On creating a Christmas album:
"I've been dying to make a Christmas album. I always get asked what genre I'm in: 'Is this country or pop or rock? What are you?' And what's cool about making the Christmas album was, ' Oh, there are no limitations! We can do whatever we want!'"

On her non-traditional song "Just For Now":
"I just love that song. That was my family Christmas-highly dysfunctional, like, 'Can we just stop for like five minutes and have like a normal Christmas setting?"

On Christmas' true meaning:
"The thing about Christmas is that it almost doesn't matter what mood you're in or what kind of a year you've had - it's a fresh start. I'm going to clear the air and take stock of the good that's happening."
