The Henningsens, ‘Carol of the Bells (Medley)’ [Exclusive Premiere]
The Henningsens are releasing a Christmas album, and they're sharing some early Yuletide cheer with Taste of Country readers.
The family trio will release 'Our Family Christmas' via Arista Nashville. The 10-song digital release features eight seasonal favorites, along with two originals. The group -- composed of siblings Clara and Aaron Henningsen and their father, Brian -- are sharing a special medley with ToC readers, featuring 'Carol of the Bells,' 'O Come All Ye Faithful' and 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing.'
The album kicks off with 'Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Baby Jesus,' written by Aaron Henningsen, Dave Brainard and Tim Jackson. The song was inspired by Aaron's son, Wesley. Jerrod Niemann joins in the holiday fun for another new track titled 'Christmas Kissin',' written by Aaron and featuring Clara and Jerrod trading vocals.
Other songs on the project include 'Holly Jolly Christmas,' 'O Holy Night,' 'White Christmas' and 'Silent Night.'
The Henningsens took a fresh approach to their first-ever holiday collection.
“We really wanted to make it very traditional in the songs and the melodies," says Brian Henningsen, "but a lot of our arrangements are new, modern, cool arrangements.”
'Our Family Christmas' is set for release on Nov. 17.
