Praytell – It’s Almost Christmas, Vol. 2

Praytell – It’s Almost Christmas, Vol. 2

“It’s Almost Christmas, Vol. 2” is a festive and heartfelt holiday treat. The duo, Praytell, bring you to their parlor to celebrate with them while their “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” roasting chestnuts on an open fire on “The Christmas Song/I’ll Be Seeing You,” or frolicking through the trees on a ‘one horse open sleigh.’ Overall, this is a very intimate collection of songs and the duo’s style is very pleasant. This is exemplified as they close out the album tenderly with “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” and “Silent Night.”

Josh Turner – I Serve a Savior

Josh Turner I Serve a Savior MCA Nashville I still remember Turner’s debut and just how excited I was to hear what I thought was the epitome of style for country music. His booming baritone stirred up memories of when mom and dad played a lot of ‘70’s country music around the home. I wasn’t […]
