about

The songs on this album were selected, arranged, rehearsed, and recorded in twenty-four hours at 1010 Kenyon Avenue in Knoxville at the inconvenience of many friends who sacrificed sleep by allowing us to steer their home along a whirlwind of cheer.

Each song was allotted two hours, and only the first couple took longer. We finished with about one hour to spare, tired but completely filled with holiday spirit.

One song will be released for each of the twelve days of Christmas.

Track Name: Christmas List
I need:
two more fires to feel the spirit,
two more coals to start the flames,
two more strings on evergreens so I can tell it's Christmas,
a couple more years before my gears shift,
a couple good months between the two,
and two long nights to realize we're running from the same things.

But, Christmas time is here!
Feel the love and cheer!
Christmas time is here!
Don't worry about the new year.
Today is Christmas Day!

I need:
one more tree to pin my life on,
one more snow to lock me in,
one more song to sing along and keep the spirit moving,
more good days before the Spring starts,
more good trips to laugh about,
more good thoughts before I'm lost to staring at the clock,
another chance to see my plans out,
another song to pull me through,
and at least six more states before I'm old enough to say I've lost.

But, Christmas time is here!
Feel the love and cheer!
Christmas time is here!
Don't worry about the new year.
Today is Christmas Day!

I need:
a little hope to keep me fighting,
a little time to stay alive,
a few more words than I can learn about what is to come,
love to live on,
lives to work for,
a mind for comfort,
a time for purpose,
and one good miracle I know could really do me service.

But, Christmas time is here!
Feel the love and cheer!
Christmas time is here!
Don't worry about the new year!
Today is Christmas Day!
