Presley Set For Chart Return With Christmas Country Duets
ELVIS PRESLEY is set for a return to the charts, thanks to a series of festive duets with country music's biggest divas.
Technological wizards are teaming The King with the likes of Carrie Underwood, Sara Evans, LeAnn Rimes, Wynonna Judd and Gretchen Wilson to record seasonal hits for a Christmas album.
Evans will sing Silent Night with Elvis; Judd will join him for Santa Claus is Back in Town; and Underwood will duet on I'll Be Home for Christmas.
The songs will all be recorded at Nashville, Tennessee's RCA Studio B, where Presley taped his original 1971 Christmas album.
The legend's widow Priscilla Presley says, "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."
