Faith Hill Finishes Christmas Album

Faith Hill will be singing “Joy to the World” this fall as her long-awaited holiday album hits store shelves this September.

After 2 years in the making and a few minor setbacks (including knee surgery and a bronchial infection) Faith Hill has finally put the finishing touches on a christmas album that was two years in the making. The album, titled “Joy to the World”, will feature holiday classics like “O Holy Night” and “Winter Wonderland” as well as the original single “A Baby Changes Everything” written by Nashville’s own Tim Nichols, Craig Wiseman, and K.K. Wiseman.

A big factor in the albums lengthy production was Faith Hill’s determination to make this holiday hit everything she had imagined. This means including The Nashville Orchestra as well as the London-based choirs Metro Voices and The London Oratory School Boys Choir. “I had a very clear vision for the type of Christmas album that I wanted to make,” said Hill. “Indicative of the big band orchestras of the ’40s and ’50s, with a full compliment of horns, stings, woodwinds, percussion and chorales. David’s orchestrations were a gift. They embodied everything that I could have imaged; unique and beautiful, and yet they seem as though they were always intended for these songs.” Here she is referring to David Campbell who has also worked with such greats as Paul McCartney, Beyonce, Johnny Cash and the Rolling Stones.

“Joy to the World will release on September 16th 2008, and in the meantime Faith is spending her time with her children while husband Tim McGraw carries on with his “Live your Voice” tour.

  1. Hi,

    I am writing to let you know about one of Rascal Flatts biggest fans, Emily Noxon. Emily performed onstage with the band at their concert in Indianapolis Saturday after winning a Brickfish campaign sponsored by childhood health promoter MilkRocks. Emily’s rendition of the hit song “What Hurts the Most” beat out more than 340 entries and was viewed thousands of times across the Internet. She also won the chance to meet with an A&R executive from Lyric Street Records. Entries can be viewed at
