Luke Bryan is getting fans into the Christmas mood a little bit early this year.

The 41-year-old country crooner has released his own take on the holiday classic, “O Holy Night.”

In this clip, which features the recorded track, Luke showcases his vocal range while accompanied by piano and strings. The final product is utterly beautiful, and adds just the right touch to any Christmas gathering.

Releasing a holiday-themed tune this year was rather fitting for Luke, as he admits he always looks forward to the Christmas season. In fact, the father of sons, Bo, 9, and Tate, 7, previously told Rare Country and other media outlets that he prefers to slow things down during the annual celebration.

“I’m not one of those that likes to [clean up too soon,]” he admitted. “I want to see the wrapping paper everywhere for a little bit. I don’t want to get the garbage bags out, so Christmas can last a little longer. It’s tough to slow the boys down. They go through their presents quickly.”

Luke’s “O Holy Night” is not included on a full Christmas album, but the carol does follow his 2008 recording of “Run Run Rudolph” from the “Country For Christmas” compilation album.
