"I Forgot about 2020 and what a Year it's been. This song gave Me Hope."
As Rolling Stone reported, in a statement, Underwood talked about her new album, "My gift," saying this is the perfect time to focus on what Christmas is about. The star encouraged everyone to rely more on their family.
"Even though it has been a tough year, sometimes I feel like the greatest realizations can come in the worst times," added Underwood, who became a household name after winning Season 4 of "American Idol" in 2005.
Legend co-wrote the song with Toby Gad. Aside from the music video, he will also appear on Underwood's "My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood." The special will premiere on December 3 on HBO Max.

According to Billboard, the set of "My Gift" was produced by Greg Wells. The album includes eight traditional and three original songs. Released on September 25, Underwood's latest album recently earned the singer her eighth total and consecutive No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.
UNDERWOOD'S HUMBLE BEGINNING
When she was 14, Underwood decided to audition for the record label, Capitol Records. They then started a contract. However, it was canceled because of the change in management.
Underwood's big break came after joining "American Idol." Her debut single, titled "Inside Your Heaven," made her the only country artist to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Meanwhile, Legend has worked with several artists, including Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson, and Kanye West. His debut album, "Get Lifted," released in 2004, went platinum. The album earned him three Grammy Awards.
Legend took the Hal David Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007. Since 2019, he has been featured as a coach on the hit singing competition, "The Voice."
