Ram Cat Records is excited to digitally release the brand new Christmas EP, Carolina Christmas, for the team at Wilson Pickins Promotions, featuring many of the agency’s very talented singers and musicians on the 4 song collection.
When Melanie Wilson set out in search of songs for the project, she found herself on the phone with Rick Lang, one of Christmas music’s best friends. Rick forwarded many songs to Melanie and her husband Steve, who was set to produce and engineer the project, and they were able to choose all four songs. Lang co-wrote the original group of songs with other notable writers from the roots genre, Tim Stafford, Daryl Mosley, and Troy Engle.
After listening to the songs, the Wilsons indicated that the voices from the team roster simply came to them. It wasn’t about choosing “who” should sing the song, but actually the songs “chose” the vocalists. Steve put the band together and it all went into production over the summer.
I have wanted to create a Christmas project with the team for many years and this year it just seemed so very important to put as much joy back into the world as possible. I just couldn’t wait any longer. It’s my hope to be able to do this every year as long as I have folks wanting to join in the fun. These songs are truly spectacular and all the writers should be so proud of what they created. I hope they love our interpretation of each story – Melanie
