Independent music label, Silverado Records, hopes to fill the homes of country music fans with the joyful music of their new project this holiday season, A Silverado Family Christmas, set to be released Friday, November 25th and available for preorder on iTunes Friday, November 18.
The seasonal album joins Silverado Record’s talented recording artists and singer-songwriters Joe Diffie, Melissa Mickelson, Zack Dyer with close friends of the label, including Crystal Yates, Mandy McMillan, Tony Winkler and Gabe Burdulis.
Produced and recorded at Simon Reid Music, with one track from Will Yates Music, the record boasts several great holiday classics, like Joe Diffie’s instantly memorable take on “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and Mandy McMillan’s inspired version of “Let It Snow,” in addition to special Christmas originals. Zack Dyer’s “Snow Day” is an upbeat reflection of days lost to inclement weather, and Crystal Yates “Christmas Time for Just You and Me” is a “smokin’ hot holiday love song.”
“We wanted to bring our Silverado family together and celebrate all the things we love about the holidays,” said Silverado Records Marketing Director Heather Cramsie. “This album is a great balance of originals, and Christmas classics. We’re excited to share this fun project with country music fans.”
