Country music sweetheart Carrie Underwood has had no shortage of iconic duets and encounters, being blessed with the opportunity to collaborate with country legend Vince Gill and the one-and-only Randy Travis early on in her career.
While those names stand out on her vocal resumé, one virtually unrealistic opportunity was made possible by a fan who spliced her version of a song with a rendition recorded by a legend who has passed on.
For his 2008 album Christmas Duets, Elvis Presley‘s iconic voice was mashed with modern artists to make incredible Christmas duets. The album featured Martina McBride, Leann Rimes, Amy Grant, and many more.
Released in 2007, ‘Christmas Duets’ featured country stars like Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rimes and Sara Evans sharing the spotlight with Elvis Presley! Which track is your favorite?

Underwood joined him on the song “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and it has become the ultimate holiday ballad we’ve been yearning for.
Presley’s voice opened up the masterpiece with a soulful tone and raw emotion. Underwood transitioned into her own solo, angelically complementing the cool vocals Presley had just delivered.
