Merry Christmas from Mountain Heart and Cindy Baucom

Merry Christmas from Mountain Heart and Cindy Baucom on Knee Deep In BluegrassCindy Baucom has put the finishing touches on her Knee-Deep In Bluegrass Christmas Special, offered free of charge – and commercial free – to any radio station looking to add some great acoustic holiday programming during the Christmas season. It will be available for broadcast between December 11-25, and can either be downloaded or delivered as an audio CD.

Cindy’s guest hosts for this year’s special are the guys from Mountain Heart – Clay Jones, Barry Abernathy, Jason Moore, Josh Shilling, Aaron Ramsey and Jim Van Cleve. They not only help Cindy announce the songs, they also provide their versions of a number of  Christmas favorites during the program (Mary Did You Know, The Christmas Song, Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem).

There will also be music from Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, John Cowan, David Grisman, Rhonda Vincent and many others, plus interviews with Ricky Skaggs, Del McCoury and Mike Scott.

Baucom explains the reasoning behind making this show available to all comers…

“My hope is that my regular radio affiliates on the network will enjoy the program, and that many other radio stations will take advantage of this free, no-obligation way of easing their work load over the holidays, scheduling some acoustic programming for their listeners!”

US stations interested in airing the 2 hour show should contact Premiere Radio Networks (818-377-5300), or get in touch with Cindy directly ( – 704-714-9548).
