Brett Young unveils collaborative Christmas record

Brett Young & Friends Sing the Christmas Classics available Oct 22nd

Brett Young brightens the holiday season, unwrapping his first-ever Christmas album — Brett Young & Friends Sing The Christmas Classics via BMLG Records on October 22nd. Enlisting an all-star lineup of collaborators including Colbie Caillat, Sam Fischer, Dann Huff, Darius Rucker, Maddie & Tae, Chris Tomlin and Phil Wickham, the eight song collection includes “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” feauturing Sam Fischer available instantly.

Later this year, Young will bring the album’s soulful stylings and must-see duets to television with CMT Crossroads Christmas: Brett Young & Friends. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Aptly titled, these yule-tide pairings find Young trading stirring harmonies and celebrating the warmth of the holiday season with fresh takes on traditional songs. Young and producer Noah Needleman tapped into a suave, jazzy production throughout the project after getting in the spirit with Young’s “Silver Bells” last year.

“I’ve always known that I wanted to make a Christmas album one day, it was just a matter of figuring out how I could do something a little bit different. We tapped into an old school, lo-fi sound with ‘Silver Bells,’ and knew we had the blueprint for a full album. It means the world that so many incredible artists who I respect were open to singing with me on the project… we don’t take the title ‘Brett Young and Friends’ lightly!”
