Lady Antebellum, Colbie
Caillat and Sammy Kershaw are among the artists releasing new Christmas
albums this week.
The three members of Lady A wrote the title track to On This Winter’s Night. Favorite tunes
include “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” The trio co-produced the album with longtime collaborator
Caillat’s Christmas in the Sand offers a duet with Brad
Paisley on “Merry Christmas Baby.” The pop singer notes, “We did it in the style of Bruce
Springsteen, where it has a little blues-rock-country vibe to it.”
Kershaw’s A Sammy Klaus Christmas includes
a Cajun-influenced rendition of “The Night Before Christmas.” Meanwhile bluegrass singer Donna Ulisse shares the meaningful
story of Christmas on her album, All the Way to Bethlehem.
Other new, non-holiday releases this week include
Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson’s Wreck and Ruin, Billy
