Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson released today her first Christmas album, “Wrapped In Red.”

Clarkson is set to air her very first Christmas special on NBC. Fans can be a part of this special taping Wednesday at The Venetian in Las Vegas. For tickets, please visit www.venetian.com.

The holiday record includes a version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” featuring former Tulsan Ronnie Dunn as well as a collaborative cover of “Silent Night” with Chockie native Reba McEntire and Owasso resident Trisha Yearwood.

The album will feature new tracks such as the single, “Underneath The Tree,” and title track, “Wrapped In Red,” as well as Christmas favorites, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Blue Christmas,” “Run Run Rudolph,” “Please Come Home For Christmas” and many more.

“Underneath The Tree,” was written by the “American Idol” winner and hit songwriter/producer Greg Kurstin as well as produced by Kurstin. Clarkson enlisted Kurstin who was one of her partner’s on the Grammy Award-winning album “Stronger.”

Since bursting onto the music scene 10 years ago, Clarkson has released five studio albums (“Thankful,” “Breakaway,” “My December,” “All I Ever Wanted,” Stronger), one greatest hit album, sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, 10 million albums in the U.S. and has had 10 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. She is the recipient of three Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, one Country Music Association Award and 12 Billboard Music Awards.

Clarkson’s last studio effort, “Stronger,” debuted at No. 2 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Digital Albums Chart. The album produced the smash singles, “Mr. Know It All” and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” which marks Kelly’s ninth and 10th Top 10 hit. “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” was No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart for two consecutive weeks (three weeks total), marking her third No. on the Hot 100 chart. Clarkson’s “Stronger” was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album. Clarkson released “Greatest Hits – Chapter 1″ last year, which featured three new tracks as well as a compilation of some of her greatest hits to date. She spent the summer touring with Maroon 5 on the Honda Civic Tour as well as recording the Christmas album.
