JESSIE JAMES DECKER RELEASES UPLIFTING NEW HOLIDAY ALBUM ‘ON THIS HOLIDAY’

JJD slider

(October 26, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) Today, Country pop singer/songwriter Jessie James Decker releases her inspired new holiday album On This Holiday, comprised of timeless holiday favorites powerfully enlivened by the country superstar, as well as stylish new holiday classics. Get it HERE! The new album also features the spirited original, “Baby! It’s Christmas,” which captures Jessie at her vocal best, belting out a radiant tapestry of homespun holiday scenes affectionately unfurled to kick off this Christmas season!

 

The 10-track album (an additional track “My Favorite Holiday” is available exclusively via Target CD purchases) finds Jessie displaying both her countrified command of the holiday repertoire and her ability to put her trademark vocal notches on some of the season’s best loved treasures. Among the tracks are “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” with its infectious-retro backbeat complementing Jessie’s joyful embrace of the song, “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire),” Jessie giving it a slightly more up tempo pacing completed by twangy guitars and her authentic down-home vocal that sets it apart from other renditions. The sultry “Santa Baby” coos and carouses, while the Jessified “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” finds the star strutting her stuff around the evergreen and earning a place alongside Brenda Lee’s definitive version of the holiday staple. “Wonderful Day,” is another original gem with Jessie vocally capturing memorable snapshots of the season. Her plaintive “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” achingly rises to the song’s heartfelt sentiment, with the Latin-tinged “Christmas In Cabo” destined to become a classic holiday getaway song.

 

To celebrate the release, Jessie will be performing a holiday-themed show at City Winery in Nashville on December 5. The intimate performance will feature special guests and showcase the diverse songs from her Epic Records holiday debut album. Fans can purchase tickets to the show HERE! Jessie has also been announced as part of the star-studded lineup for the 2019 Stagecoach Music Festival, held in Indio, CA next spring. The 13th edition of the annual California fest will take place from April 26-28, with Jessie taking the stage on Saturday, April 27.

 

Jessie’s holiday album launch follows a busy autumn for the charismatic star. Recently, the spotlight has been on her rollicking new single “Boots,” which was featured in Just Fab’s fall campaign starring Decker, who recently teamed up with the online retailer for a boot-focused collaboration. She also released a gorgeously illustrated lifestyle book this month, Just Jessie, My Guide to Love, Life, Family, and Food, which arrived as a New York Times Best Seller. The book offers never-before-revealed personal moments and a wider glimpse of her amazing journey. Welcomed by her fans for its embrace of family and Jessie’s openness about real life topics, she was also featured on Good Morning America talking about the new book, as well as hosted 2018 American Music Awards red carpet pre-show which was streamed live.

 

Singer, songwriter, TV personality, fashion designer, beauty and lifestyle influencer/entrepreneur, Jessie James Decker has emerged as a multi-platform juggernaut the past five years, juggling fashion brands like her personally designed Kittenish line, successfully partnering with a leading makeup brand, and co-starring in her own hit reality show Eric & Jessie: Game On, on E!, alongside her husband, retired football star Eric Decker. But it’s her passion for music that has made the multi-talented artist one of country music’s true breakout firebrands. The singer’s authentic style immediately captivated listeners everywhere on her 2009 self-titled debut, which yielded the gold-certified single “Wanted.” 2016’s Gold soared to #1 on iTunes Top Country Albums chart and took #5 on the Billboard Current Country Albums Chart. Hitting the road, she sold out every date of her tour. In 2017, her powerful live Blackbird Sessions EP clinched #2 on iTunes Top Country Albums Chart and #6 on the Overall Top Albums Chart. She was also tapped to host the Red Carpet at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in addition to landing features from the Los Angeles TimesDU JourPeopleRolling StonePop SugarE!Access HollywoodUS Weekly, and more. She continued to keep it real with her Epic Records debut album, Southern Girl City Lights. Her second studio album, the release went live as the #1 Country Album on iTunes and arrived as a chart-topping entry on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Decker’s first #1 on that platform.
