Chris Young’s first-ever holiday album, It Must Be Christmas, is set to drop on Oct. 14. While Chris has remained pretty tight-lipped about the songs and guest artists featured on the album, he did tease the song “There’s a New Kid in Town” on Twitter this morning, and it sounds like Alan Jackson has made a guest appearance.

Chris sat down with Nash Country Daily last week and mentioned that his favorite Christmas album as a child was Alan Jackson’s 1993 Honky Tonk Christmas.
“Yeah, definitely I have a favorite holiday album,” says Chris. “There’s a whole album to me, and I’ve referenced it a lot, but that Alan Jackson Christmas record to me was great—it was that and the Beach Boys’ Christmas album. Those two things had to be played or it wasn’t Christmastime at my house. That was it. I can tell you I did not cut this, but the one that always makes me laugh is Alan’s ‘Please Daddy, Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas.’ I was actually walking through a supermarket singing it at as a kid at one point. My mom was like, ‘You have to stop singing that. People are going to think there’s something wrong.'”
