It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … for Rascal Flatts, that is. The country trio recently announced that they will be releasing a holiday album this year.

The band joins the likes of Chris Young, Garth Brooks and Kacey Musgraves, who have also revealed that they will be releasing holiday-themed albums later this year.

“We’re in the studio cutting new music. We’ve got a batch of songs that we feel really, really good about and we’re excited about cutting some new music,” Jay DeMarcus shared with media outlets at the band’s recent No. 1 party for “I Like The Sound of That” (quote via Sounds Like Nashville). “We’ve been concentrating on the Christmas record this summer and wrapping up a few things on that. Starting to mix here in a couple weeks.”

This will mark the band’s first Christmas record, something they’re excited for fans to hear.

“We’ve done some one offs here and there but this is the first full project we’ve ever done,” he adds. “It’s been fun. It’s a little odd to sing ‘Let It Snow’ in 100 degree weather, but it’s been fun.”

Rascal Flatts further explain that while the new record won’t include any original holiday songs, they will put their own Flatts version onto some Christmas standards.

“We just went all public domain. Some of our favorites and the classics,” Gary LeVox reveals. “We talked back and forth about it and a lot of people around Christmastime, that’s all they want is the classics. Of course we put our spin on it and it’s really exciting.”
