Scotty McCreery makes his way onto the nice list with this gift for fans. The popular singer has added his touch to a holiday classic, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas."

McCreery's voice is inviting, but commanding as he recites the famous Christmas story  that dates back to the 1800s. The country star could have a future in voiceover work, couldn't he? His calming tone brings the story to life as a peaceful instrumental comprised of violin, piano and a soft jingle bell play in the background.

"'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house / Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse / The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, / In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there."

It's a different side of the "Five More Minutes" singer and a tradition we hope he'll continue. "I'm feeling jolly and full of the Christmas spirit today, so thought I'd share with you my reading of "'Twas The Night Before Christmas'," he explains in a Facebook post.

McCreery got engaged to girlfriend Gabi Dugal in September during a hike in their home state of North Carolina. The couple plan to have a destination wedding in the first half of 2018. The American Idol winner has also penned a song for his fiancé that will be included on his next album.
