Although Trisha Yearwood had recorded with her husband Garth Brooks before and sang backing vocals on many of his songs, this album is their first joint album. It is a mix of familiar favorites and some new songs, however only some of these song are duets. It was released on November 11, 2016, the same day that Brooks' 10-disc box set, The Ultimate Collection, was released via Target. A Walmart exclusive that bundled Christmas Together with Brooks' new album Gunslinger was released a week later.
The album debuted at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums and No. 2 on the Top Holiday Albums chart, with 21,000 copies sold in its first week. It has sold 194,800 copies in the United States as of November 2017.
The Walmart exclusive bundled with Gunslinger debuted at No. 14 with 6,600 copies sold, and reached No. 3 on that chart the following week, selling 23,000 copies that week. The bundle has sold 81,700 copies as of January 2017.
