This year, Reba McEntire re-issued her latest yuletide offering, 2016’s My Kind of Christmas, in a new deluxe edition. But that’s not the only Reba holiday album that’s getting a special treatment in 2017.
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the Oklahoma native’s first seasonal set, 1987’s Merry Christmas to You, is being re-released on vinyl. The double-platinum album was initially available as a 33 1/3 record with its original cover, featuring a short-haired Reba. The new version opts for the second cover that came out in the nineties, featuring a more glammed-up photo of the country icon, showing off her considerable mane.
Reba hosts this year’s CMA Country Christmas special on ABC, and one of her guests is getting a holiday re-issue as well. Lady Antebellum’s gold 2012 album, On This Winter’s Night, gets its first vinyl incarnation this year. You can see Lady A perform the tracks “This Christmas” and “Silver Bells” when the CMA Christmas special re-airs Thursday, December 21 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
Darius Rucker’s 2014 offering, Home for the Holidays, is also available for the first time on vinyl this season. Watch for Darius’s version of “Winter Wonderland” on Disney Parks’ Magical Christmas Celebration Christmas morning on ABC.
