It's an early Christmas present for country music fans! Darius Rucker is preparing a Christmas album, and that's not all the news -- he has a very special country guest on the record.

Sheryl Crow announced on Facebook that she would be appearing on Rucker's Christmas offering.

The two country stars look pretty pumped in the photo, both sporting big grins and looking merry about Christmas.

The 'Homegrown Honey' singer has kept mum on the project, but since Crow let the news slip, more details may be emerging soon.

This is Rucker's first Christmas offering; he's had a couple of songs -- 'Winter Wonderland' and 'Candy Cane Christmas' -- on country compilation albums, but the upcoming project is his first full album of Christmas songs.
