Loretta Lynn Returns With First Christmas Album Since 1966


Loretta Lynn will issue a new holiday album, White Christmas Blue, on Oct. 7 via Legacy Recordings. She recorded the songs at Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, with producers Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash.

Lynn co-wrote the title track with Shawn Camp, who also sings and plays guitar on the track. White Christmas Blue is her first collection of seasonal songs since 1966.

The 12 studio performances also include new versions of two original compositions (“Country Christmas” and “To Heck With Ole Santa Claus”) which first appeared on Country Christmas (1966); traditional carols (“Away in a Manger,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Silent Night”); and seasonal pop standards (“Winter Wonderland,” “Frosty the Snowman,” “Jingle Bells,” “White Christmas”). The album concludes with Lynn’s heartfelt recitation of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

Lynn released a new country album, Full Circle, on Legacy Recordings in March.
