Little Big Town let their lush harmonies flow on their rendition of the classic 'I'll be Home for Christmas' at the 'CMA Country Christmas' special.

The four members sang the song as a special tribute to the men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Cutaway shots to service men and women in the audience showed that several were teary-eyed as they watched  Little Big Town -- each tastefully dressed in evening attire -- sing the song about missing family during the holidays.

The television audience and presumably those at the ceremony also saw photos of various service members flash onto the screen during the performance.

At the conclusion of the performance, several members of the military that were in the audience were shown standing and applauding enthusiastically as the group, led on this song by Karen Fairchild, nodded to the audience.
