Info for Merry Christmas, Baby
Edwin McCain delivers some extra holiday cheer this year to his fans by surprising them with his very first Christmas album, "Merry Christmas, Baby." Filled with classics and favorites, "Merry Christmas, Baby" will be available on November 29, 2019 from Saguaro Road Records, a division of Time Life.
"I've snuck a Christmas song or two into my sets over the years, and that's always been a lot of fun," says McCain. "So to be able to do an entire album is a really great feeling and I hope it helps spread a little holiday spirit around."
On "Merry Christmas, Baby," McCain sings heartfelt renditions of beloved songs including "The Christmas Song," "Silent Night" and a rollicking "Jingle Bell Rock." He even pays homage to his life on the road with "Christmas in New Orleans" and "Mele Kalikimaka."
The album features Larry Chaney on guitar, Ivan Neville on piano, Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, clavinet and background vocals, Manolo Yanes on bass, Eddie Bayers on drums, Doug Moffett and Craig Shields on saxophone and Quentin Ware on trumpet.

Called the “great American romantic” by the New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years by balancing his massive pop success with the year-round touring schedule of a tireless troubadour. His hit songs, authentic spirit and surprisingly affable sense of humor keep fans coming back time and time again for nights that feel more like parties with old friends than rock concerts. After recording two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music, McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the US as a solo artist, with his full band or his acoustic trio. Recently, he’s added orchestras to his repertoire, performing with symphonies in select markets where he brings his powerful songs to majestic new heights.
Those enduring love songs (and wedding must-haves) “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More” aren’t just for the romantic at heart; “American Idol” and “The Voice” contestants turn to Edwin’s ballads every single year to help them win over judges and fans alike (just ask last season’s AI winner, Nick Fradiani). Even Justin Bieber has been known to belt out “I’ll Be” during his own concerts.
Earlier this year, McCain suddenly found himself with a whole new crop of fans when his “Flipping Ships” television show debuted on Animal Planet. “Flipping Ships” took him from the chart tops to the boat shop – his very own Boats Have Souls (www.BoatsHaveSouls.com), a restoration outfit dedicated to bringing life back to vessels and customizing them to perfectly fit their new owners. “We started the business to put good boats into good families’ hands by restoring them in ways that might otherwise be financially out of reach,” Edwin explains. Viewers were fascinated by the blood, sweat and the occasional tear that he poured into his renovations while rehabbed boats found new life and new owners, including a few non-profit organizations in his homestate of South Carolina. Just like his songs, Edwin’s boats all have a story to tell; about the people who built them, Edwin’s team who defies all odds to reconstruct them, and the families who take them home.
But his heart remains on the road. Once the “Flipping Ships” season ended, Edwin picked up his guitar once again and returned to the stage. Whenever he can, he likes to drop by favorite club haunts, a comfortable return to his early days that delights both his fans and himself. “The 15-year-old me would have crawled through a river of fire to be the 41-year-old singer/songwriter that I am today, and I remember that. I am incredibly grateful to be able to do this.”
