McPhee spent 2010 touring the country with her album Unbroken, which included the hit single Had It All. She released her first Christmas album in 2010, covering the yuletide classics, featuring an original Christmas song, It's Not Christmas Without You, and climbed the charts with the top-five holiday hit I'll Be Home for Christmas.

McPhee's self-titled debut album exploded onto the Billboard 200 chart in 2007 and landed at No. 2. It was also the best chart debut for a female artist in two years.
