Things are moving ever more in a holiday direction here at Bluegrass Today. We’ll all be celebrating Thanksgiving with our families this week, after which the official secular celebration of Christmas cranks into overdrive.
And what a treat this year that so many special Christmas releases are available for bluegrass lovers! If this keeps up, we may need a special chart each December to track the most popular new holiday songs of the year.
The latest entry for 2010 comes from Nu-Blu, who have just released Christmas In Dixie as a digital single. Here’s a taste…
