'Tis the Season is a Christmas album by American singer Vince Gill and Australian singer Olivia Newton-John, released in the 2000 Christmas season by Hallmark Entertainment. This is Newton-John's first Christmas album, and Gill's third. 'Tis the Season is a collection of classical Christmas songs and has two duets between Gill and Newton-John, as well solo songs by the singers, and two songs by special guests, The Bradford Singers. The instrumentation was orchestrated by the London Symphony Orchestra.[1]

The album only had a limited release through Hallmark Cards stores. Due to Billboard 200 rules at time, it didn't reach any chart. 'Tis the Season wasn't released internationally, but Newton-John's album tracks were released on The Christmas Collection compilation.[2]
