2011 Christian Christmas Roundup
Christian artists were born (or should we say born again?) to create Christmas music. After all, "Christ" is right there in the name of the holiday!

From the outside looking in, it could seem like overkill (the sheer volume practically guarantees at least a few lukewarm covers), but when it comes to marking the birth of a baby they see as a savior, the faithful take this stuff seriously. Here's our take on a half-dozen of the most high-profile new Christmas collections, with details on everything from guest stars to don't-miss tracks.
