Scotty McCreery's new holiday album, Christmas with Scotty McCreery, will land in stores October 16 featuring his take on classic holiday songs and a pair of original tracks -- "Christmas Is Coming Around" and "Christmas in Heaven." Scotty pays tribute to his musical hero Elvis Presley with a version of "Santa Claus Is Back in Town" too.
Scotty admits his family starts listening to Christmas music early each holiday season, and he has sung many of these songs at events around his North Carolina hometown over the years.
"It'll be fun having my own little Christmas songs, "says Scotty. "I'm sure mama will be pumping the CD pretty loudly every day until Christmas."
Scotty's versions of "Holly Jolly Christmas," "Mary, Did You Know," "O Holy Night" and "The First Noel" are among the other classic holiday songs included on the project.
Fans who purchase Christmas with Scotty McCreery at ScottyMcCreery.com will get an autographed copy of the project. One hundred of those fans will also get a personal phone call from Scotty this holiday season.
