Carrie Underwood Wants to ‘Focus on the True Meaning of Christmas’ in First Christmas Album

By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer

Carrie Underwood wants to put God at the forefront of her upcoming Christmas album.

“For me, it’s more important than ever to focus on the true meaning of Christmas in a project like this,” she said. “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 mother of two released the full track list, and it features several holiday songs that honor God, as well as a song that features her 5-year-old son, Isaiah.

Classics like “Silent Night,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Away in a Manger,” and “Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee” are just some of the songs on the new album.

Isaiah’s voice can be heard in the song “Little Drummer Boy.”

Other songs include “Let There Be Peace,” “Sweet Baby Jesus,” “Hallelujah,” “O Holy Night,” “Mary, Did You Know,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Back in July, Underwood released a statement about her upcoming music.

“It’s been a long time coming,” she said. “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.”

The 11-song album, titled “My Gift,” will hit stands on September 25.
