In 2021, Allan released a Christmas compilation album also titled Please Come Home for Christmas. The album contained his famous version of the song alongside other holiday recordings he made through the years.
Watch Gary Perform “Please Come Home For Christmas” On CMT Campfire Sessions
Also in 2021, Allan was a guest on CMT Campfire Sessions. The program features “intimate” performances from country stars around a campfire.
