NASHVILLE, Tenn.â€”September 30th, 2014–GRAMMYÂ® and GMA Dove Award-winning artist Guy Penrod celebrates the season early this year with his debut holiday recording, Christmas, available today at retailer and digital outlets everywhere, including Cracker Barrel Old Country StoreÂ®.
Christmas (Gaither Music Group/Servant Records) captures 15 seasonal favorites including â€œTennessee Christmas,â€ featuring Amy Grant and Vince Gill, as well as â€œTwelve Days of Christmas,â€ which is a family affair featuring vocals from his eight children and his wife, Angie.
The recording, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Michael Omartian (Trisha Yearwood, Rod Stewart, Amy Grant and others), showcases Penrodâ€™s country-tinged vocal style and heartfelt renditions of â€œWinter Wonderland,â€ â€œHave Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,â€ â€œSilent Night, Holy Night,â€ â€œSleigh Ride,â€ â€œLittle Drummer Boy/We Three Kings,â€ as well as other holiday staples.
â€œAt our house the Christmas season begins and ends with music.Â We wouldnâ€™t think of putting up the tree or making cookies without it. We rely on music to ignite the Christmas spirit and keep it alive throughout the season,â€ Penrod said.
The release will air as part of a special TV offer on Dish TV, DirecTV, AT&T Uverse, GaitherTV, TBN, RFD, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN. It will also air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.Â It is featured in HOMECOMING Magazine.
