Martina McBride Discusses Upcoming Christmas Album


Martina McBride says that she is going big on her upcoming new Christmas album, recording it in Los Angeles with a big band and an orchestra.

"I'm cutting it in Los Angeles with a big band and orchestra," McBride tells Sounds Like Nashville. "I hired Patrick Williams to arrange it, who is legendary and has arranged for so many people, and he has that classic big band approach. When I made 1998's White Christmas, I wanted to make a classic sounding record. I can't do that same record again, of course, but this one is going to have several up-tempo things on it. It won't have as many hymns on it. It will be more things like 'Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town' and 'It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.'"

McBride's forthcoming new holiday album does not yet have a firm release date.
