Faith Hill Brings "Joy To the World" On September 16th With Long Anticipated Christmas Release

    NASHVILLE – June 16, 2008 - The much rumored, highly anticipated Christmas album from 5-time Grammy Award winner Faith Hill will bring Joy To The World on Tuesday, September 16th. The 11-song CD, which already has the industry buzzing, combines some of the season’s most recognizable and beloved classics, with one of America’s most respected vocalists.

    The recording, which was two years in the making, features The Nashville Orchestra as well as the London-based choirs Metro Voices and The London Oratory School Boys Choir. Grammy Award winner David Campbell (Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, Beyonce) provides a newly composed full orchestration for “Joy,” which gives such classics as “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “Winter Wonderland” and “Holly Jolly Christmas” a fresh, unique, and at times big band groove.

    "I had a very clear vision for the type of Christmas album that I wanted to make,” said Faith. “Indicative of the big band orchestras of the 40s and 50s, with a full compliment of horns, stings, woodwinds, percussion and chorales. David's orchestrations were a gift. They embodied everything that I could have imaged; unique and beautiful, and yet they seem as though they were always intended for these songs."

    Joy To The World will also feature the original single “A Baby Changes Everything,” written by Nashville songwriters Tim Nichols, Craig Wiseman and K.K. Wiseman. It features Faith at her finest, delivering a powerful and emotional vocal with her usual passion and precision.

    “Joy To The World” is co-produced by Dan Huff, Byron Gallimore and Faith. It was engineered by Allen Sides.
