Reba McEntire is ready to kick off the holiday season in style. On Oct. 14, the country star will release Reba: The Ultimate Christmas Collection, a curated mix of previously-released, yuletide-ready recordings that includes classics like "White Christmas," "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Winter Wonderland." The collection also includes “I Needed Christmas,” a track featured in her 2021 Lifetime movie, Reba McEntire’s Christmas in Tune.

"I’m excited to share this newly packaged collection of my all-time favorite Christmas songs," McEntire says. "It was so hard to narrow down to just twelve songs, but I hope my fans enjoy this journey through time!"

7 Songs You Didn't Know Glen Campbell Played On

Glen Campbell's name is legendary in country music thanks to his iconic hit songs, but he's also a major figure in music as a whole due to his crossover hits and, especially, because of his work as a session musician. Whether fans know it or not, Campbell left his mark on myriad songs in the 1960s, before and as he was starting his solo career.

When Campbell moved to Los Angeles in 1960, he got a job as a writer and demo singer / player for a publishing company; that led to work as a session musician. Campbell became part of the Wrecking Crew, an in-demand group of session players who worked on songs for everyone from Sonny & Cher to Frank Sinatra. They were producer Phil Spector's go-to house band, but were sometimes uncredited players; the late Leon Russell was also a member.
