Carrie Underwood Christmas Songs & Music
Carrie Underwood shot to fame on the fourth season of American
Idol. Since then, she has made a name for herself as highly
successful country music star. Unlike many of her American Idol
co-stars, Underwood is yet to release a Christmas album of her own.
She has however lent her talents to several yuletide tracks which
appear on various seasonal compilation albums.
Do You Hear What I Hear?- 2007
Underwood opens the 2007 compilation album Hear Something
Country Christmas with traditional carol Do You Hear What I Hear?.
Her rendition brings a modern flavour to this favourite, with the
sparse accompaniment showing off her powerful voice. Underwood
appears alongside country stars such as Martina McBride, Johnny
Cash and Alan Jackson.
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing- 2009
Carrie Underwood gives an unusual country twist to this
traditionally classical carol. Her rendition appears on the 2009
charity compilation A Very Special Christmas 7, alongside artists
including Miley Cyrus, Sean Kingston and Vanessa Hudgens.
What Child is This? - 2010
Carrie Underwood continues her Christmas contributions with a
rendition of What Child is This?, on the 2010 compilation Now
That's What I Call Christmas 4. As in her previous Christmas
recordings, Underwood chooses an age-old favourite and brings her
own unique flavour to it. She does however maintain much of the
classical style originally intended for this carol, harmonising the
famous melody with sparse and unusual piano chords.
