Joey+Rory, Charlie Daniels Already Hearing Jingle Bells

It’s only August, but Joey + Rory, and Charlie Daniels are already in the holiday spirit.

Joey+Rory are prepping the Oct. 11 release of A Farmhouse Christmas, featuring 10 new holiday songs, as well as the standards “Away In A Manger” and “Blue Christmas.”

The Vanguard/Sugar Hill Records album also contains the Garth Brooks/Kent Blazy-penned “I Know What Santa’s Getting for Christmas,” the irreverent “What the Hell, It’s the Holidays,” and Rory’s beautiful original album opener “It’s Christmas Time.”

Christmas at the beach sounds appealing on “Let It Snow (Somewhere Else),” and fittingly Joey+Rory wrote it with James Slater and Tim Johnson at the Key West Songwriters Festival. The husband-wife duo also cut Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December” and recruited the Hag for guest vocals.

A Farmhouse Christmas was produced by Gary Paczosa and Carl Jackson, and an accompanying tour is in the works.

Charlie Daniels has tapped Phil Vasser and Sawyer Brown to join him at his 10th annual Christmas 4 Kids benefit concert. The show is set for Monday, Nov. 21 at the Ryman Auditorium.

The funds generated by the concert, and a separate Tour Bus Show/Artist Meet and Greet event, are used to give over 400 children a special holiday shopping excursion. On the trip, the kids enjoy a tour bus ride, a Walmart shopping spree, new coat, and a party hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Tickets for the concert will be available Sept. 15 at
