Reba McEntire announces ‘The Ultimate Christmas Collection’

Album features 2021 single, “I Needed Christmas”

Reba McEntire is set to release The Ultimate Christmas Collection on CD on October 14th and White LP on November 4th via Rockin’ R Records and UMG Nashville. The compilation features 12 songs taken from her three individual Christmas albums: 1987’s Merry Christmas To You, 1999’s The Secret of Giving and 2017’s My Kind of Christmas. It also includes “I Needed Christmas,” which was released in 2021 from her Lifetime TV movie, Reba McEntire’s Christmas In Tune, and is now available for the first time physically.

“I’m excited to share this newly packaged collection of my all-time favorite Christmas songs,” Reba shares. “It was so hard to narrow down to just twelve songs, but I hope my fans enjoy this journey through time!”

Limited edition holiday merch, including a sweatshirt, ornament, mug and lithograph are available via Reba’s website.

Reba McEntire’s Christmas In Tune will be released on DVD as part of Lifetime’s A Very Merry Movie Collection Vol. 4, set for release on November 1st. The set will contain 12 holiday titles, including Kirk Franklin’s A Gospel Christmas, and will be available exclusively through Walmart.

The releases follow Reba’s special CD & DVD pairing, My Chains Are Gone, which features the flamed-hair singer performing some of the most beloved hymns of all time.

The multi-faceted country star returns to the road this fall with the Reba: Live in Concert arena tour, set to kick off October 13th in Lafayette, LA. With 35 No. 1 hits under her belt, the award-winning entertainer will deliver hit after hit during her entertaining live show. Presented by Live Nation, the 17-city tour will feature special guest Terri Clark across all shows.

McEntire can be seen as a series regular for the upcoming third season of Big Sky: Deadly Trailsset to premiere on September 21st on ABC. McEntire portrays Sunny Barnes, a mercurial matriarch of the Brick Family, a successful backcountry outfitter with a secret history of missing customers. She will be joined by real life boyfriend Rex Linn in the new season.

Earlier this summer, Lifetime and Reba shared the first glimpse at her upcoming second film for the network, Reba McEntire’s The Hammer. McEntire will star as Kim Wheeler, an outspoken, firecracker lawyer who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada, and is one of the few traveling judges left in America. She also executive produces the film which co-stars Linn and Reba alum Melissa Peterman. It’s set to premiere in 2023.
