“My Gift features a combination of beloved traditional favorites celebrating the spiritual nature of the holiday, as well as several originals. Two of the new original songs are written by Underwood, frequent collaborator Brett James, and her Cry Pretty co-producer, David Garcia. In addition to a very special appearance by Underwood’s 5-year-old son, Isaiah Fisher, on the holiday classic that inspired the album title, “Little Drummer Boy,” My Gift also features her first collaboration with Emmy, GRAMMY, Oscar, and Tony Award-winner John Legend, on the original track, “Hallelujah,” written by Legend and Toby Gad.” – UMG Nashville Press Release

A Holly Dolly Christmas is Dolly’s first holiday album in 30 years. This festive collection of music includes treasured Christmas songs we all know and love, as well as five original tunes written by Dolly, one she co-wrote with Kent Wells and one written by her niece, Jada Star, with co-writer Barry Jobe. The album features incredible duets with some of Dolly’s dearest friends, including Michael Bublé, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon and Willie Nelson and also spotlights a special song with her brother, Randy Parton, and niece, Heidi Parton.” –

Ingrid Andress - Christmas Always Finds MeIngrid Andress – Christmas Always Finds Me

“In a year filled with uncertainty and instability, Warner Music Nashville/Atlantic Records’ standout singer/songwriter Ingrid Andress is offering a message of reassurance for this holiday season with her brand new song “Christmas Always Finds Me” Written with frequent collaborators Sam Ellis and Derrick Southerland, the lyrics recall times in her life when the love and warmth of the holiday season seemed very far away. And yet as the string sections swells over the delicate piano melody, Andress finds reassurance in the fact that Christmas always seems to find her, …even if I’m all alone / A million miles away from home / It shows up in a warm memory.” –

Dan + Shay - Christmas Isnt ChristmasDan + Shay – Christmas Isn’t Christmas

“This song is very close to our hearts. It was inspired by our families, and all the loved ones in our lives that make the holiday season special. This year has been tough on us all, and not being able to connect with others (especially our fans) in person has really taken an emotional toll. But, out of darkness always comes light, and we feel music has a magical way of bringing us together, even when we are far apart. Hopefully when you listen to this song, it brings you the same sense of comfort and hope that it brings us. As always, we are unbelievably grateful for each and every one of you, and send so much love.” @DanAndShay on Twitter

Maddie & Tae - We Need Christmas EPMaddie & Tae – We Need Christmas

In a year filled with so many dark moments, making our very first Christmas project was a shining light! We hope #WeNeedChristmas brings you the same amount of joy that recording it brought us. Cheers to all things merry and bright!@MaddieandTae on Twitter

Co-written by Clarkson and produced by longtime collaborator Jesse Shatkin, the future Christmas classic depicts a budding holiday romance with a throwback melody sure to bring people together this holiday season. “When Kelly sent me this song I was blown away by the soul and joy that it brought into my life the moment I heard it,” said Eldredge. “I couldn’t wait to go in and sing it, and once I heard our voices together I knew we landed something very special. I think we are going to be singing this song for a very long time and I’m glad I get to do that with one of the best vocalists on this earth.” – Atlantic Record Press Release
