Matt Still Appears On Fox & Friends On Christmas Eve. Matt Stillwell will be appearing live on Fox & Friends to premiere his Christmas single, “Our Christmas,” from the new holiday album Muddy Christmas. The performance will air on the FOX News Channel on Monday, December 24. Stillwell will sing a second song for online viewers of Fox & Friends “After The Show Show” segment, but has not yet revealed which holiday classic he will perform. He is leaving that song choice up to his fans. Stillwell tweeted and asked followers what their favorite Christmas song was. “I have a few of my favorites I’d like to sing, but I thought it would be fun to find out what my fans would like to hear on Christmas Eve. I have to say, my fans do have good taste. I have not decided yet, so guess everyone will have to tune in and see!” Stillwell recently signed with new management, Rusted Truck Ranch, and has lots to look forward to in the New Year with album plans in the works.

Here Is The Official Music Video For SaraBeth’s “Under The Mistletoe.” SaraBeth recently released the music video for her original Christmas song, “Under The Mistletoe.” The video was directed by Israel Anthem and produced by Noah Johnston. It was filmed in Nashville’s infamous “everyday is Christmas” themed Santa’s Pub—the doublewide trailer karaoke bar located near the city’s fairgrounds. “I felt like we were inside a snow globe while taping at Santa’s Pub,” says SaraBeth. “We had so much fun taping that day and meeting ‘Santa’ gave me an edge on all the other country artists. I was able to sneak in some of my Christmas-list wishes early!” Until tomorrow, fans can log on to Roughstock.com to enter to win a “Holiday Skype Hang with SaraBeth.” While in the studio with producer Dean Sams completing her full-length debut album, due out in stores later in 2013, one winner will win a skype interview with SaraBeth, plus a one hundred dollar Visa gift card. Runner-ups will win an autographed copy of her debut EP, Kickin’ and Screamin’ released earlier this year. To enter visit www.roughstock.com–contest ends on December 13, 2012. Watch “Under The Mistletoe” below and tell us what you think. It is hard for me to be a fan of any Christmas songs that aren’t the classics, but you could feel different. So don’t be shy, speak up! =)
The Official Music Video For Phil Vassar’s “Santa’s Gone Hollywood.” This Christmas original comes from Phil Vassar’s Christmas album, Noel. “Santa’s Gone Hollywood” describes a much different Santa, that most aren’t familiar with. He is in a band, has a reality show, takes blue pills and smokes the natural stuff. This is not what I’d call traditional, but Vassar does have some of those tunes on Noel. I’m not really a fan of this song, but I will say it gets stuck in your head easily. We want to know what you think of this song and video. So watch and comment below.

Listen to Easton Corbin’s Country Christmas Song, “O Holy Night”. Easton Corbin just released his version of the classic Christmas song, “O Holy Night“, and it is pure country awesomeness. Whenever I hear this song I automatically think back to all the Christmases I’ve had growing up, and it is easily one of my favorites (though, I don’t know if there’s one I don’t like…maybe the one where grandma gets run over?). Easton has such a great voice, and his version of this classic is really wonderful! Watch the video below, and enjoy! Video: Easton Corbin Sings “O Holy Night”.
