In her 2020 Christmas album, My Gift, Carrie Underwood collaborated on a heartfelt rendition of “Little Drummer Boy” with her eldest son, Isaiah Fisher. Carrie, along with her husband Mike Fisher, is a proud parent to two sons, Isaiah and Jacob.

Reflecting on a behind-the-scenes video, Underwood shared the backstory of the album’s title and the idea behind featuring her son in a duet. “The Little Drummer Boy is a central song in My Gift — that’s where the title of the album came from,” she revealed. “And it’s one of my absolute favorite Christmas songs. And I started thinking about what would make it extra special, so I have a very special duet partner.”
