With Christmas just around the corner, artists are getting ready to line the shelves with their holiday album drops. Sara Evans has announced that her new holiday album, At Christmas, will hit shelves on November 17th, just in time to find its way into your stocking or under your tree.
Evans assures her loyal fans that even though it’s a holiday album, she has collaborated with producer Mark Bright to ensure that everything sounds “just like my music” even with “a lot of electric guitar.” Bright has worked with Evans on two of her seven studio albums, including her most recent project, Slow Me Down, and 2005’s release, Real Fine Place. Evans also commented that even though At Christmas was a quick holiday project, recorded just last month, the album contains “some of the best vocals I’ve ever done because I was so hurried.”
Making sure that the holidays are all about family, Evans didn’t have to think twice about having her two daughters Olivia and Audrey also contribute their voices for her rendition of “12 Days of Christmas.” The holiday album is set to feature nine classic Christmas tunes including the Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane song “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and one brand new song to add to the holiday song book. The title track, “At Christmas” was penned by Shane Stevens and Toby Lightman. Stevens previously penned a Christmas tune with singer/songwriter Sherrié Austin, “Naughty or Nice”.
Her busy schedule includes an appearance on ABC Television Network’s hit drama, Nashville, set to air October 29th, promoting her most recent country album Slow Me Down, and a handful of tour dates. Evans will also be featured on the upcoming Doobie Brothers release, Southbound. Additionally, she will take some time to perform “Go Tell it on the Mountain” on the CMA Country Christmas TV Special on November 17th. Additionally, Idina Menzel, whose album, Holiday Wishes, is available now, Brett Eldredge, Lucy Hale, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Jennifer Nettles, LeAnn Rimes, and Carrie Underwood will also be performing on the CMA Country Christmas TV Special. At Christmas is available for preorder exclusively through Walmart.
