Tonight Hallmark premiered a new movie called It’s Christmas, Eve, starring LeAnn Rimes. If you’re wondering about some of the songs she sings during the movie, we have the answers for you here. Rimes produced three new, original Christmas songs just for tonight’s movie: It’s Christmas Eve, The Gift of Your Love, and You and Me and Christmas.
In fact, Rimes recorded a soundtrack for this movie that she released on October 12. The title song that she co-wrote and sang for the movie is one of three original songs that she wrote. Of course, it’s called “It’s Christmas, Eve.” She told Variety that for this Christmas song, she wanted to record something that “immediately feels like a classic that you grew up listening to. It’s a love song of hope, togetherness and a remembrance of what’s most important in life, creating memories with the ones we love. I don’t know if I’ve yet made it through this song without crying. It tugs at my heart. The song is beautifully woven throughout the movie until you finally hear it in its entirety. Filming the scene where I sang the song was incredibly emotional for me. When the director yelled ‘cut’ I could see that the whole crew was crying with me.”

Darrell Brown co-wrote “It’s Christmas, Eve” and co-produced the album.
