THAT'S RIGHT - ONE WEEK - NEXT SUNDAY IS CHRISTMAS - NEXT TIME THIS HAPPENS? 2033 - SO ENJOY TODAY AS YOU PONDER WHAT'S COMING
Today, I want to feature an artist that has never been on The Christmas Countdown. This Arkansas native has been around as a singer, guitarist, and harmonica player since 2012. He is also a multiple Grammy and Dove Award winner. A classic example of the new breath being breathed into Contemporary Christian Music.
When you first hear Zach Williams, one word comes to mind - Authentic! His voice, his writing and his music bring out a new sound of soul and gospel that is rare in this day of over produced same old same old!
First up today - Zach Williams gives us his version of a classic - Composed in 1865 by John Wesley Work, Jr. - NO. 8 ON THE 2022 CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN - GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN. Turn it up -This baby rocks!
Next up - Composed in 1818 - Silent Night is one of the oldest and greatest Christmas songs ever written. Williamses performance of this classic carol oozes gospel, soul, and blues with every phrase.
And last on today's post - One of the most profound songs ever written by Zach Williams and Casey Beathard with a powerful video. - THERE WAS JESUS - An amazing duet with Legendary Country Artist Dolly Pardon.
Merry Christmas to all everywhere.
