Here is a look at new Christmas tunes hitting the radio waves in one month.
At the end of October, Love & the Outcome released a new holiday single called 'Christmas Lights.'
"It’ll be a different kind of Christmas for many of us this year. With not being in our house and the loss we’ve all experienced, we needed a song to remind us that there is still something to celebrate!" says the couple that makes up Love & the Outcome on their Facebook page.

Stars Go Dim features Hannah Ellis on a new Christmas single called 'Home.' As one might suspect, the song is about spending time with family back home.
"I wrote this right after I moved to Tennessee about going home for Christmas. It is the true story of what it’s like at my house and how we go back each year," says Stars Go Dim on Facebook.
For the first time, Jordan St.Cyr is releasing two new Christmas singles.
"'Messiah,' originally sung by Francesca Battistelli, captures the anticipation of Jesus’ birth in such a special and powerful way. Singing this song has been such a blessing to me and I pray it is for you as we head into this Christmas season," says St.Cyr on his social media.
The second song, an original written and sung by St.Cyr, is called 'Rejoice' and will be released on November 5.
CAIN has just released a six-song Christmas EP titled Wonderful. The single 'Wonderful' was co-written with Steven Curtis Chapman, and features him as well. Also included is 'Christmas Is Coming' featuring Mac Powell, who co-wrote the single.
"Our parents taught us three things: love Jesus, love each other, and love Christmas. It was more than a holiday to us," says the trio in a conversation with The Christian Beat.
Matthew West has released a whole Christmas album, We Need Christmas.
"These past couple of years have felt like peace is in short supply, hope has been hard to find, and love and joy have been lost for so many," says West on Facebook. "Christmas is a time when our hearts can be powerfully reminded that the peace, hope, love, and joy we all need can still be found in a savior."
Rhett Walker's new single is a rendition of 'All I Want For Christmas Is You,' and is an ode to his wife.
"This year my wedding anniversary marked that I have been married to April for half of my life," says Walker. "So I’ve been sitting, thinking through all that Christ has done in our marriage. Everyone doesn’t have a teenage pregnancy moment like we do... but everyone has that moment where left alone to ourselves, it’s destruction. So, I wanted to cover a song for all the marriages and relationships who have put God at the forefront and are thanking God for their special loved one."
Leanna Crawford released a rendition as well, of Amy Grant's 'Breath of Heaven (Mary's Song).'
"I hope you love it!! Thanks to the QUEEN Amy Grant for writing such an incredible song," says Crawford on Facebook.
Hoping to breath new life into a Christmas classic, Jordan Smith drops his version of 'O Come (Let Us Adore).'
Point of Grace is releasing their fourth Christmas album in their two decades of releasing CCM, called Sing Noel.
"We could never have guessed it would play such a significant role in and throughout our career thus far. Because so many of these songs express the foundation of our beliefs--God so loved the world He gave us Jesus--we consider being 'known' for our Christmas music quite an honor," says the three women, in an interview.
