On Oct. 16, LeAnn Rimes is back with her new album Today is Christmas. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, at Capitol Recording Studios and Sunset Sound Studios. The record includes two original songs that Rimes co-wrote, "I Still Believe in Santa Claus" and the title track, "Today Is Christmas," as well as classic Christmas tunes.
"I try to remain in the Christmas spirit all year long, so I am hoping my fans will be right there with me - singing all the way into the New Year," Rimes says. "I was able to collaborate with some incredibly talented vocalists and musicians to make this amazing record, and I can't wait for you to hear it."
The album, which is being released through Kobalt Label Services, is now available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. Fans who pre-order the disc will receive an instant download of "Celebrate Me Home," a duet that Rimes recorded with Gavin DeGraw.
