Gretchen Wilson to Release Holiday Album ‘Christmas in My Heart’
Gretchen Wilson's holiday album 'Christmas in My Heart' will be 'right on time' for this holiday season.
The release will feature ten tracks, including a merry mix of traditional carols, holiday favorites and a few future classics. Not only will Wilson's voice be showcased on the tracks, the songstress also produced the new album -- an exciting accomplishment for the 40-year-old.
“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” Wilson shares. “We really took our time and came up with a fun mix of classic songs and found some great new songs to record.”
The title track kicks off the album, but fans shouldn't think it's a record full of sentimental holiday songs -- there are several original songs that are a bit sassy, such as 'Santa, I've Been Naughty' and 'If You See Rudolph.'
Wilson's Christmas album is also family-friendly, with a little something for adults, as well as a few fun songs that kids will love. She sings her versions of 'I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,' 'Have a Holly Jolly Christmas,' and 'Nuttin’ for Christmas,' along with classic Christmas carols like 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,' 'Blue Christmas,' 'The Christmas Song' and 'Silent Night.'
Be sure to snatch up a copy and begin your Christmas shopping a little early. 'Christmas in My Heart' will be available come Oct. 8.
