NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Country legend Kenny Rogers will be releasing a new Christmas album this fall for the first time in 17 years.
According to a release, the album will be called “Once Again It’s Christmas.”
“I can’t tell you how much fun it was recording a Christmas record again,” Rogers said. “I’m excited for people to hear it. I feel like this is a special group of songs — both old and new — and I was particularly lucky to be joined by many talented guest artists and musicians who each have something unique to say.”
Several special guests joined the Country Music Hall of Fame member on the new recording, such as Alison Krauss, Jennifer Nettles, Home Free, Jim Brickman and Winfield’s Locket, the release stated.
“Once Again It’s Christmas,” will be Rogers’ sixth Christmas album overall.
“Christmas is my favorite time of year. It’s a very important season for me, especially now that I have twin boys who just turned 11 years old. It’s reminded me of how you see it through different eyes when you’re a parent. It’s wonderful,” Rogers said.
He will continue on his annual Christmas and Hits tour this year for the 34th straight year. The final schedule is set to be announced soon. To read more about Rogers’ accomplishments and the new album click here to visit his website.
