California songstress Colbie Caillat's new album "Christmas In The Sand" is out now on Universal Republic. The album which features guest performances from Brad Paisley and Gavin DeGraw is a mix of originals and Christmas classics. Enter here to win a copy of the new album.
Two-time Grammy winning, singer songwriter Colbie Caillat will release her first album of holiday music, CHRISTMAS IN THE SAND, on October 23 on Republic Records. The Malibu-born, platinum recording artist brings her easy going rhythms and breezy style to CHRISTMAS IN THE SAND which features four original Christmas songs including the humorous, mid-tempo title track which was written by Caillat, Jason Reeves and Kara DioGuardi. Caillat also recorded classics like "Merry Christmas Baby," featuring Brad Paisley on vocals and a smokin' guitar, and "Baby It's Cold Outside," featuring Gavin DeGraw on vocals. Grammy winning producer, Ken Caillat, who is Colbie's dad, produced the album.
"I have so many warm and sunny memories of Christmas, literally and figuratively. Christmas means family, tradition, and the spirit of giving and sharing, but when you grow up in California, it can also mean sunshine and a beach day!" says Colbie. "I wanted to share all these wonderful feelings with my fans. It's an album I've always wanted to make and was it was more gratifying having made it with my dad."
It was while she was on vacation on a small island in Bali that Colbie picked the songs to record for this record. "I was staying in this tiny hut," she said. "It was beautiful and sunny and the people were warm and wonderful. But I spent a lot of time listening to Christmas songs – and picked the ones I love to sing most of all. It was perfect for an album called Christmas in the Sand." Other originals on the album are "Mistletoe," written by Colbie Caillat, Stacy Blue, Mikal Blue, "Everyday is Christmas," written by Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves, Kara Dio Guardi and "Happy Christmas," written by Colbie Caillat and Toby Gad.
When Colbie returned from Bali and before heading out on the road for her hugely successful co-headlining summer tour with DeGraw, she and her father, recorded "Christmas In The Sand" at The Village recording studio in Los Angeles.
