Alabama to release ‘American Christmas’ on October 6th

The iconic, Grammy award-winning group Alabama have announced the October 6th release of their new holiday-inspired album American Christmas on BMG. The release marks the band’s first newly recorded Christmas album in 21 years.

Recorded at Sound Emporium in Nashville, the album is a collection of favorites including “Away In A Manger,” “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bells,” as well as four new songs contributed by the band. The album also includes an updated version of Alabama’s holiday classic “Christmas In Dixie,” which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.

“Christmas is a special time for Alabama,” the band says in a statement. “We hope it is for you. From our hearts to you, we give you this Christmas gift. Thank you for the love and support, all these years. Merry Christmas!”

American Christmas is the follow up to their critically acclaimed album Southern Drawl, which marked the band’s first collection of new music in well over a decade.
