Joey+Rory, the hushband and wife duo that first came into living rooms via CMT’s hit series Can You Duet, has coupled with the Song Trust to release a Christmas CD called Merry Kidsmas.
The album, all sung by children, embodies what Christmas is all about.
The voices of the children are not those of highly-coached, up-and coming superstars, they are real children singing real music about what Christmas means.
The album is a bunch of fun-loving songs one would expect to hear from the mouths of kids.
A song from a sister wishing for rocks for her brother, siblings trying to catch Santa in the action and a tune when the rocks are delivered under the tree are mixed with classics like “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth” and “The Little Drummer Boy.”
Along with all the holiday cheer is “Bring him home, Santa.” It is a song from a little girl asking for her dad to be brought home from Iraq for Christmas that would make Scrooge tear up.
This is a must have album for Christmas this year and for years to come. – Mark Gregory
