The 2017 Holiday Music & Movies Ultimate Guide Has Arrived!

Written by

2017 Holiday Wish GuideI've been keeping track of the latest in holiday music and movies for years - each year delivering an ultimate guide to what's hot in all-new releases and reissues. On the music front, the last couple of years have been light, but for 2017 there's a ton of new holiday music to enjoy, and as part of the ongoing rollout of The Rock Father™ Magazine's annual Holiday Wish Guide comes the 2017 Holiday Music & Movies Ultimate Guide!

While it's not necessarily everything that's been released this year, I cut out the clutter to focus on some of the best of the best - and this list will grow and evolve in the weeks ahead! From new albums by Brady Rymer, Gwen Stefani, Lindsey Sterling and Cheap Trick, to singles from Bret Michaels and the 69 Eyes, there's something for everyone, including updated albums from Josh Groban, Blake Shelton, Pentatonix and more.

With movies and specials on Blu-ray and DVD, family is a big thing, with new titles from PJ Masks, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, PAW Patrol and more. There's new movies including Nickelodeon's Albert: A Small Tree With A Big Heart and Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You!

See the full list here, and check back early and often! As late-breaking titles are announced, we'll be updating the list with the ones worth checking out!
