Carrie Underwood surprised fans on Tuesday morning when she announced that she will be releasing a special edition of her holiday album My Gift, which she originally released in September 2020. The new edition will arrive on Sept. 24 and will include three new songs, "Favorite Time of Year," "All Is Well" and Underwood's performance of "Let There Be Peace" and "Something in the Water" from her HBO Max holiday special.
"Christmas is coming early again this year as I couldn't wait to release a Special Edition of #MyGift with 3 additional songs!" Underwood wrote on social media alongside an album teaser, letting fans know that they can now pre-order the album, which you can do here. Underwood wrote "Favorite Time of Year" with Hillary Lindsey, and Chris DeStefano and the song was previously released exclusively as an Amazon Original and featured in Ring's 2020 Doorbell Season holiday campaign. She also performed the song during her HBO Max holiday special, My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood, which she closed out with a medley of "Let There Be Peace" from My Gift and her 2014 hit "Something in the Water."
