Martina McBride Revamps Holiday Album

Martina McBride will re-release her holiday album, White Christmas, on Oct. 2 with all-new artwork and four additional songs. McBride went to the studio in July to record three new tracks — “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “Winter Wonderland” and “Jingle Bells.” The other addition is “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” which McBride overdubbed as a duet for the late Dean Martin’s holiday album that was released last year. “When I got the chance to go back and add some other favorites I had missed, I was very excited,” McBride said. “I knew I wanted to add the Dean Martin duet, and after performing our Christmas show for the past several seasons, it made me want to add crowd favorites like ’Winter Wonderland’ and ’Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’ and — of course — ’Jingle Bells.’ How did I miss that one last time?”
