The Petersens release their first Christmas album titled Christmas with the Petersens on November 6, 2020.

The Petersens began working on their Christmas album in February of 2020 at Digi Grass Studios in Ozark, MO. Due to COVID-19, the recordings were put on hold. When Julianne started college in Arkansas, the Petersens found a recording studio, Haxton Road, in Arkansas so Julianne could travel easily back and forth from college to finish the project.

The album was mixed and mastered by Troy Dixon. The photography was done by Aaron Clark Photography. Album design was by Austin Meyer.

    This is one of the finest Christmas albums I have ever heard. The musicianship and vocals are, as always , flawless and the choice of tracks is inspired. The combined vocals on Silent Night are simply gorgeous and What Child Is This sees a an outstanding vocal from Emmett. There is not a bad track on this CD but the stand-outs for me are God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and O Come, O Come Emmanuel. Julianne’s vocal performance is dripping with passion and talent and sends shivers down the spine. Buy this album, you will not be disappointed.
