GRAMMY-nominated artist Crowder releases Milk & Cookies: A Merry Crowder Christmas (via sixstepsrecords/Capitol CMG). This 14-track project is chock-full of festive originals, re-imagined classics and creative collaborations. The songs include a hilarious tribute to the North Pole's working class titled '"The Elf Song," a collaboration with Country Music Hall of Fame member Ricky Skaggs on a bluegrass-driven version of "Go Tell It on the Mountain," and "I've Heard About You," a tender tribute to the reason.
Crowder writes, "I am feeling as festive and antsy as a kid on Christmas eve. I couldn't wait and wanted you to be the first to know - Milk & Cookies: A Merry Crowder Christmas is out now! I hope this album brings you an abundance of joy and grateful remembrance this season!"
He continues, "This album is festive, joyful, hopeful, and fun. It's all about the best gift ever - the miracle of Christmas! It's a magical story that changes everything."
The project is made complete through Crowder's signature charm, which is spotlighted on multiple interludes scattered throughout. Playing the role of an objective narrator that has become a staple of classic holiday films, Crowder closes the record with a laugh-out-loud twist on the classic children's book "Goodnight Moon," wishing "goodnight" to everything that fills the holidays with joy and cheer - including the "elves with their 401ks" and his "leftovers" in the fridge.
Crowder will hit the road to headline the K-Love Christmas tour, which kicks off in November and continues through December. For more information on all things Crowder, please visit crowdermusic.com.
