Chris Young’s ‘It Must Be Christmas’ to Feature Boyz II Men + More
Chris Young is working on a Christmas album, and according to the track listing released Monday (Sept. 19), It Must Be Christmas is going to include some pretty special guests: Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley and R&B vocal group Boyz II Men are all slated to collaborate with Young on his very first Christmas collection.
Set to release on Oct. 14, It Must Be Christmas will include 10 of Young's favorite holiday tunes, although the I'm Comin' Over artist admits it was hard to pick even those because there are so many that he loves. Country icon Jackson will join Young for a cover of his 1993 hit "There's a New Kid in Town," originally performed with Keith Whitley, while Paisley will join Young for a heartfelt rendition of "The First Noel," and Boyz II Men will lend their epic harmonies on "Silent Night."
Along with his own take on Christmas classics, Young will also debut two original songs on the album: He co-wrote the title track, "It Must Be Christmas," as well as another new song, "Under the Weather." A complete track listing is below.
