Does Kelly Clarkson have a Christmas album?

A true lover of Christmas, Kelly actually has two festive albums!

They are 'Wrapped Up in Red' which she released in 2013 and 'When Christmas Comes Around...' released in 2021.

Has Kelly Clarkson written any Christmas songs?

A true talent, Kelly has of course put pen to paper and wrote some of her own Christmas music.

'Merry Christmas (To the One I Used to Know)' is a song she wrote amid her divorce to ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

On her Christmas special in 2021, she said: "The whole divorce thing happened and I needed to write it. And then I didn’t know if I was going to release it, because you can be very angry in that state of mind."
