Summary
Michael W. Smith assembled an all-star cast of guests to record The Spirit of Christmas, his fourth holiday collection. Smith, a mainstay on the Christian charts, applies his crossover appeal on a big, boisterous, warm-hearted Christmas collection that boasts Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Bono, and Michael McDonald as collaborators. The festive big-band sound suits Smith well as he and his guests deliver nostalgic classics like "The Miracle of Christmas, " "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, " and "White Christmas" backed by The London Session Orchestra. -- Editorial Review provided by Timothy Monger for All Music Guide, taken from Barnes And Noble website
