"Vince Gill: The Christmas Collection" has been released as a limited-edition, double-vinyl set available exclusively at Cracker Barrel stores nationwide.
The MCA Nashville double LP includes 1993’s platinum, #1 Billboard Holiday Album, "Let There Be Peace on Earth" on green vinyl and 1998’s "Breath of Heaven", recorded with the Patrick Williams Orchestra, on red vinyl. The collection includes such classics as “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” “The Christmas Song,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Gill also performs Elvis Presley’s 1957 hit, “Blue Christmas.”
Also included in the package are Gill’s classic versions of “O Holy Night,” “Let There Be Peace On Earth,” featuring a then 11-year-old daughter Jenny Gill, and “Breath of Heaven,” a song co-written by Gill’s wife and star of the Contemporary Christian genre, Amy Grant.
Gill and Grant are set for a 12-night engagement as part of their much-beloved Christmas at the Ryman performances, beginning on November 28 and ending December 23.
