'My Gift': Carrie Underwood's Holiday Album will Feature Guest Appearances from John Legend and Her Son

Carrie says a holiday record was 'a long time coming' for her

We may still be in the middle of a heatwave, but Carrie Underwood got fans in the holiday spirit this week when she revealed the track list for her upcoming Christmas album, My Gift.

The 11-track project -- the country superstar’s first-ever Christmas album -- is a treasure trove of seasonal classics, including “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Silent Night.”

But even more exciting was the news that My Gift will feature some very special guests. Carrie duets with pop superstar John Legend on a song called “Hallelujah,” which he also wrote. On another track, the classic “Little Drummer Boy,” Carrie turns her holiday collection into a family affair, enlisting her five-year-old son, Isaiah, to perform on the track.

My Gift is due out on September 25.

When she first announced the project last month, Carrie said that making a holiday record was “a long time coming” for her, adding that putting out the project during such a tumultuous year made My Gift even more meaningful.

“For me, it’s more important than ever to focus on the true meaning of Christmas in a project like this,” she explained. “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.”
