    Carrie's Future Christmas Album: Your ideal tracklist

    So every year around this time we start listing Christmas songs we want Carrie to record for her future Christmas album. Every year though, my list changes and I figure other people's lists probably do too.

    So what songs would you want to see on a Carrie Christmas album?

    In no particular order, mine would look something like this:

    1. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
    2. Silent Night
    3. O Come All Ye Faithful
    4. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
    5. Baby, It's Cold Outside (Duet With Michael Bublé)
    6. O Little Town of Bethlehem
    7. Joy to the World
    8. All I Want For Christmas Is You
    9. Last Christmas
    10. The Little Drummer Boy
    11. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
    12. Original
    13. Original

    Flatts, you'd have TWO HYAMLCs?

    I'd love to make a tracklist, but apparently I don't know any Christmas music. I don't recognize half the songs posted. My household has only celebrated Christmas once.

    Good call. It's fixed.

    I feel bad for you if you've never heard any of these songs; there are so many fantastic, classic Christmas songs. I'm a sucker for classics; I love all of them. Have you heard the Christmas songs Carrie released during the CR era?

    By the time I was manically into Carrie, they'd stopped selling those copies, but I proudly admit I illegally downloaded it, so I know those songs. I remember playing Away in a Manger in junior high band, but I couldn't tell you the melody.

    I admit I have wanted a Xmas album from Carrie for 6 years now-- lol-- and for some reason, she keeps putting it off or saying no to the idea.

    I wonder if she is never going to do one for some reason? It is odd as in the past, she has said she loves Christmas songs, and she did want to do a Xmas album at some point. But they keep putting it off, so I am starting to lose hope in the idea.

    Same with a Concert DVD. It seems that her team just doesn't do creative marketing like that. Not sure why.

    She probably doesn't lie wide awake in bed, alone, pondering, "Should I release a Christmas album?" Just a guess.

    ^ I know. But they need to plan things well in advance and have business plans and goals every year. That is not even Carrie's job or fault at all-- it is her team that needs to plan a Xmas album and stategy for release, etc.

    Since Carrie said she wants to do one someday, I guess I was just hoping someday was now... lol

    Carrie could do a Christmas album and a gospel album, and then release it when she has her first child. That will tie us fanatic Carriefans over for awhile.

    Carrie still has her career going for her so all hype should be on her own CD; she has PLENTY of time to release a Christmas Album.

    As far as creative marketing, they really don't even need to think "outside the box" to promote Carrie well (though thinking "outside the box" certainly would be a big PLUS). Re-releases, big adds in Target, etc. are basic tactics that can be used that have not been already.
    I'm holding out this era for some better promoting to be done, not even thinking BIG, just something like what was done for "Carnival Ride" would be great.

    I wish she would make a Christmas album! For me anything would be perfect as long as Oh Holy Night is on it- I'd love to hear a studio version of it by her.
    1) Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
    2) All I Want For Christmas is You (I think it'd be really cool if she sang this)
    3) Silent Night
    4) What Child is This
    5) Baby it's Cold Outside (I'd love it if she did a duet with Brad or another big country name)
    6) The First Noel
    7) White Christmas
    8) The Christmas Song
    9) Away in a Manger
    10) The Little Drummer Boy
    11) Maybe an original song? - if not, I guess Joy to the World
    12) Oh Holy Night

    A non holiday inclusion that could still work on the album (mostly cause I just want her to record it so badly)

    a Living Prayer (A.Krauss & Union Station)

    Carrie has said she doesn't want to record a Christmas album until she's been in the business for 10-15 years. Although I'm dying for one from her, I can understand why she'd want to wait to do a full studio Christmas album. She should have plenty of time to develop her own identity before she releases an album like that. She has plenty of time, too.

    I also wish she would release a concert DVD, but she's only been in the business 6 years, and PO was really her first major tour that would've been great to have on DVD because of the amazing visual spectacle. Since Carrie has said she wants to experiment with different environments for each tour, I'm thinking she'll know when the time is right to release a DVD. They are also a ton of work, and it's possible Carrie wasn't interested in releasing a DVD because of everything else she had going on in 2009-2010.

    As far as marketing goes, I also agree Artista should be a little bit more creative, but if you think about it, many of their artists don't have incredible marketing opportunities either. No matter what happens, Carrie has the fan support to get her through anything, whether or not her label chooses to give her more opportunities. If worse comes to worse, Carrie will still come out looking just fine when it comes to album sales and touring numbers. I think we just need to think positive and hope for the best. Everything else has fallen into place for Carrie, and she is happier than ever; hopefully some of that good luck will continue into this new era.
