Time to Get Festive: Jess Moskaluke’s “A Small Town Christmas”

Thinking about how you might begin getting into the holiday spirit? Jess Moskaluke announced her Christmas album last month but I’ll admit, I wasn’t ready to go there. It’s feeling a lot colder and my wish list is growing, so I thought I’d remind you that this 9-track beauty is here and ready for you! A Small Town Christmas features some of my favourite holiday covers from ‘Santa Baby’ to ‘O Holy Night’ and you’ll hear collaborations with Cassadee Pope, Paul Brandt, The Lovelocks and Hunter Brothers!

“Christmas is all about friends and family, so when I thought about making a Christmas record, I knew I wanted as many of my friends on it as I could have,” the recently married Moskaluke explained, in a release. “This record is a collection of the most memorable Christmas songs to me – whether it’s my favourite carol to sing, or my favourite track to listen to, or the song my Mom played on repeat during the holidays as a kid.”

There are holiday shows to go along with this album, catch the magic live by visiting her website.

ICYMI: Brett Kissel Releases Video for “Cecilia”

Have you seen the new video for Brett Kissel’s new single ‘Cecilia’ off We Were That Song? While many of his songs are inspired by his wife ‘Cece’ as he calls her, he did tell me why he HAD to get a song in his catalogue with a little help from High Valley’s Brad Rempel:

Sending Love to Country Fans & Families in Thousand Oaks, California

It’s not the first time we’ve heard about a shooting at a venue where country music is played. As we head into the weekend, I’m thinking about the twelve country music fans who lost their lives to a gunman who opened-fire at Borderline Bar & Grill on College Country Night in Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday. The suspected shooter is also dead.
