Chris Young dropped his Christmas album, It Must Be Christmas, last week, and we’re officially ready to spring into the holiday season (usually I’m not in favor of Christmas celebrations this early, but these country albums are changing my mind!)
‘Silent Night’ means a lot to Chris, and he knew it had to be featured on his album.
“It was something that meant a lot to me,” he said of the song. “I heard it a lot in church growing up, it was the last song we would sing at church service on Christmas Eve.”
When it came to recording it, Chris allowed Boyz II Men to work their creativity into the song.
The group join Chris during the chorus. “That was the way that they wanted to do,” he said of the collaboraiton. “I was like, ‘That is just so cool,’ because it’s different than everything else that’s on the rest of the album.”
We’re loving this version of the song!
Other collaborations on the album include Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley!
