Editorial Reviews

2013 release from the Country great. The album is a musical departure for the singer, featuring Celtic carols that marry American Folk music with such unusual instrumentation as weissenborn, mandolin, uilleann pipe, penny whistle, violin, viola, cello, harp and organ. ''This is the first Christmas record I've ever made, and I am so proud of this Christmas record, probably more proud of this than anything that I've possibly ever done with the exception of some of those really deep, profound military songs that pay tribute to heroes,'' Adkins stated in June. ''But other than that, I think, for my money, this record has more depth than anything - and it's a Christmas record. I love this record.''

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! October 29, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Its been a long time since I've really enjoyed a christmas cd. This was unique and very well done. I love that a country singer went out of the box and did a Celtic christmas cd. The songs chosen were very tasteful and it just all around a great cd. I've listened to it twice already today and I just purchased it. When I heard Trace was doing this cd I was skeptical how his voice would deliver but I was so wrong to question that because he did a great job.

King's Gift - by Trace Adkins

When I heard a few songs from this cd, I was hooked. The cd has a refreshing sound of traditional Christmas aire to it. The cd is a 2013 release from the Country great. The album is a musical departure for the singer, featuring Celtic carols that marry American Folk music with such unusual instrumentation as weissenborn, mandolin, uilleann pipe, penny whistle, violin, viola, cello, harp and organ. According to Trace Adkins, ''This is the first Christmas record I've ever made, and I am so proud of this Christmas record, probably more proud of this than anything that I've possibly ever done with the exception of some of those really deep, profound military songs that pay tribute to heroes,'' Adkins stated in June. ''But other than that, I think, for my money, this record has more depth than anything - and it's a Christmas record. I love this record.''

I love this music as well and I echo those sentiments. If you are looking for a Christmas album that is traditional with a Celtic flare to American folk, get this album, you will not be disappointed.

Songs found in this album are:

1. Wexford Carol
2. Tannenbaum
3. O' Come Emmanuel
4. Away in a Manger
5. I Saw Three Ships
6. Silent Night
7. We Three Kings
8. Carol of the Drum
9. Oh Holy Night
10. What Child is This

All Songs Traditional Arrangements by Jon Coleman and Michael Spriggs

Vocalists: Trace Adkins, Sonya Isaacs, Ben Isaacs, Emma Stevens, Alyth McCormack, Lily Costner, Perry Richardson, Paul Reissner, Jon Coleman

This album was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee and is clear, bright and cheerful. Also, this is an excellent addition to your Christmas music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Christmas CD from Trace November 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I love Trace Adkins and pre-ordered the CD. I was a bit skeptic on Celtic carols. Well, I listened to it twice when I got it and I was getting in the Christmas Spirit. This is a great CD, not the run of the mill Christmas songs. It's a great mix with Trace's deep voice. If you enjoy listening to Trace, you will certainly love this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars a jewel of an album November 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I highly suspect that this will be my favorite Christmas CD of 2013. In as much as both Western Swing and Celtic make strong use of the fiddle, such a marriage seems only natural (But this is my first to hear the combo.) The focus, on Christ the King is spot on...the production, rich, inventive and powerfully masculine. Even the guitar seemed to sing bass. I closed my listen with a deep sense of contentment, even joy. (I will confess, this is my first Trace CD, now I am going back to hear what I have been missing.)

First...........I adore Trace Adkins! But this was such an interesting combination of Country and Celtic; how could it miss? I am thoroughly enjoying listening to this new take on these beloved Christmas carols. You did it again, Trace!!
