McCready’s version of “The Christmas Song” keeps the integrity of the original tune while also featuring elegant, piano-focused production. Additionally, the track highlights McCready’s signature ethereal yet powerful vocals and ability to convey emotions in her music.
McCready’s family memories inspired her to record the song. She explained, “‘The Christmas Song’ is one of my favorite holiday songs so I decided to release my own version of it this year. This song brings me joy whenever I hear it because I am instantly reminded of holiday moments with my loved ones over the years. My family loves to spend Christmas singing our favorite classic Christmas songs. I hope my version brings you joy this holiday season as well!”
“The Christmas Song” comes on the heels of “Something Like That,” McCready’s previous single. “Something Like That,” will appear on McCready’s upcoming EP, to be released in early 2022.
Nashville-based country musician Alannah McCready was born near Minneapolis, MN, and has loved a diverse range of music since a very young age. She attended the University of Madison, WI, on a full athletic scholarship for women’s hockey. Her passion for music never left completely, yet her involvement with the college and pro sports worlds did not allow a great deal of time to pursue other interests.
Upon graduating, McCready took a job doing PR for a sports management company in New York and began writing music again. Her uncle, a recording artist in Los Angeles, gave her a connection to a music producer in Nashville, who urged her to come to visit and test out a few songs. To her delight, she was told by professionals that, yes, she should be pursuing a professional musical path. She packed up her bags and moved south and has been honing her craft ever since.
McCready is taking her can-do attitude and confidence learned from playing a primarily male-dominated sport to her music career. She takes her creativity seriously but with a healthy dose of fun and playfulness for her craft.
