Sara Evans‘ first full-length holiday album, At Christmas, is now on sale. Instead of hiring a bunch of orchestras, Sara opted to take her own country sound and adapt it to holiday classics like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Winter Wonderland.” The project came together rather quickly since her record label only asked her to make the album a few months ago.
In an interview with ABC News Radio, Sara says, “In a way, that was great, because I didn’t obsess over it. I just kind of let [my producer] Mark go in, and I guided him on the phone. Like, ‘Let’s make it sound like Sara Evans’ music, but it’s Christmas songs.’”
Sara went in to record the vocals for At Christmas in a studio in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. She brought a few special guests along with her for the recording sessions, too.
“My girls sang on one song with me, on ‘The 12 Days of Christmas,’” Sara says. “It’s really precious.”
Here’s the track listing for At Christmas:
“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
“The Twelve Days of Christmas” (featuring Olivia and Audrey)
“O Holy Night”
“Run Rudolph Run”
“I’ll Be Home for Christmas”
“Go Tell It on the Mountain”
“O Come All Ye Faithful”
