“We’ve all sung in church our whole lives,” the Duck Commander CEO said, “and we do lots of karaoke.”
“There are funny parts, serious parts, a little prayer, some of our antics,” he said.
“It’s got us all over it.”
The Robertson family has invited special guests George Strait, Alison Krauss, Luke Bryan and Josh Turner to join them on the 13-track album, which was produced by Buddy Cannon.

“First time at New York Fashion Week,” Korie Robertson told Us Weekly.
“We’ve been to New York before, of course, but first time at Fashion Week and we’ve had a great time. We’re so proud and so happy about the partnership with Sherri Hill. She’s been awesome. And they’re a family business like we are, so we feel really great.”
Sadie Robertson said she likes to design dresses that are “unique” and “daddy-approved”, but she also has a celebrity fashion icon that she admires.
“I’ve been saying Carrie Underwood,” she said.
“She’s a country girl and she dresses very nice, classy.”
Korie Robertson also revealed that Sadie will be lending her voice to the upcoming Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas album.
“Sadie sings on it. Yeah, she has a couple of solos,” Korie Robertson said.
“And Willie wrote a song for it, so it’s really a lot of fun.”
Fans of Duck Dynasty will get a special treat this holiday season when the Robertson family release their own Christmas album.

The Duck Dynasty family has been in a Darius Rucker music video. They’ve hung out with Kellie Pickler, they’ve been to two CMT Music Awards shows, they are good buddies with Jason Aldean.
“A Robertson family Christmas album,” said Korie Robertson.
“And the title is, you can probably guess it, Duck the Halls.”

“We do have some special guests, but we’re not announcing them yet,” she added.
“Got some things in the works and hopefully we’ll let y’all know about that pretty soon.”
Duck Dynasty follows the lives of the Louisiana-based Robertson family and their multi-million dollar company Duck Commander – a fabricator of top-of-the-line duck calls and decoys.
The family grew up singing in church and has many musical members who will be showcasing their talents on the album.
“Faith, family and ducks – in that order – have always been our priorities,” said reality star Willie Robertson, the CEO of Duck Commander.
He added: “Christmas is an important holiday for us not only because of our strong faith but also our holiday family traditions. We’re having a great time making this album. We hope you enjoy it.”
