Keith Settles On 'Classic Christmas' Track List
The Show Dog Nashville set includes such familiar tunes as "White Christmas," "Silver Bells" and "The Christmas Song."There's still no specific release date beyond "fall," but Toby Keith has nailed down the track list for "A Classic Christmas," his second holiday collection. As previously reported, the Show Dog Nashville set includes such familiar tunes as "White Christmas," "Silver Bells" and "The Christmas Song."
"I've been meaning to do another (Christmas album) for 10 years," Keith told Billboard.com earlier this year. "I'm not an extremely religious guy, but I am a Christian, and I do know what the meaning of Christmas is."
The instrumentation is a bit different than a traditional Keith album as well. "I cut it mainly with acoustic instruments," he said. "I called it the bluegrass band -- dobro, fiddle, mandolin, piano, acoustic bass and brushes on the drums. That became a new part of me. I like to hear myself working in that atmosphere and that environment."
Keith has North American tour dates on tap through late September.
