Carrie Underwood Opens Up About ‘My Gift’ Album & Why Fans Gravitate to Some Songs 

During a 2020 interview with Billboard, Carrie Underwood opened up about why fans gravitate to some songs on her My Gift Christmas album. “You never know how people are going to react when you record something or write something or whatever it is,” Underwood explained. “You just kind of throw it all out there and just see.”

Carrie Underwood goes on to say she thinks Hallelujah is a beautiful song that covers “a lot of ground” in Christmas song land. “It’s got some spiritual aspects to it. [The song’s] got kind of this love story to it. It’s got all of the tactile [elements]… winter’s chill, candles. It paints the scene really well. So it kind of puts you into that time of year.”

When asked how it felt to record Little Drummer Boy with her son Isaiah, Carrie Underwood described the experience as great. “He came in, I asked him if he might want to do it. I definitely wanted it to be his choice and didn’t want to force him into it. Or make it feel like work or anything like that.”

Carrie Underwood then stated that Isaiah is what she thinks of when she thinks of the Little Drummer Boy. “So I asked him if he wanted to sing it with me. It was so great getting to share what I love to do with him.”
