Tasha Layton Celebrates The Season With Full-Length Holiday Debut

Nov 08 2022

BEC Recordings' chart-topping singer/songwriter Tasha Layton is set to herald the season with her full-length holiday debut, This Is Christmas, November 11, before hitting the road for one of the year’s most anticipated outings-the star-studded 2022 K-LOVE Christmas Tour.


Showcasing a range of timeless and new selections, the 10-track This Is Christmas was produced by Layton’s husband, GRAMMY® and Dove Award winner Keith Everette Smith. The project features four originals co-penned by Layton: the worshipful title-cut; the R&B-infused “Giving Christmas Away"; the tender longing of "Make It To Christmastime"; and “Comfort and Joy,” a timely reminder of Christ’s promise of peace to a hurting world.

This Is Christmas also includes Big Band tour de forces “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Diddly Squat,” and “Hang Up Your Stockin'”; a wistfully classic rendition of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”; Layton’s soaring take on the sacred favorite “O Holy Night”; and album closer "Somewhere In My Memory," from the 1990 Hollywood blockbuster "Home Alone."

“The central theme of this project is comfort and joy,” shares Layton. “The holidays can be a difficult time for so many, so my prayer is that people can find the true meaning of the season through these songs, and ultimately in the joy God so freely offers to us through His Spirit."

"Christmas is so important to our family because of our faith and the way the holiday season brings us all together," she adds. "For a family who travels so much, it’s important for us to be home together, to center ourselves and reconnect with God and each other."

Layton will share selections from This Is Christmas during the 2022 K-LOVE Christmas Tour, which also features such top names as Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey, Brandon Heath and Jon Reddick. The tour is slated to hit 11 cities in December, including Chicago, Kansas City and Austin, Texas.

“I am so excited and honored to be a part of the K-LOVE Christmas Tour with these amazing artists,” Layton says. “I can’t wait to share these songs and bring comfort and joy to each show!”
