There are two types of people in America: Those that begin Christmas celebrations before Thanksgiving, and those that begin after. If you’re the latter, bookmark this and read on November 25th. But if you’re the before kind, then hang on to your stockings and tree, as country Christmas just came early!

Ever since the pair teamed up at her 2017 Stagecoach performance, Shania Twain and Nick Jonas have continued to work together. Their long-standing friendship has now culminated in a new project: a Christmas release that is a sexy duet.
The track, released as a single, comes on the heels of Now, her first full-length album release in 15 years. When she released the song, she introduced it on social media with the tagline, “The most wonderful time of the year.”
The clip that she put out on Twitter features the chorus, with the pair singing the title of the track, “Say all you want for Christmas is me.” It went viral. The full release is now available for purchase, so you can add it to your holiday playlist!
“Oh Holy Night”
Another pre-Turkey Day Christmas release is Luke Bryan’s “Oh Holy Night.”
The 2017 CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee gave a sneak peek of the cover to People, but the full version is now available. Martina McBride covered the Christmas classic years ago, and her version is always a perennial favorite. But Bryan’s version is already quite popular. It’s a straightforward, simple recording that had fans gushing from the start.
Bryan has released holiday music in the past, as well. The American Idol judge released his version of “Run Run Rudolph” in 2008 from the album Country for Christmas. It charted at No. 42. Only Chuck Berry’s recording of the song charted higher.
In addition “Oh Holy Night,” Bryan also recently released a new track from his upcoming album What Makes You Country. “Most People are Good” is a timely message of hope and healing.
Of course, as Christmas comes around, more country stars will likely release old favorites. And there will also be the favorites of the past. So no matter what time of year you like to begin your Yuletide festivities, your favorite country artists have your holiday playlist covered. Now if they could just do your shopping!
