"Everybody there [at J Records] is against that, which makes me want to do it even more," Stewart tells Ireland On-line. "Apparently, the idea didn't test well, whatever that means."

Stewart goes on to explain that J Records CEO Clive Davis would rather him take a more festive direction, making the last album in the 'Songbook' series a collection of Christmas songs. But Stewart says he's "not into that so much."
