This Would Be the Fourth Movie in the ‘Time for’ Series
Blake Shelton has executive produced three movies for Hallmark and this will be his fourth one.

The first movie is about Cara Hill, a small town businesswoman, who ends up traveling to Tulsa with Heath Sawyer, a country music star, when their flight is canceled. Both are dealing with their own secret struggles, which come to light during their journey. The movie’s based on Shelton’s song, “Time for Me to Come Home,” which he wrote in 2012 with his mom, Dorothy Shackleford. The song was featured on Shelton’s 2012 album, “Cheers, It’s Christmas.”
The first movie starred Megan Park and Josh Henderson.
The second movie in the series was about a woman returning home after her husband passed away, who meets a veteran on a holiday journey. That movie starred Alison Sweeney and Lucas Bryant.
Lacey Chabert and Stephen Huszar starred in the third movie, which was about five guests who were mysteriously invited to an inn for Christmas.
