Christmas From The Heart is a 1998 holiday album by country music superstar Kenny Rogers.

Overview[edit]

The album was not received well by critics. Rogers sings some tracks, and some tracks are taken from a musical of the same name. It really doesn't work well; "This is truly a bizarre and disappointing album, combining Rogers' bland adult contemporary versions of traditional Christmas songs with obnoxious numbers sung by children."[2]
