– Carrie Underwood will release "My Gift (Special Edition)" on CD/digital on Sept. 24, featuring three additional tracks.
Initially released Sept. 25, 2020, this was the first-ever Christmas album for Underwood.
"My Gift" is a combination of traditional songs celebrating the spiritual nature of Christmas and several originals, two of which were written by Underwood, frequent collaborator Brett James ("Jesus, Take the Wheel," "Something In The Water"), and her "Cry Pretty" co-producer, David Garcia.
The special edition will feature new songs "Favorite Time Of Year," which was previously released exclusively as an Amazon Original and featured in Ring's 2020 Doorbell Season holiday campaign. Written by Underwood, Hillary Lindsey, and Chris DeStefano and produced by Greg Wells, "Favorite Time Of Year" also opened the HBO Max Original, "My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood."
"All Is Well" (Michael W. Smith, Wayne Kirkpatrick) is an all-new studio recording of Smith's classic, produced by Greg Wells.
"Let There Be Peace/Something In The Water (LIVE From HBO Max's MY GIFT: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood)" (Carrie Underwood, Brett James, David Garcia, Chris DeStefano), is the live recording of the medley that provided a finale to the Max Original special.
"'My Gift' is an album I've wanted to make from the beginning of my career," said Underwood. "It's been such a blessing to share this special music, and I'm excited to share even more with the release of My Gift (Special Edition)."
