When I started writing music, I had 2 goals… 1) write one song that is at least half as good as any John Prine tune and 2) write a Christmas song that others would enjoy. With my friends on Soundcloud, we started collaborating once a year to write and record a new Christmas song. It is challenging because we are all recording thousands of miles apart, but I really look forward to it. It is a joy.
This year I jotted down some words that acknowledged Christmas is not always the happiest time in our lives. ( I’ll also include the previous two songs too.)
