The 2020 holiday season will sparkle a little brighter with the release of Carrie Underwood’s first Christmas album, My Gift. Announced Monday afternoon (7/20), the singer revealed that the project would officially arrive on September 25, 2020.
“I’ve always wanted to make a Christmas album and it’s been a long time coming,” shared the Oklahoma native. “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. For me, it’s more important than ever to focus on the true meaning of Christmas in a project like this. 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.”
