Brett Young is giving fans an early Christmas gift!
The country superstar announced the exciting news of his upcoming holiday duets project on Friday (Sept. 24).
Arriving on October 22 via Big Machine Label Group, Brett Young & Friends Sing Christmas Classics will feature 8-tracks, of which 7 are duets, that make up a star-studded list of collaborations. The project includes his previously released cover of “Silver Bells” as well as collaborations with Darius Rucker, Colbie Calliat, Maddie & Tae, Chris Tomlin, Dann Huff, Phil Wickman, and Sam Fischer. See the full track list below.
Aptly titled, these yule-tide pairings find Young trading stirring harmonies and celebrating the warmth of the holiday season with fresh takes on traditional songs.
“I’ve always known that I wanted to make a Christmas album one day, it was just a matter of figuring out how I could do something a little bit different,” Young shared in a press release. “We tapped into an old school, lo-fi sound with ‘Silver Bells,’ and knew we had the blueprint for a full album. It means the world that so many incredible artists who I respect were open to singing with me on the project… we don’t take the title ‘Brett Young and Friends’ lightly!”
To accompany the album announcement, Young shared the first single from the project, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” which features viral singer Fischer.
Additionally, later this year, Young will bring the album’s soulful stylings and must-see duets to television with CMT Crossroads Christmas: Brett Young & Friends. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.
