Colbie Caillat
Christmas In the Sand

The “Bubbly” singer-songwriter with Taylor Swift syndrome takes on Christmas using more rhythm than usual. “Merry Christmas, Baby” – a duet with Brad Paisley – morphs into a Bonnie Raitt/Sheryl Crow rock ‘n soul shaker.  “Santa Baby” and “keeps that trend going. She duets with longtime songwriting partner Jason Reeves on the Nashville pop of “Every Day Is Christmas,” and. The Gavin DeGraw duet on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a bit irritating, thanks to its compromised tempo., but it’s probably doesn’t hold a candle against the oddball lyrics of the Kara DioGuardi/Reeves title cut (“Hawaiian tropic on my skin/a candy cane of peppermint”) or the album cover expressing hot fun in the winter time.

Release Date: 23 October 2012
