Twice-inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stewart (as a solo artist and as a member of The Faces), released "Merry Christmas, Baby," his first holiday album, in October via Verve Records. The covers collection debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and at No. 4 in the U.K. Albums chart.

Stewart also unleashed his first memoir, "ROD: The Autobiography," in September. The career-spanning book currently sits at No. 24 on the New York Times list for best-selling hardcover nonfiction.

Grammy-winning Steve Winwood last released "Nine Lives," which surfaced in 2008. The fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's hits include "Gimme Some Lovin," "Higher Love," and "Can't Find My Way Home."
