Underwood schedules a special "My Gift"

Tuesday, July 27, 2021 – 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)."

CD review - My Gift It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree. The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
CD review - Cry Pretty Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
