As Amy Grant and Vince Gill prepare for a 12-date run of their "Christmas at the Ryman" residency at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, Grant can't help but feel nostalgic.

Grant, 61, noted that the beloved tradition has only brought her and Gill, whom she married in 2000, closer together.

"There's not a better place to make music. I love doing all those shows with Vince. No kidding, I fall in love with him all over again every year, just how he plays, his wit," she told ABC Audio.

Grant continued of the 64-year-old Gill, "When he's not on stage, he's a pretty quiet person, and so getting to see that side of him is really beautiful."

The "Baby, Baby" singer also shared how seeing generations of people who have been attending the show since they were children makes the experience even more heartfelt for her and Gill.

"We've done this so long. I have seen kids, even my own kids, be young in the audience and now a whole generation's come and gone since we started doing these shows," Grant said.

The couple has made their Christmas show a holiday staple. Over the years, they've delighted crowds with performances of classics like "O Holy Night," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Let it Snow," and originals like Grant's "Tennessee Christmas."

"Christmas at the Ryman" begins Dec. 13.
