Blake Shelton to Release Cheers It's Christmas on October 2!
Blake Shelton will release his first holiday album, Cheers It's Christmas, on October 2, and he's lined up an eclectic array of guest stars for the project. Joining him for duets on the album will be his buddy Reba, pop crooner Michael Buble, who will mentor Blake's team on the upcoming season of The Voice. And, most surprisingly, his mother. Blake and his mom, Dorothy Shackleford, co-wrote a song called "Time for Me to Come Home" for the project, and the two perform it as a duet. As for his duet with Michael, it's a reworking of "Home," which Michael co-wrote and scored a hit with, and that Blake subsequently took to the top of the charts. Blake's duet with Reba on the project, meanwhile, will mark the first time the two have ever performed on a disc together. In addition to the aforementioned tracks, the songs on Cheers It's Christmas include classic holiday songs, which Blake recorded with a full orchestra at Capitol Records' legendary studios.
