Gretchen Wilson will be decking the halls a bit early this year with the release of her first Holiday album, Christmas In My Heart, to be released on October 8, 2013. The 10-song album will be released on Wilson’s Redneck Records and will feature a mix of traditional songs and original tracks.
“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 album’s original tracks include title-track “Christmas In My Heart” written by Greg Barnhill, “Santa I’ve Been Naughty” by Robert Simbeck and Frank Michels and “If You See Rudolph,” written by Trent Willmon, Jenee Fleenor & Rob Byus.
Classics include “Blue Christmas,” “The Christmas Song” and “Have A Holly Jolly Christmas.”

October is shaping up to be a busy month for Kelly Clarkson. She’ll wrap up her tour with Maroon 5, marry fiance Brandon Blackstock and release her first Christmas album. The pop-country phenom took to Twitter today to reveal the album’s cover, release date and title.
She tweeted: I have been dying to make this album since I was a kid! #WrappedInRed comes out Oct. 29th.
Earlier this year, she revealed that the album would feature collaborations with country royalty, including Ronnie Dunn on the classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” She told ABC News Radio, “He is like one of my favorite voices of all time. He’s so soulful, and that song, if you know Ronnie Dunn, is so his personality. Like, it’s straight up his personality to say all of that to try to get you to stay and have a drink.”
Additionally, she enlisted two country female powerhouses, Reba & Trisha Yearwood to join her on a track. “I can’t believe that Reba and Trisha agreed to do a trio with me on it. So, they’re doing ‘Silent Night,’ and it’s gonna be so epic. I’m so excited.”
We’re excited for Wrapped In Red! Are you?
