Mercy Me It's Christmas CD

Mercy Me It's Christmas CD 
Thank you FlyBy for this review copy.
I'm a rather old-fashioned, traditional gal when it comes to Christmas music. No one rocks Christmas music like Bing Crosby to this old girl's nostalgic ears. ~smile~ So, when I first heard some of the new songs on It's Christmas, they didn't scream Christmas to me. The new arrangements of old favorites fell a little more friendly on my ears. 

In an effort to be diplomatic and a little less Grinchy, I've been listening to it over and over. It's growing on me. Christmas Time Again is actually kind of catchy. Newborn is performed in a modern worship style. I think I'm going to cling a little longer to Christmas past and enjoy the old classics with their updated arrangements. Just Hear Those Sleigh Bells Ringing... ' cause I'll be Home for Christmas!
Press Release: ​Mercy Me It’s Christmas​ CD will be available in Pizza Ranch locations through December 31, 2015.  It has 4 exclusive songs that can only be found on the CD version being sold by Pizza Ranch.  Each CD will be sold for $5 plus tax.  Pizza Ranch will give away the CD with a $25 gift card purchase as well as sell the full album at each of its 200 locations throughout the Midwest and Great Plains states.  "We are so excited to debut our new Christmas album, MercyMe, It’s Christmas, with Pizza Ranch” said Bart Millard with MercyMe. “Pizza Ranch is a fantastic restaurant with a great mission to glorify God.

  1. My favorite Christmas music is the old classics. My parents had a collector set of records, and we would listen to song after song

  2. We listened to the old 8 tracks that would just play and play and play. Loved it!

  3. Oh, this looks good! I love Mercy Me!

    I was "parked" by you on Tuesday Talk.

    Hope you have a blessed day~

  4. i love all Christmas music but with two young boys we have been listening to classic songs

  5. I really enjoy country Christmas music! Thank you for doing this!

  6. I am a Christmas music freak, so I will have to say ALL of it lol. I do love Bing Crosby though and Dean Martin.

  7. I enjoy listening to Older Christmas songs and learning how they were written to the Modern songs of Today . The older ones took some creativity . Like the ones written by Burl Ives who was Jewish . It was interesting how he wrote the songs . I like White Christmas and also the Blue Christmas one. THen the funny songs like Grandma got run over by a reindeer or the other funny ones like I saw mommy Kissing Santa Clause .

  8. We love John Denver and the Muppets. It is one from my childhood and now I listen with my kids.

  9. Listening to Christmas music right now Laura. Love it!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
