After 50 years, Loretta Lynn celebrates the holiday season with the new album “White Christmas Blue”. Her first collection of seasonal songs since 1966’s Country Christmas features 12 new studio recordings made at Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
Highlights include ‘White Christmas Blue,’ a future yuletide classic newly penned by Loretta Lynn and Grammy Award winner Shawn Camp; new versions of two original compositions ‘Country Christmas’ and ‘To Heck With Ole Santa Claus’ which first appeared on Country Christmas; and soulful interpretations of traditional carols ‘Away in a Manger’ and ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ along with pop standards ‘Winter Wonderland’ and ‘White Christmas’…
“White Christmas Blue” is the celebratory successor to Loretta’s first Legacy release, “Full Circle”, her 40th Top 10 country album and her highest-charting album ever on the Billboard 200. At the time of Full Circle’s release, in March 2016, it had been more than a decade since Loretta Lynn had recorded or released any new studio music.
An emotional and personal journey through Christmases past, present and future, “White Christmas Blue” is an essential addition to any Loretta Lynn library or holiday album collection.
Like “Full Circle”, “White Christmas Blue” pays homage to Loretta’s deepest musical roots and influences and was recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash.
