Colbie Caillat Christmas in the Sand CD Review

We are full swing ahead for Christmas and holiday music has been playing all weekend long so far. We added a new album to our Christmas collection this year and you may enjoy it also. Two-time Grammy winning, singer songwriter Colbie Caillat released Christmas in the Sand in late October. This is a great compilation of popular holiday tunes including Baby it's cold outside featuring Gavin DeGraw, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Silver Bells, Merry Christmas Baby featuring Brad Paisley and one of my favorites, Auld Lang Syne. Also included are four original Christmas songs including the humorous,
 mid-tempo title track which was written by Caillat, Jason Reeves and
 Kara DioGuardi.

“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.” says Colbie.

Colbie was on vacation on a small island in Bali when she 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

My thoughts: This album is a fresh, light and fun compilation of some of my favorite Christmas songs along with some fresh and fun originals by Colbie. Having Gavin DeGraw and Brad Paisley adding their vocals was a great touch to this album as both of these singers have great vocals and harmonize well with Colbie. Everyone in the house has been enjoying this album since it arrived. I absolutely love Colbie's version of Auld Lang Syne.
