RASCAL FLATTS GIVES FANS “THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL” WITH FIRST-EVER CHRISTMAS ALBUM
CMA Awards Vocal Group Of The Year Nominee’s Festive Collection Is Set For Release On Oct. 21
Nashville, TN – Sept. 23, 2016 – CMA Awards Vocal Group of The Year nominee Rascal Flatts will release THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL, their first-ever Christmas album, on Oct. 21. The much-anticipated 10-track collection was produced by Rascal Flatts and features moving and powerhouse performances that the trio is known for, while offering personal touches to some fan-favorite staples of the festive season. The album is available for pre-order starting today here.
THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL opens with a rousing rendition of “Joy To The World,” and features a sentimental version of “Silent Night” opening with vocals from the children of all three band members. Adding some Motown flair with Stevie Wonder’s “Someday At Christmas,” while a standout track on the record comes in the form of “A Strange Way To Save The World,” a reflective song originally recorded by 4Him, which has been given a contemporary update by the trio.
“It probably seems crazy that we waited this long to release a Christmas record,” said Jay DeMarcus. “We just wanted to do it right! There are certain songs I think most everyone wants to hear during Christmas, and we wanted to put our own special spin on those songs, while adding in a couple of our personal favorites. We had a blast making this album, and being in the producer’s chair ourselves, makes it extra fun and challenging for us.”
