Seven-time Grammy Award winner Carrie Underwood will be spreading holiday cheer with her own HBO Max holiday special. Underwood will launch My Gift – her first full-length Christmas album – on September 25th (vinyl version arriving on October 30th), and the just-announced special will feature songs from that holiday album.

HBO Max’s announcement did not include an air date for the special.

“Carrie Underwood is a multi-faceted talent and we are thrilled to be partnering with her and our friends at Playtone to bring a dose of holiday cheer,” stated Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max.

“The journey of writing and recording this album started last year when I finished my tour and we could have never anticipated the circumstances we would be in this year,” said Carrie Underwood. “Creating this album has been good for my heart and I’m thrilled to get to share it with the world and to bring it to life with Playtone and HBO Max.”

According to HBO Max, Underwood’s holiday special will include a live orchestra and choir, with the popular five-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year singing new material along with traditional holiday favorites.

Playtone’s Gary Goetzman and Tom Hanks are executive producing along with Carrie Underwood and her manager, Ann Edelblute.
