Not Your Mother's Chrismas Album - Music City Unsigned

Not a Christmas goes by in my house where Nat King Cole's buttery voice isn't heard down the halls. But with the Christmas classics I like to add in a little of the new, especially from many of the great artists featured here. Music City Unsigned has a love for those same artist and has released their first album. Music City Unsigned Family Christmas is a great collection of Christmas tunes from the burgeoning Nashville artists. The album includes music from Amy Stroup, Jenny & Tyler, Andy Osenga and Daniel Ellsworth who have all been featured here as well as many other great Nashville artists.

On this Christmas Eve add a little new music to your Christmas music playlist with this great holiday mix. Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Playlist 2010 Is Here!

It's that time again! It's Christmas and the season is in full swing. I've already been in a snow storm, built my first snow man, put up our Christmas tree and been to two holiday parties... and it's only December 7th! This is always a busy season for everyone but I hope you all can take time to make a cup of hot cocoa, sit on the couch by your Christmas tree with someone you love and turn on the holiday tunes. I may not be able to help you with most of these things but I can give you some great holiday music to listen to. Remember that this time is about the gift of love and grace that we have received and should pass on to our family and friends. Many blessings to all of you this Christmas!! Also if you are looking for some new Christmas albums to buy this year I would highly recommend the new Dave Barnes and Uncle Daddy records released just a few weeks ago! Also you can download free Christmas songs from The Civil Wars HERE. Merry Christmas! Stay tuned for my favorite albums of 2010!

Coldplay - Christmas Lights

I just love Christmas time. Last night my roommates and two of our good guy friends went to buy a Christmas tree. After 3 tree lots we finally found the perfect one. It was all tied up and I just had a feeling that it was our tree. "Open that one" I told our helper and as the branches were released from the twine I knew it was the one. We all agreed and now its in our apartment all decorated and so pretty. I just love Christmas time! I especially love new Christmas songs. Here is one just released by Coldplay titled, "Christmas Lights". (Please note the violin playing Elvis trio. My favorite part)

You can find the song on iTunes here:
