NASHVILLE, TENN. (November 17, 2023)
Distinguished Bluegrass/Americana duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge are set to captivate audiences this holiday season with the release of their highly-anticipated album, Hometown Holiday. Available on November 17th from Billy Blue Records, the album is a soul-stirring celebration of (and reflection on) the season, showcasing the duo’s exceptional musical mastery and harmonious vocal blend.
Hometown Holiday album features 13 exceptionally curated tunes each imbued with the duo’s signature style, from spirited tracks evoking the joy and fun of the season (“With Bells On,” “The Chipmunk Song,” and “Must Be Santa” to tender ballads celebrating the true meaning of Christmas like “Who Do You Think,” “Noel,” and “Light of the Stable.” The album includes non-traditional songs (“River” (Joni Mitchell) and “It Wasn’t His Child” (Skip Ewing)) which explore the challenges the season brings for some and the importance of family. Brooke Aldridge, four-time consecutive winner of International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) Female Vocalist of the Year prize, soars on “Breath of Heaven,” while Darin Aldridge’s distinctive tenor voice is featured on a wonderful bluegrass take on the Beach Boys classic, “Little Saint Nick.” Hometown Holiday promises to be a delightful addition to every holiday playlist.
The album features the duo’s vocal and instrumental prowess along with the considerable talents of Cody Kilby (guitar), Samantha Snyder (fiddle), Jacob Metz (dobro), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Tim Surrett (bass) and Mark Fain (bass).
Darin and Brooke share their excitement about the newly released album sharing, “Christmas is a time for coming together, and we hope our music brings joy, warmth, and happiness to homes around the world this holiday season. This album is a showcase of some of our favorite tunes of the season that we have loved throughout the years. These songs are sure to transport listeners back to the place where their heart yearns to be during this special time.”
