Jennifer Nettles promises comfort and joy when she unwraps her first holiday collection To Celebrate Christmas on Oct. 28. The 10-song collection will feature Nettles’ take on Kenny Loggins’ “Celebrate Me Home,” Irving Berlin’s “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep” and Sandi Patty’s “Merry Christmas With Love.”
The album includes “Circle of Love,” an original by Dolly Parton. The country legend will play the Painted Lady opposite Nettles in Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, coming to NBC this December.
Nettles will return to play Parton’s mother Avie Lee Parton in the holiday-themed sequel following the peacock network’s first television special based on Parton’s life, Coat of Many Colors.
