“ “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem” is one of the first Christmas songs I ever remember singing with Mom,” Wynonna said in a statement. “We recorded it in 1987 for the ‘Christmas Time with The Judds’ album, and I still sing it to this day! Getting to re-record it with my husband & producer Cactus Moser, 35 years later, was so special to me. It’s rootsy & raw, as if we’re sitting around the fireplace singing together.”

Rising Nashville star MORGXN unveils a new song “Fading.” MORGXN’s much anticipated third studio album, BEACON, is set for release February 2.  Of “Fading,” MORGXN shares that the song is about “courting grief and knowing that sometimes something has to fall apart before you can move on to the next chapter. The song also asks the question ‘how do we know if the pain of a moment is worth it?’ and I’m not sure I know how to answer that, but I do know the song exists in the hope of that moment.”
