Artist of the Week Carrie Underwood

Week 51 of 2020

Carrie Underwood is having a special present for her fans this Christmas. The champion of “American Idol” season 4 is celebrating the jolly season early with her first ever festive studio album fittingly titled “My Gift”.

She hoped the album could give everyone a little relief amid the doom and gloom of 2020. “Now more than ever we all need to focus on what Christmas is about, rely more on our family and even though it has been a tough year sometimes I feel like the greatest realisations can come during the worst times or the most stressful times,” she said. “And it makes you more thankful for the things that you do have.”

The 11-track album is a mix of originals and holiday classics. One of the brand new songs is a wholesome collaboration with John Legend called “Hallelujah” while one of the covers is revamp of “The Little Drummer Boy” featuring Carrie’s own little son Isaiah Fisher.

It debuted at No. 8 on Billboard Hot 200 and hit the pinnacle on the Billboard Top Country Albums, marking Carrie’s eighth consecutive No. 1 album on the Country chart. It also reigned the Top Christian Albums and Top Holiday Albums.
