Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have finally teamed up to make an album together. Since they’ve admitted that the reason they haven’t made a duets album yet is because they have difficulty agreeing on songs, making a Christmas album seems like a reasonable compromise to at least get them started.
Of particular note for Trisha Yearwood fans, Christmas Together is a mix of duets and solo performances, that latter of which include Yearwood delivering a cheeky performance of “Santa Baby” that doesn’t even sound like her. But she then reminds us that she’s one of the best singers in the business when she sings, “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eave?” and “Hard Candy Christmas.”
Additionally, some classics are mixed with originals like the fun “Ugly Christmas Sweater” and the meaningful “What I’m Thankful For,” which features James Taylor.
Recommended Tracks: “I’m Beginning to See the Light”, “Ugly Christmas Sweater,” “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?”
Versions of these capsule Christmas album reviews will also appear in the Christmas edition of Country Style Magazine.
