Kelly Clarkson To Release First Christmas Album

Kelly Clarkson has announced the release of her first Christmas album, Wrapped in Red. "Underneath the Christmas Tree," written by Clarkson and Greg Kurstin (who worked on Kel's LP Stronger), is the LP's first single.

The disc is not without big time country collabs-Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood join her on "Silent Night," while Ronnie Dunn recently hit Facebook to confirm an appearance as well.

Other classics to feature on the holiday LP include "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Blue Christmas," "Run Run Rudolph" and "Please Come Home for Christmas."

In a statement, Clarkson said she is "super excited to put out my first Christmas record. I absolutely love Christmas music and have had a total blast recording and writing for it. I can't wait for y'all to hear it."

Wrapped in Red hits October 29.
