My Christmas Project (Covenant, 2006)
Reviewed by Brian Wahlert
He stopped recording in 2000 to start a family, but now he's back with two CDs, "Out of the Storm" and this Christmas EP. It's an odd little holiday release - it contains five songs, but White only sings on three. "White Christmas" and "The First Noel" are pleasant enough studio recordings, featuring White's thin little-boy voice. He tries to rock out, but fails on a live rendition of "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town." "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" is a lite-jazz instrumental, arranged by White. The last listed track on the album is "The Heart of Christmas," a spoken-word narrative of the Christmas story, penned by White. The album closes with a hidden track - a recording of laughter and conversation from a Christmas of White's childhood.
With so much great country Christmas music available, there's really not much to recommend this album.
