27 years after signing her first record deal with Mercury Nashville, Terri Clark is teaming up with the label once again to release her very first Christmas album. Titled It’s Christmas… Cheers!, the record will be released on September 25, 2020 and feature 10 tracks.
“I resisted making and releasing a Christmas album for many years even though I’m a big Christmas person and love the music of the season. It’s been done by the best in so many amazing ways and I wanted to wait until I felt I could make it special, be excited about it, and do it justice in my own way,” Clark explained in a press release. “Having The Time Jumpers to collaborate with and the wonderful guest artists featured – it did just that. I am eager for everyone to hear the record that was almost 2 years in the making but took 25 years to get around to.”
On It’s Christmas… Cheers!, Clark enlisted the help of famed band The Time Jumpers to play on each of the tracks. Ricky Skaggs, Dierks Bentley, Vince Gill, The Oak Ridge Boys, Pam Tillis and Suzy Bogguss also make guest appearances.
Clark first signed with Mercury Nashville (a label under the Universal Music Group umbrella) in 1993 at the age of 25. Her last album with the label was released 15 years ago.
