Chris Young reveals the complete tracklist for his first Christmas album, It Must Be Christmas, set to release on October 14th. The collection features special guest appearances including country icon Alan Jackson on “There’s A New Kid In Town.” The song originally appeared on Jackson’s first Christmas album released in 1993 as a duet with the legendary Keith Whitley. Country superstar Brad Paisley joins Young for a powerful rendition of “The First Noel.” Legendary soul trio Boyz II Men lend their voices for an epic take on the Christmas classic, “Silent Night.” Young co-wrote two original Christmas songs for the project – “Under The Weather” and the title track “It Must Be Christmas.”

2016 has proven to be a banner year for Young who recently received a CMA Musical Event Of The Year nomination for “Think Of You” with Cassadee Pope, the hit-maker’s eighth No. 1 single. Young’s celebrated fifth studio album, I’m Comin’ Over, produced two back-to-back No. 1 hits – the project’s Platinum selling title track and CMA Musical Event Of The Year nominated “Think Of You” duet with Cassadee Pope – and Young’s current critically-acclaimed single “Sober Saturday Night,” featuring Vince Gill. Later this month, Young launches the fall leg of his headlining “I’m Comin’ Over Tour” joined by Dan + Shay, Dustin Lynch and Cassadee Pope.
