Christmas comes early this year with a little help from Lady Antebellum.
The trio spread the holiday cheer with On This Winter’s Night, due out October 22.
Lady A puts their country spin on 11 classic carols like “Blue Christmas,” “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
Which wasn’t always easy, as Dave Haywood explained.
“We recorded this album in two sections, but both times were in the summertime,” Haywood wrote on the band’s website. “It is always weird to be in the studio in June and July, so we decorated the entire studio, we really did. We brought out lights, fake trees and decorated the place to get in the Christmas spirit. You’d leave the studio, and it’d be 100 degrees out in Nashville, but nonetheless, a great experience.”
Not looking to make the same old holiday album, the band even created original arrangements for two holiday staples, “The First Noel” and “Silent Night (Lord of My Life),” along with writing their own Christmas song, the title track “On This Winter’s Night.”
