About Underneath the Tree

"Underneath the Tree" is a song by American singer Kelly Clarkson, from her sixth studio album and first Christmas album, Wrapped in Red (2013). Written by Clarkson along with Greg Kurstin, who handled its production, it is a Christmas-themed song that sings of gratitude for companionship during the holidays, in which the beloved is being referred as the only present needed "underneath the tree". Accompanied by various instrumental sounds, the song prominently incorporates a Wall of Sound treatment along with sleigh bells and bell chimes to resonate a holiday atmosphere. "Underneath the Tree" was first released to Adult Contemporary radio stations on November 5, 2013, by RCA Records as the lead single from the album. "Underneath the Tree" has been praised by music critics, who considered it as the main highlight of Wrapped in Red and lauded its potential to be a holiday classic. They also favorably compared it to the 1994 modern Christmas standard "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey. The song reached number one on the US and Canadian adult contemporary charts and has since became a recurring Top 40 hit in over eleven regions worldwide.
