Chris August The Christmas EP Review & Giveaway @ChrisAugust @FamilyChristian #Christmasmusic

View photo.JPG in slide show
I love Christmas music, and I actually listen to it all year long. I keep my favorites in my Christmas sleigh basket. One year I misplaced one of my favorites and I looked and looked for it. I accused my family of getting rid of it or at least hiding it until Christmas rolled around. I never did find it, but my older daughter gave me a new one for Christmas that year. (It was the best gift I received that year!)

For the past couple of weeks I have been listening to a new Christmas album from Chris August titled The Christmas EP. There are 5 titles on this cd:
  • Come Now Our King
  • Jesus, Savior
  • I'll Be Home For Christmas
  • O Holy Night
  • Tell Me What You Want For Christmas
We have been listening to this cd in the house and in the car. My favorite song is I'll Be Home For Christmas, (maybe because I am so looking forward to having all of my children together again). I love the lyrics to this classic, but Chris puts an upbeat twist to it. My kids like Tell Me What You Want For Christmas the best. They really like the silliness to the lyrics & were even laughing while they listened to it the first time. We love the sound of this cd, my kids think it isn't as Christmassy sounding as the rest of my collection so they said they could listen to it all year. I agree, the words an music go very well together with the feeling of Christmas. It has put me in the mood to get out my Christmas tree and decorations. 

I love the upbeat tune throughout the songs, and we are all singing along. My daughter is already thinking of singing Jesus, Savior at church when it gets closer to Christmas. 

The Christmas EP has definitely gained a spot in my Christmas sleigh basket that is if it ever gets out of the cd player.

You can stay in touch with Family Christian, Chris August, and The McClanahan 7 on their Facebook pages.
