Warner Music Nashville recording artist and hit-making multi-talent Shy Carter is bringing is signature high spirits to holiday classic “This Christmas” alongside the late soul legend Donny Hathaway (listen HERE). The song, originally released in 1970, has become a staple of the season.

“I chose ‘This Christmas’ because it’s my favorite holiday song and it’s one of the most classic, legendary and soulful jams!” Carter shared. “I did my best to make it my own by doing it with a whole lotta energy and a super funky vibe, thanks to my guy Akil Thompson producing it with me.”

He continued, “Donny Hathaway means so much to me because his voice and talent are absolutely one of a kind, and his songs have helped me through life as they reach right down and ignite something deep in my spirit. Also, one of my best friends, Aundre, who is a little older than me, lives in Chicago and was a good friend of Donny’s. He’s told me precious stories that have given me an even stronger connection to his music. I’m beyond grateful that I am able to release this song singing alongside one of the greatest voices of all time. I’m thankful to everyone who made it possible, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.”

Carter recently made waves with his new song “Jesus At The Taco Truck” alongside breakout artist Frank Ray. The track, which earned more than two million views on TikTok in just one month, has earned acclaim from both fans and critics. Billboard called it “a tender, compassionate tribute to the hardships so many face in a quest for freedom and a better life” and declared, “this marks a crucial new release from Carter and Ray.” Meanwhile, MusicRow described it as “an acoustic ballad [that] teams two fine country singers on a lyric about acceptance, tolerance and love for our fellow men” and offered “a tip of the hat and a round of applause to both [artists].” Listen to “Jesus At The Taco Truck” HERE and watch the music video HERE.

Earlier this year, Carter teamed up with Caitlyn Smith for the poignant post-relationship duet “How Did You Sleep” (LISTEN HERE). The celebrated songsmith and recording artist introduced his sound with his 2021 EP The Rest Of Us, which showcased fan favorite tracks such as “Good Love” and “Beer With My Friends” (featuring Cole Swindell and David Lee Murphy). He continues to share more of the soul-country that has made him one of the genre’s brightest emerging artists. An in-demand songwriter and producer whose work spans pop, R&B, country and more, Carter has earned more than a dozen RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications for his collaborations.
