After weeks of waiting, Carrie Underwood’s Christmas album is finally here! The new album, My Gift, was officially released today (September 25) and has us all asking whether or not it’s too early to start blasting Christmas music on repeat. The album is filled with eleven Christmas classics, but it is the fourth song on the tracklist that really stands out among the rest. The fourth song, a cover of “Little Drummer Boy”, features Underwood’s five-year-old son Isaiah. The duet creates a perfect pairing of Carrie’s powerhouse vocals and Isaiah’s sweet and delicate tone. The cover also shows that the apple truly doesn’t fall far from the tree as Isaiah builds up to a belt later on in the song. Underwood noted in a recent interview that when she “heard the song back with his sweet little voice on it, [she] was both laughing and crying.” (Source: The Boot) The mother-son duo really does make a precious pair and the duet is sure to be a new classic!
