“I can say without a doubt that this project is unlike anything I’ve ever done before,” said Musgraves 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.” She went on to say “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.”
