LeAnn Rimes is back in the swing of things with a new, full-length Christmas album, Today Is Christmas, released in October. The country singer is a big fan of the holidays — she tells Taste of Country Nights it's been Christmas for her all year long.

“I love Christmas. It’s been Christmas for me all year long, which is totally fine," she tells us of feeling festive.

Today Is Christmas features two songs that were co-written by Rimes, as well as several holiday classics you're sure to recognize. Rimes says her sound has evolved because she's grown as an artist.

“I’ve grown up," she admits. "I think I’m just at a different point in my life with a different sound. It’s kind of a soulful, earthier kind of sound but it’s also we throw it back with a bunch of horns … It’s a really cool record. The last year I came out with an EP of Christmas songs and this year we decided to record a full record."

The holiday album is available now, and Rimes will take it to the road via her Today Is Christmas Tour.

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 60 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
