NEW ALBUM: CARRIE UNDERWOOD | MY GIFT (SPECIAL EDITION)
Carrie has released her album "My Gift" (Special Edition) featuring three additional tracks. Initially released September 25, 2020, Carrie’s first-ever Christmas album, My Gift, debuted #1 across multiple global charts, including Billboard’s Country, Christian and Holiday album charts. An Underwood co-write called "Favorite Time of Year" is one of the three additions to the special edition album. The song was an Amazon Original last fall and part of her HBO Max Christmas special. A mashup of "Let There Be Peace" and "Something in the Water" from that same special will close the new release. Additionally, a Michael W. Smith and Wayne Kilpatrick co-write called "All Is Well" will be featured on the album. This is the only truly new recording of the 14. Smith originally cut the song in 1989, but he and Underwood came together to re-cut it for his 2014 album, "The Spirit of Christmas." "My Gift" is a combination of beloved traditional songs celebrating the spiritual nature of Christmas and several originals, two of which were written by Carrie, frequent collaborator Brett James (“Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Something In The Water”), and her "Cry Pretty" co-producer, David Garcia. "My Gift" led to an album of gospel songs called "My Savior," released early in 2021. Underwood's last studio album of country songs was "Cry Pretty," released in 2018.
