Country artists Allie Colleen and Jay Allen have joined forces to deliver a haunting and captivating rendition of the Christmas classic, “O Holy Night.” The eagerly awaited holiday track promises to be a highlight of this year’s holiday music offerings.

“Honestly, I’ve never really crossed my mind to put out a Christmas song before because I just wasn’t sure how well my sound would represent a Christmas song, but when Jay Allen was kind enough to ask me to record a Christmas song with the intent of showcasing our haunting side, I was very excited. I could not be more proud of how this project turned out, nonetheless how it represents our individual sounds.”

”Angels All Around’ is a song that is inspired by fans who reached out to me during covid, who were feeling lost and alone,” says TIFFANY. “I wrote this song to connect to them and to hopefully inspire them during the holiday season and beyond. I believe there are angels all around guiding us and looking over us, especially through the bad times and things we don’t understand.”

“‘This Ol’ Rodeo’ is a song I’m excited to have out,” says Chayce. “It’s inspired by a close friend of mine. This one’s for all the cowboys and cowgirls out there, literally and figuratively. This song is about taking on something that might be a little bit wilder than you, trying to hang on, and loving it through the wins and losses whether it loves you back or not.”
