Christmas will come early for Lauren Alaina fans when she releases her version of the holiday classic "Grown Up Christmas List" on iTunes on Dec. 10.

The digital track, produced by Nathan Chapman, is released in conjunction with the 26th anniversary of Special Olympics' "A Very Special Christmas" holiday music series.

Alaina is a Special Olympics ambassador. Chapman, an alumnus of Lee University, is known for producing Taylor Swift's Grammy Award-winning album "Fearless," and he also works with some of the top stars in Nashville today.

Alaina is set to perform "Grown Up Christmas List" and "Jingle Bells" during NBC's "Christmas In Rockefeller Center," which will air Dec. 4.

The Rossville singer will also perform "Grown Up Christmas List" as part of the first holiday edition of CMT's "Live @ CMT" series. The program, which launches Dec. 2 on CMT.com, will feature performances of some of Alaina's favorite Christmas songs - "O Holy Night," "Jingle Bells" and "Silent Night."
