Carrie Underwood revealed that she will release her first-ever Christmas album, My Gift, on Sept. 25, featuring a combination of beloved traditional favorites and original material. Carrie has previously released a number of holiday tracks over the years, including “Do You Hear What I Hear,” “O Holy Night,” “The First Noel” and more.
Carrie said about My Gift: “I’ve always wanted to make a Christmas album and it’s been a long time coming. I knew this would be my next music project after wrapping my tour last year, and I think it’s turned out to be the perfect time for an album like this, in this period of such personal and spiritual reflection. 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.”
My Gift will also be released on vinyl on Oct. 30. The track list, songwriters and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, Underwood shared the album’s new trailer featuring footage from the recording studio, which you can view at the link: here
