David Archuleta - Christmas From The Heart
Another year, another batch of artists who try to join the classics from Nat King Cole, Burl Ives and the rest. In the following pages, we try to bring you the best of whats on slate for the holidays, who will top the charts and who will probably end up in constant rotation at your mom's house as you settle in for the barrage of Christmas music.
And while you may shake your fist at us for starting too early -- it's not even Halloween -- do note that the majority of artists on this list already released their Christmas jams earlier this week (Oct. 13).
The 2009 crop brings a full-length from at least one former "American Idol" -- David Archuleta -- who sings with popular Philippines star Charice Pempengco on " Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." Archuleta co-penned original "Melodies of Christmas," an appropriate move for his second album. He covers familiar ground, too, with regulars "O Holy Night," "Silent Night" and "What Child Is This."
It's a pleasant set that will have to wait for a full-throttle promotion.
Release date: Oct. 13
