Released just in time for the holiday season of 2012 -- and just as the third season of the hit televised competition The Voice was underway -- Blake Shelton's Cheers, It's Christmas finds the country singer inviting plenty of guests to assist him in the celebration. Naturally, his wife Miranda Lambert stops by -- both on her own for "Jingle Bell Rock" and with her band Pistol Annies for "Blue Christmas" -- but so does his mother Dorothy Shackleford ("Time for Me to Come Home"), Reba McEntire ("Oklahoma Christmas"), Kelly Clarkson ("There's a New Kid in Town"), Michael Bubl? ("Home"), Xenia ("Silver Bells"), and Trypta-Phunk ("The Very Best Time of Year"), making this one bustling Christmas album.
