Underwood chatted with Zane Lowe of The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music. Some of the conversation is posted on Twitter and Carrie Underwood says she “loved creating a playlist for the moment with @zanelowe and chatting about my @hbomax Christmas special!”

Additionally, the award-winning singer touches on the show “My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood.” Underwood says,” We wanted everything to just be beautiful, classy, and classic.”

She also alludes to being surrounded by scenery that makes her feel like she’s in a snow globe the whole time.

Carrie Underwood Christmas Special Trailer

Earlier this week, HBO Max released a preview of Underwood’s Christmas special. The synopsis reads, “A holiday special with beloved country artist Carrie Underwood debuting her first-ever Christmas album: My Gift.”

The show begins streaming today (Dec. 3) on the online cable platform.

Underwood states in the trailer, “For Christmas, I feel like it was always about just us being together. So, more than anything, I wanted to make this album full of so much love and so much heart. And, we wanted to bring it to life in a visual way. I can’t wait for everyone to see it. … Every time I am on stage it is a gift for me to get to sing.”

Christmas Came Early for Carrie

Underwood started celebrating Christmas early this year. She debuted her Christmas album, also titled “My Gift” in September. It’s her first Christmas record and it’s garnering great success. “My Gift” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country, Christian, and Holiday charts.

Furthermore, the album features traditional Christmas carols, as well as some originals. “My Gift” features some duets with some very special people. For one, Underwood’s son, Isiah, joins her on “Little Drummer Boy.” John Legend’s also lending his talents to one song.
