Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
As a latter-day holiday album from Kenny Rogers, The Gift isn't half bad, thanks to the professional production and Rogers' honeyed voice, but it does suffer from uneven material and the occasional indifferent performance. There are enough good moments here to make it worthwhile for hardcore Kenny fans, but not enough to make it of interest to less dedicated listeners.

    Worth The Investment

    Just listening to "Mary Did You Know" was worth the price of this CD. A wonderful CD to listen to during the insane, pressure oriented season of Christmas Buying. Helps to focuse on what the season is really about. Good at anytime of the year. Especially now!

    my favorite Christmas cd!

    This CD is awesome! It's been my favorite for many years now, and my daughter's too! It has such touching music and songs children like too. I'm purchasing one as a gift this year because I feel I can't go wrong buying something that gives me so much joy.

    Awesome!!

    My husband and I purchased this CD in Branson, Missouri while on vacation. I love the songs and Kenny sings them so well. Listening to the words brings renewed meaning to Christmas. I played it while we assembled Christmas baskets at church today and had several requests to find out where it could be purchased locally.
