Martina McBride Releasing New Holiday Album

Country music star Martina McBride will release a new Christmas album Its The Holiday Season on October 19.

The 9-song record will consist of Christmas favorites featuring more than 40 world-class musicians.

McBride said on Instagram that she is thrilled to announce “the new Christmas album, Christmas tour, and a new cookbook all coming out this fall.” We recorded “It’s The Holiday Season” with a full orchestra and a big swing band to create something truly special,” she added.

It comes 20 years after McBride’s 1998 multiplatinum album, White Christmas.

McBride said in a statement that she wanted to accomplish the same thing with It’s The Holiday Season, “but with a different feel. So I decided to make most of the album with a big-band swing vibe that takes you back to the Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald records.”

McBride has also announced the Joy of Christmas Tour in support of the album, beginning November 23, with a local orchestra during each of her stops.
