Country Stars Duet With the King
Thirty-one years after his death, Elvis Presley is singing with the likes of Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Gretchen Wilson, Sarah Evans and LeAnn Rimes, thanks to modern technology. 'Elvis Presley Christmas Duets' is the first Christmas CD of its kind ever produced, and marks yet another milestone in Presley's legacy.
To be as faithful as possible to the original recordings, the legendary RCA Studio B in Nashville -- the same studio that Elvis recorded the 1971 original Christmas session in -- was used.
"We are so pleased that these accomplished artists are collaborating with Elvis in this unique way to make exciting new versions of his Christmas songs. I am sure Elvis would be proud to have worked with them," says Priscilla Presley.
