The 41-year-old country superstar is releasing his new rendition of “O Holy Night” on Friday, but PEOPLE has an exclusive preview of the song. Bryan’s vocal talent is on full display in the classic carol, which has previously been covered by music superstars such as Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli and Martina McBride. Debby Wong/REX/Shutterstock This isn’t the new American Idol judge’s first foray into holiday music. In 2008, his rocking version of “Run Run Rudolph” off the album Country for Christmas instantly became a must-have on every music fan’s Christmas playlist and hit the charts at No. 42, the second-highest charting of the tune behind only the debut recording by Chuck Berry. Bryan’s sixth studio album What Makes You Country is out Dec. 8. It’s available for pre-order now.
