Well this looks very cool, an Americana Christmas album from the good folk at New West Records, one of our favourite alt-country record labels.
An Americana Christmas is a collection of classic Christmas songs and brand new holiday recordings from the icons and today’s current stars of the Americana genre. It features 16 songs including 6 brand new recordings exclusive to the collection.
Nearly every artist on this compilation has either charted on the Americana Music Charts or received a nomination or award from the Americana Music Association. The Common Linnets, the lone exception, are one of Europe’s biggest Americana acts having sold over 150,000 copies of their debut release across Europe and have contributed a brand new recording.
