During a virtual fan club party earlier today (6/3), Carrie Underwood announced that a Christmas album is on the way. Underwood shared the news exclusively with the more than 1,200 viewers gathered for a live-stream hosted by the artist’s Official Fan Club. The virtual party took the place of the in-person event held at the Grand Ole Opry house every year.
Underwood has recorded multiple Christmas songs throughout her fifteen-year career including, “O Holy Night”, “Do You Hear What I Hear”, “The First Noel”, and “ Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” but has yet to release a full holiday album. She shared her excitement with fans during the live broadcast, explaining that it’s been in the works for a long time.
In addition to the announcement, the virtual fan club party included an audience Q&A, a raffle, and an acoustic performance. The country superstar opted to perform non-single fan favorites from each album, including, “That’s Where It Is”, “You Won’t Find This”, “Someday When I Stop Loving You”, and “Thank God For Hometowns”.
Before signing off, Underwood acknowledged an important message in another song, and one that is desperately needed today. “God has given us the capacity to love each other,” said Underwood, before ending the live broadcast with a performance of her hit song, “Love Wins”.
An official announcement and release date for the Christmas album are expected later this year. In the meantime, fans can catch Underwood and husband Mike Fisher in the four-part mini-series, I Am Second every Wednesday at 8PM EST.
