Kacey Musgraves has made two of the better pop-country albums in recent memory, and this holiday season she'll give us a Christmas album. It's called A Very Kacey Christmas and it features eight holiday favorites plus four originals, and guest spots by Willie Nelson, Leon Bridges and The Quebe Sisters. It's due out October 28 followed by a vinyl release on November 18. That's the artwork above and you can check out the tracklist below.

But that's not all. More of your favorite artists have newly-announced Christmas albums coming as well. Country legend Loretta Lynn, who has surely influenced Kacey (and like Kacey, collaborated with Willie Nelson this year) (and like Kacey, was a highlight of SXSW 2016), will release White Christmas Blue on October 7. It's her first Christmas album in 50 years, and it features the title track (a new original song), some new versions of old songs, and a handful of Christmas classics. That artwork and tracklist is below too.

Zooey Deschanel and M Ward's collaborative project She & Him will also release a Christmas album, Christmas Party, on October 28. It features appearances by Jenny Lewis, The Chapin Sisters, and Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. They take on popular classics, and also include a cover of cult-folk singer Vashti Bunyan's "The Coldest Night of the Year." Artwork and tracklist below.

And finally -- for now at least -- Neil Diamond, who was calling Brooklyn home way way way before it was hip, will release Acoustic Christmas on October 28. It's got a mix of classic covers and originals (and two Target-exclusive bonus tracks). Head below for that artwork and tracklist.
