Vince Gill to Release Two-Disc Holiday Album “The Christmas Collection”

-

Vince Gill is gearing up for the holidays with the release of a double-vinyl project titled “The Christmas Collection.” Available exclusively at Cracker Barrel, the limited-edition set includes his 1993 No. 1 holiday album “Let There Be Peace On Earth” as well as 1998’s “Breath of Heaven.”

The 1993 collection is printed on green vinyl while his 1998 project, recorded with the Patrick Williams Orchestra, is on red vinyl. Fans can purchase “The Christmas Collection” at Cracker Barrel now as well as online at CrackerBarrel.com/music.

The two-disc project includes holiday standards like “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” “The Christmas Song” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” as well as Elvis Presley’s 1957 hit, “Blue Christmas.” Vince’s daughter, Jenny, is also featured on “Let There Be Peace On Earth,” recorded when she was 11.

“Breath of Heaven,” a song co-written by Vince’s wife, Amy Grant, is also featured on the project. The couple will return later this year for a 12-night engagement as part of their annual “Christmas at the Ryman” performances. The yearly tradition begins on Nov. 28 and runs through Dec. 23 at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium.
