CARRIE UNDERWOOD is bringing fans a little Christmas in July. She just announced that she's recording her first Christmas album, and that it'll be out in September.
It's called "My Gift", and it'll feature "beloved traditional favorites," but the exact track-list hasn't been revealed yet.
Carrie said, quote, "I've always wanted to make a Christmas album . . . [and] it's turned out to be the perfect time for an album like this, in this period of such personal and spiritual reflection."
She added, quote, "For me, it's more important than ever to focus on the true meaning of Christmas in a project like this.
"Even though it's been a tough year for all of us . . . sometimes I feel like the greatest realizations can be inspired by the most difficult times, and make us more grateful for the things we do have and for what truly matters."
