Gretchen Wilson will have a dream come true this month, when her debut Holiday album Christmas In My Heart is released on October 8th. The 10-song cd will include a mix of traditional carols, holiday favorites and a few future classics. Produced by Gretchen, the new album will be the third album released this year on her Redneck Records label.
“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Gretchen. “We really took our time and came up with a fun mix of classic songs and found some great new songs to record.”
The Greg Barnhill-composed title track kicks of the album and is followed by the fun “Santa I’ve Been Naughty” written by Robert Simbeck and Frank Michels. The slightly irreverent “If You See Rudolph,” by Trent Willmon, Jenee Fleenor and Rob Byus, rounds out the original offerings on the cd.
Kids will love Gretchen’s versions of “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas,” “Have A Holly Jolly Christmas” and “Nuttin’ For Christmas,” and her renditions of classics like “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Blue Christmas,” “The Christmas Song” and “Silent Night” are sure to delight listeners throughout the holiday season.
Christmas In My Heart was mastered using the sparkling state-of-the-art “Mastered For iTunes” format – a first for a Gretchen Wilson release – and it can be pre-ordered at iTunes here.
