A Paul Brandt Christmas: Shall I Play for You? is the first Christmas album by Canadian country music singer Paul Brandt. While some of the tracks are covers of traditional songs, others are covers of more modern Christmas material. "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy", a duet with Terri Clark, is a cover of the Buck Owens song, and "Run Run Rudolph" is a cover of the Johnny Marks song. Additionally, "Six Tons of Toys" is a cover of a Dave Dudley song, which itself is a rewrite of Dudley's signature song "Six Days on the Road".
