Cracker Barrel and Martina McBride have one amazing contest for deserving families this year. Last week, the Tennessee-based restaurant chain and country music star announced a unique opportunity called the Joy of Christmas contest.

Going on now through November 11th, you can nominate people you know for a chance to win a trip to Nashville to meet Martina McBride, attend "The Joy of Christmas Tour" concert at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center on November 30th, and indulge in a Cracker Barrel-catered event. The winners will also receive round-trip airfare, two-night hotel accomodations, and an $1,000 Visa gift card to cover expenses throughout the weekend, among other treats. From the nominations, five families will get this unique chance to toast the holiday season with McBride herself in Music City. You can nominate families and learn more details at crackerbarrel.com/joyofchristmas.
