This holiday season, country legends Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers will deck the halls with an all-new Christmas album. Brothers Larry, Rudy and Steve have released We Say Merry Christmas (Sony RED), the group's first holiday album in more than 10 years.
"There is no better music than the sweet sounds of Christmas songs not only about the great season, but of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ," says Steve Gatlin.
The 2-disc album contains 19 songs and is chock full of classic Christmas standards including, "Silver Bells," "Silent Night," "Winter Wonderland," "Joy To The World" and more. The collection also includes several original holiday songs penned by Larry Gatlin.
Larry adds, "We Say Merry Christmas. Any questions?"
Digital pre-sales on iTunes and Amazon start on October 28. Early bird shoppers who participate in the pre-sale will immediately be able to download two songs ahead of the release date ("Joy To The World" and "Winter Wonderland").
