Carrie Underwood released her first-ever Christmas album, My Gift, on Sept. 25.

The 11-song album features a combination of beloved traditional favorites, such as “Mary, Did You Know?” “Silent Night” and “Away in the Manger,” as well as original material, including “Sweet Baby Jesus” and “Let There Be Peace.”

Composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr, “Silent Night” is a holiday staple that has been recorded by a number of A-list artists, including Bing Crosby, Julie Andrews, Simon & Garfunkel, Mariah Carey and more.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
