American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood has wowed fans once again with her latest Christmas album 'A Gift.'

Only having just released the album on September 25th, fans are obsessed with how Underwoods managed to cover timeless Christmas songs in a classic country way.

The album features John Legend & her five year old son Isaiah Fisher singing ‘Little Drummer Boy.' Underwood explains 'that'll be a memory to have in [my mind and heart] for life.'

She stayed true to her roots adding her own country twist to these beloved Christmas songs. Her smooth and flawless vocals transport you from your everyday life and back to being a little kid too excited for Christmas. The album is a must this Christmas season in any household.

‘Oh Come All Ye Faithful’ is one of my personal favourites. You just can't beat a soothing orchestra blended perfectly with vocals as impeccable as Underwood's. The track puts you into the Christmas spirt, something we all needed after this crazy year.

The next song on the album ‘Let There Be Peace’ is a groovy number too, with that country twang heard subtly throughout. You wouldn’t expect the song getting any better until the chorus hits and a beautiful gospel choir chimes in. A wonderful, uplifting song that once again leaves you blown away!
