The New Andy Williams Christmas Album is a live Christmas album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was digitally recorded live in concert at the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre in Branson, Missouri in 1993 and released by the LaserLight division of Delta Music Inc. in 1994.[2] It includes performances of songs that he had previously recorded for his four solo holiday releases as well as a new spoken word track ("Jimmy Bishop Christmas Column") that briefly summarizes the life of Jesus Christ.

The album marked Williams's first appearance on the Billboard 200 album chart in 20 years when it debuted there in December 1994 and reached number 137.[3] It also peaked at number 40 that year on Billboard's Christmas Albums chart and made appearances both there and on the Top Pop Catalog Albums chart in 1995 and 1996.[3]

The concert was also broadcast on PBS television stations in 1993[3][4] and on October 4, 1994, became available in its entirety on home video in the VHS format under the title The Andy Williams Christmas Show.[5] This 78-minute presentation was released on DVD in 1999.[6]
