Overview

Re-released this year with bonus tracks, Martina McBride's 1998 Christmas album is a classy pop affair, with nary a dull moment or false note anywhere. McBride's performances, whether on beautiful standards such as Mel Torme's "The Christmas Song," "Silver Bells," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and so forth or on more solemn meditations on the order of "O Holy Night," are models of precision and delicately rendered emotion, utterly absent of cloying sentimentality but rife with the buoyant spirit of the Yuletide. Produced by McBride and Paul Worley, with subtle, evocative arrangements by Dennis Burnside, White Christmas ranks with the greats of its kind.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Martina McBride's White Christmas features the singer's countrified versions of holiday classics like the title track, "The Christmas Song," "Silver Bells," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and "Silent Night." [The album was reissued in 2007 with a slightly re-ordered track list as well as bonus tracks, including "O Holy Night" and "What Child Is This."]
