Carrie Underwood has another present for fans this holiday season. After topping charts with her first Christmas album, My Gift, she’s now unwrapped a special bonus track titled “Favorite Time of Year.”

Written by Underwood with Hillary Lindsey and Chris DeStefano, the upbeat track is 100-percent original and a joyful addition to Christmas playlists. Full of classic-Christmas sounds and the fond memories of a season Underwood truly looks forward to, it’s both heartwarming and danceable — and available only through Amazon. Fans can stream the track individually or get it as a bonus track on Amazon Music’s version of My Gift now.

“‘Favorite Time of Year’ is a joyful, super happy and fun Christmas song because it is about all of the things that make you happy this time of year, and it puts you in the mood to celebrate,” Underwood says in a press statement. “I can’t help but smile when I sing it, it just brightens my day and I’m thrilled to share it today only on Amazon Music.”

This musical gift won’t stay under the tree for long, though, as “Favorite Time of Year” is also part of a new campaign for Ring doorbells. It’s featured in a cheery new commercial starring Underwood which will begin across national TV and online, and there’s more.

Carrie Underwood is encouraging fans to make their own “Favorite Time of the Year” clips, challenging them to capture the caroling on their Ring video doorbells and share the fun with friends and family online. Stay tuned this Christmas season for more from the country superstar, who will next appear on HBO Max for an all-new holiday special featuring songs from My Gift and a live orchestra in December.
