Edit 11/30: Thanks to all for making me hungry. The winners were Jethro and Rick, and they should expect emails shortly.
With Thanksgiving just a week away, you can now safely break out the Christmas music without appearing to be a lunatic. To help you kick the season off in style, Sugarland has charged us with the task of releasing two copies of their new Christmas record Gold and Green into the wild. And by the wild, I mean the elaborate mess of Christmas decor already beginning to consume your living room, porch, and front yard.
Gold and Green is about half Christmas standards and half originals, and it differs from Sugarland’s other recent work in that it’s more country-sounding and more of an equal partnership vocally, with Kristian Bush taking several leads. In summary, it’s quite Christmasy while still being very Sugarlandy.
As my old man used to say, if you eat that whole tin of flavored popcorn, I’ll belt you. But what I think he really meant was this: “you can never have too much Christmas music.”
To enter, comment with your favorite holiday snack. You have through Thanksgiving Day (11/26).
