Wow, it is only August and already there’s talk of Christmas CDs in the Christian music scene. I don’t know if Steven Curtis Chapman is still popular in Christian music, but my guess is that he is, so with that said, you’ll be glad to know he’ll have a Christmas CD out this year called “Joy,” due on October 16, 2012. Then, in 2013, look for a full studio album, his first since 2007, when he had a hit with “Cinderella,” a song I like a lot.

Back to “Joy” — this will be SCC’s fourth Christmas album! Hasn’t he released enough already? Back in 1995, there was “The Music of Christmas,” followed by 2003’s “Christmas is All in the Heart,” followed by “All I Really Want For Christmas” in 2005. Why another one? Because when SCC does a Christmas album, 400,000-500,000 copies get sold– ca-ching! —Mark Weber
