Even today's mega music stars where once young kids with dreams of fame and glory. Many have gone on to release their own Christmas songs and albums for fans. For the holidays, our friends of Snakkle.com took a look back at these singing sensations way back before the fame, when the stars were still just in their eyes.
Taylor is a real Christmas baby: she was actually born in December ON a Christmas Tree farm. So, just what was on Taylor's wish list for Santa as a kid? A recording contract that says she can write and sing her own songs! Taylor is the youngest person ever to solely write and sing a No. 1 country song "Our Song," and she already has her own Christmas album on the market, "Taylor Swift Holiday Collection" released in 2007 and recorded when she was only 17.
This country super star was performing professionally by the age of 13. On Christmas Day, Paisley and his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, from the popular "Father of the Bride" films, are most likely to be singing Paisley's single "364 Days To Go" from his holiday CD "Brad Paisley Christmas."
While she has yet to release her own full Christmas album, Carrie Underwood has several holiday songs for the season to keep fans thrilled. The "American Idol" winner sings "What Child Is This" on the album "Now That's What I Call Christmas! Vol. 4" and a rendition of "Do You Hear What I Hear" is on the 2007 album, "Hear Something Country: Christmas." In addition, the singing star offers up her version of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" on the 2009 album, "A Very Special Christmas 7" and even has her own duet with Elvis Presley- "I'll Be Home for Christmas"on "Elvis Presley Christmas Duets."
Kellie Pickler, recently showed her fans and the world the real meaning of Christmas: unselfish love. The country star shaved her blonde hair down to a buzz cut to show her support for her best friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to undergo chemotherapy. For her fans who missed her belting out "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" on last year's TV special "CMA Country Christmas," you can listen to Pickler sing the same song on "A Very Country Christmas" and make sure to also grab the CD "Hear Something Country Christmas" (2007) for her rendition of the cute classic "Santa Baby."
