Following the multi-platinum NOW Christmas series of double CDs and the Country chart-topping NOW That's What I Call Country releases, comes NOW That's What I Call A Country Christmas. For the first time ever, this double-disc set includes country greats like Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley alongside current artists like Kenny Chesney and George Strait, all singing their favorite Christmas songs. Featured artists include Trace Adkins, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Brooks and Dunn, Kellie Pickler, George Strait, Alabama, Sugarland, Elvis Presley with Martina McBride, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, and many more.

The "Wall Of Sound" production style that Phil Spector developed in New York City in 1961, and perfected at Gold Star Studios in Hollywood beginning in 1962, reached its divine apotheosis on 1963's A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector - often cited as Beach Boy Brian Wilson's favorite album of all time. The album, now remastered from its original mono mixes, comprises 13 yule gems that show off the talents of his artist roster. Tracks include "White Christmas" and "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by Rock And Roll Hall of Fame 2010 nominee Darlene Love, "Frosty the Snowman" and "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by the Ronettes, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" and "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" by the Crystals, "The Bells of St. Mary" and "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Bob B. Soxx and The Blue Jeans, and five more.
