A Merry Little Christmas is a Christmas album by American singer/songwriter/producer Linda Ronstadt, released in 2000. It was the final release under Ronstadt's recording contract with the Elektra/Asylum Records label for whom Linda had recorded since 1973 (twenty-seven years to that point). John Boylan returned to the scene as Linda's producer - and manager - for this disc. He remains her official representative as of 2014.
It was the biggest-selling Holiday album of the 2000 Christmas season. It peaked at #179 on Billboard's main album chart and has continued to sell year in and year out. Among the highlights of this disc are Ronstadt's duet with the late Rosemary Clooney on the perennial track "White Christmas" and her ultra-somber interpretation of Joni Mitchell's "River".
