The Silver Fleece: The Night Before Christmas (In Texas, That Is)
Since I spent every single Christmas in Texas as my relatives all lived in that state, I thought it would be nice to feature a semi-related regionally titled track from the compilation, “Hey, It’s Christmas!“, one of the better holiday songs I’ve heard in the last number of years.
The featured track comes from the Orlando Florida based country & western leaning band, THE SILVER FLEECE, who first came together in 2009. Vocalist Casey Powers really shines here and sent us immediately looking for any further information online about current efforts. This compilation was issued in late November of 2012 with a few more good ones from the preceding two years, all available at the ‘Xmas Comp’ link.
