Whitney Duncan is back with a Christmas single just in time for the holiday season.
The singer, who is working on a new solo project after her stint with country trio Post Monroe, decided to cut a Christmas song while in the studio working on her new music.
The Tennessee native says didn’t have to think twice about which holiday tune to put her spin on.
“Home Alone is my favorite holiday movie so ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas‘ was an easy choice for me,” she shared with Country Now. “Hope y’all like it!”
Duncan recorded a festive video to pair with her version of the holiday classic. Featuring shots of her in the studio mixed in with footage of Christmas trees, presents and multi-colored Christmas lights, the performance clip allows Duncan’s incredible vocals to take center stage.
The songstress is no stranger to holiday music. She previously released a cover of Mariah Carey’s iconic “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in 2009.
Check out the just-released video for Duncan’s version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” below.
Whitney Duncan made her debut on the country music scene in 2008 with songs like “When I Said I Would” and “Skinny Dippin’” from her Warner Bros. Nashville debut, Right Road Now. She gained national recognition when she appeared on the 23rd season of Survivor and later, the 25th season of The Amazing Race.
Duncan’s new solo project is expected to be released in 2020.
