Is there anything Carrie Underwood can't do? This year the singer, author, and sometimes beekeeper is also kicking off Christmas three months early with her first-ever, full-length holiday album, My Gift, which will be released on September 25.
“I’ve always wanted to make a Christmas album and it’s been a long time coming,” Underwood revealed on her website. After wrapping up her Cry Pretty Tour 360 performances last year, the singer says it was the perfect time for her to focus on making it.
"For me, it’s more important than ever to focus on the true meaning of Christmas in a project like this. Even though it has been a tough year for all of us, sometimes I feel like the greatest realizations can be inspired by the most difficult times, and make us more grateful for the things we do have and for what truly matters.”
The album includes a mix of traditional holiday classics (including a version of "Little Drummer Boy" featuring Underwood's son Isaiah, and a duet with John Legend!) as well as original songs. The singer shared the track list with fans via Instagram:
The songs on #MyGift are a mix of Christmas classics that are close to my heart and new songs that I hope will become close to yours. The album also includes a couple of very special guests…I can’t wait for you all to hear “Hallelujah” written by and sung with the incredible @JohnLegend, and a very special version of “Little Drummer Boy” featuring my own little drummer boy, Isaiah. September 25 can’t come soon enough! #MyGift ✨ 🎁

Of course, this isn't Carrie's first time performing Christmas classics—for example, she performed a memorable version of "Last Christmas" 14 years ago as part of TNT's Christmas in Washington event—but it does mark her first official full-length holiday project. And her fans aren't the only ones who are especially excited for this new holiday adventure of hers. We can't wait to hear it!
