Lori McKenna — “Christmas Is Right Here”
Label: Thirty Tigers
Produced by Lori McKenna, Luke Laird & Barry Dean, Christmas Is Right Here is a six song EP that does exactly what a new addition to your home’s treasured Christmas music collection should. It reminds, it celebrates, it contemplates, and it inspires. For McKenna, Christmas is an ever-changing kaleidoscope of emotions, and her uncanny ability to pinpoint them and give them life in song is a gift for us all.
Lori McKenna is one of the best songwriters working in any genre. With this release, this winner of three Grammy Awards for Best Country Song, shares her observations of multiple holiday mindsets in some of the most enjoyable songs you’ll encounter. Her voice is honest, warm, and ready to reach brave new conclusions when considering a specific holiday situation or two that are well worth exploring. This is a recording for those who honor Christmas as a time to dig deep, unafraid to feel whatever feelings might arise. It’s a beautiful gathering of songs that will warm your heart.
Bonus: there’s an absolutely enchanting rendition of the Paul McCartney classic “Wonderful Christmastime.”
