    Singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat, known for her summery, beachy, easy, breezy, Cali vibe, will release her first album of holiday music, Christmas in the Sand on October 23 via Republic Records. It's aptly titled, given the timbre and tone of Caillat's music.

    The album will feature four original Christmas songs including the humorous, mid-tempo title track which was written by Caillat, Jason Reeves and Kara DioGuardi. Caillat also recorded classics like "Merry Christmas Baby," featuring Brad Paisley on vocals and a smokin' guitar, and "Baby It's Cold Outside," featuring Gavin DeGraw on vocals. Grammy winning producer, Ken Caillat, who is Colbie's dad, produced the album.

    So it's not just a holiday album. It's all in the Caillat family.

    "I have so many warm and sunny memories of Christmas, literally and figuratively. Christmas means family, tradition, and the spirit of giving and sharing, but when you grow up in California, it can also mean sunshine and a beach day!" said the singer."I wanted to share all these wonderful feelings with my fans. It's an album I've always wanted to make and was it was more gratifying having made it with my dad."

    It was while she was on vacation on a small island in Bali that Colbie picked the songs to record for this record. "I was staying in this tiny hut," she said. "It was beautiful and sunny and the people were warm and wonderful. But I spent a lot of time listening to Christmas songs – and picked the ones I love to sing most of all. It was perfect for an album called Christmas in the Sand."

    Other originals on the album are "Mistletoe," written by Colbie Caillat, Stacy Blue, Mikal Blue, "Everyday is Christmas," written by Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves, Kara DioGuardi and "Happy Christmas," written by Colbie Caillat and Toby Gad.

    Are you going to enjoy Christmas in the Sand with Colbie? You better! Add this to your holiday music rotation, especially if you live in a warm region.
