There are a lot of great holiday releases this year, but my favorite happens to be Blake Shelton's 'Cheers, It's Christmas.'

The track that won me over was 'Time For Me To Come Home For Christmas,' a duet with Blake Shelton's mother, Dorothy Shackleford.  The collaboration is an original holiday song with the potential of becoming a Christmas Classic. The charm of mom's voice puts the song's emotional lyrics into overdrive, instantly opening the flood gates of childhood Christmas memories.

Delightful duets with Reba McEntire, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies make this the perfect collection of festive tunes to brighten up any office holiday party, or to compliment any holiday gathering around the dinner table. In addition to his duet with mom, the holiday version of 'Home' with Michael Buble is also on the top of my list. Buble and Shelton each had a hit with this song, so it was quite obvious that the two of them should unite to record a Christmas version.

The CMA Entertainer of the Year loves Christmas so much, he's even produced a television special to air on December 3 on NBC.  Add 'Cheers, It's Christmas' to your collection of Christmas music and you'll enjoy it for years!
