“We start celebrating Christmas early around here,” Thomas Rhett says in a new Instagram post. “Hope y’all do too.”

And with that, he announced the release of two new recordings: an original called “Christmas In The Country” as well as “The Christmas Song.”

“Christmas in the Country,” as the title suggests, is a country song about the holiday. “The Christmas Song” takes a very traditional approach (including a string section) to the classic Nat “King” Cole song from 1946. The song has often been covered over the decades: Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, John Denver and Celine Dion are among the artists who have recorded or performed it.

Check out both of the songs below.
