First, she took daytime television by storm with her highly rated new talk show, now RACHAEL RAY has joined forces with Epic Records to introduce viewers to one of her passions outside the kitchen -- music! The label has announced that it will release a series of soundtracks with songs handpicked by Ray. "I'm thrilled to partner with Epic ... Epic is iconic!" Rachael says. "We've created soundtracks that I would listen to or play at a party, starting off with my picks for Christmas and a funky mix for kids. I start singing holiday songs on Thanksgiving weekend -- that's when my tree goes up as well -- and, the kids' CD is filled with music that both kids and parents might enjoy." The first two soundtrack releases are slated for next month. How Cool Is That Christmas CD hits music stores on October 10, while Rachael Ray's Too Cool For School Mixtape for Kids will be available on October 31. Other titles will be introduced in 2007. Through the Epic deal, Rachael has also created unique cellular voicetones -- ringtones featuring messages from Rachael -- to all major U.S. carriers.
