by Emily Morgan

Roku users have much to celebrate after the service included the HBO Max channel, which includes Carrie Underwood’s holiday special. 

After a battle between companies, Roku subscribers can access the massive collection of movies and specials on the streaming service. With Christmas quickly approaching, many users have turned to Underwood’s Christmas special to help get them in the holiday spirit. 

This year, Underwood’s HBO Max original, My Gift: A Christmas Special from Carrie Underwood, accompanied her first-ever Christmas album. Roku users can access the special in the Holiday section on HBO Max or quickly search in the app. Anyone with a Roku device and an HBO subscription can view the special at no fee.

The county music singer premiered her songs from her latest album, including the adorable duet with her son, Isaiah. Together with her son, their rendition of “Little Drummer Boy” became a hit after the five-year-old delivered heartwarming vocals alongside his mom. 

Carrie Underwood’s Long Awaited Christmas Special Finally Arrives

The highly-anticipated HBO Max special debuted earlier this month on Dec. 3. In addition to her duet with Isaiah, the special also featured a duet with John Legend. The two worked together on the original song, “Hallelujah.” Underwood said she hopes it “will bring much-needed joy and become part of the soundtrack to people’s festivities this year.”

In addition, Underwood admitted she’s been wanting to create a Christmas album for some time. She had previously taken part in other specials before her HBO Max project. She premiered Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special in 2009 which featured an array of stars, including Dolly Parton, Kristen Chenoweth, and Christina Applegate.

Underwood recently performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she discussed her new album and her duets with Legend and her son. She also delivered a stunning performance of “O Holy Night.” Considering all the the work she put into the My Gift album, Underwood admitted she felt like she lived in a “Christmasland” the entire year.
