As Christmas near, the flow of new albums slows to a trickle. Heading our list this week are offerings from two major country stars, Luke Bryan and Canadian Brett Kissel, while T.I. is another notable.

Barbra Streisand releases a live album that features many of her biggest hits, and My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James covers his favourite artists. Fast-emerging folk songstress Piper Hayes tops the Canadian contingent.
