Subscribe to Lonestar 99-5 FM on

You may not want to begin decorating for Christmas until after Halloween, but by then, country’s best new Christmas music will already be filling homes nationwide. Reba McEntire kicked off the holiday season with her My Kind of Christmas album in early September, and more than half a dozen albums are set to follow.

Loretta Lynn‘s first-ever Christmas album, White Christmas Blue, is set for Oct. 7. One week later Chris Young will release It Must Be Christmas, an album that includes guest appearances from Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley and Boyz II Men.

Rascal FlattsThe Greatest Gift of All promises funky, soulful interpretations of classic Christmas songs. The trio’s kids sing on “Silent Night” (Gary LeVox’s 16-year-old daughter takes lead), and a choir from Jay DeMarcus’ alma mater backs them up on “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” This album drops on Oct. 21.

Find Brett Eldredge‘s Frank Sinatra-inspired Glow on Oct. 28. A highlight is sure to be his duet of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with Meghan Trainor. That same day, Jennifer Nettles’ To Celebrate Christmas drops, as does Kacey MusgravesA Very Kacey Christmas. Musgraves will tour in support of her album, which includes four originals and a duet with Willie Nelson.
