As previously reported, “Christmas Tonight” features guest vocals from Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and its accompanying music video stars actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. The video has obtained much attention since it posted on Barnes’ YouTube page, appearing on Variety’s website, Perez Hilton, Huffington Post’s entertainment front page and OK! Magazine’s website. In addition, “Christmas Tonight” was just added to rotation on CMT, CMT Pure and CMT online.
