well as my own grandma. My vision was to bring my old Christmas album to life visually and create a modern and fashionable, fresh take on a classic format. It's a nostalgic, Wes Anderson-inspired reimagining of the holidays. It's heartfelt, funny, and most of all, real. I can't wait to finally share."

The "Space Cowboy" singer says she wants to update classic holiday specials -- with a twist.

"My vision was to bring my old Christmas album to life visually and create a modern and fashionable, fresh take on a classic format. It's a nostalgic, Wes Anderson-inspired reimagining of the holidays," Musgraves continued. "It's heartfelt, funny, and most of all, real. I can't wait to finally share."

Musgraves' holiday album A Very Kacey Christmas features a collaboration with Willie Nelson on "A Willie Nice Christmas" and Texas swing band The Quebe Sisters ("Let it Snow," "Mele Kalikimaka").

Musgraves will team up with Nelson again for a duet on the 2019 CMA Awards, which will air on Nov. 13 on ABC.
