Tis' the season already whether you like it or not, for the Christmas Holiday to descend upon us, and many artists are jumping on the proverbial bandwagon. Plus the much anticipated release from Taylor Swift.

1.)Taylor Swift"Red" (Bonus package, featuring a "Red" rubber bracelet, sticker and a note from Swift)- We will never ever get back together again....famous last words from Ms. Taylor who said in a recent interview that she like to write about her bad relationships because it's fun. Ouch.

2.)Lady Antebellum - "On This Winter's Night" (Christmas album) I honestly have to say that I am a big fan of this trio and look forward to some Christmas classics countryfied!

3.) Colbie Caillat  - "Christmas in the Sand" (guests: Brad Paisley, Gavin DeGraw) Just guessing here but I am assuming that Colbie will be spending this coming holiday somewhere warm in a nice chair on the beach. Call me old fashion but I prefer a white Christmas. Cool collaborations though.

Other releases out this week:

-Neal Schon (Journey guitarist)     "The Calling" (former Journey drummer Steve Smith plays on all 12 tracks; guests: keyboardists Jan Hammer and Igor Len)

-Stone Sour     "House of Gold & Bones Part 1"

-Karyn White     "Carpe Diem" (her first album in more than 18 years)
