It may be Christmas in July but for Kenny Rogers, Christmas is coming again this fall.
The country singer has announced that his first Christmas album in 17 years will be released this fall. Titled Once Again It’s Christmas, Rogers will team up with Alison Krauss, Jennifer Nettles, Home Free, Jim Brickman and Winfield’s Locket for the release.
“I can’t tell you how much fun it was recording a Christmas record again,” Rogers said in a press release. “I’m excited for people to hear it. I feel like this is a special group of songs—both old and new—and I was particularly lucky to be joined by many talented guest artists and musicians who each have something unique to say.”
Rogers released his first Christmas album in 1981 and since then has performed on his annual Christmas & Hits Tour, which will continue again this winter for the 34th year.
