Born in Elkhorn City, Kentucky, country star Patty Loveless decided to bring her Appalachian roots to her music for her 2001 album, “Mountain Soul.” After numerous country music hits, that album showcased where Loveless came from and the musical styles so deep-rooted in the mountains.

Following up the critically acclaimed “Mountain Soul” cd, she stuck with her upbringing and recently released her first Christmas record, “Bluegrass & White Snow: A Mountain Christmas.” "I had been meaning to do this album for some time," says Loveless. "I wanted to continue doing the type of music I grew up with and do a Christmas album." Among the 13 cuts are Christmas favorites like "Silent Night", "Joy To the World" and "Little Drummer Boy", along with four other tunes, three of which were penned by Loveless and her producer/husband Emory Gordy, Jr.

A few hundred people waited in line at Tower Records in Nashville to meet Patty Loveless and get her autograph on her two latest releases. Some fans had to be turned away because of her evening performance at the Ryman Auditorium on the Grand Ole Opry. Her Opry audience received a treat when she performed the title song off her Christmas album. "I'm also going to do another song off the album," she told me, "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem. That song is in memory of Gene Wooten."

“Bluegrass & White Snow: A Mountain Christmas” features background vocals by such luminaries as Dolly Parton, Vince Gill and Amy Grant, Ricky Skaggs and Trisha Yearwood. And while we know the holidays are over, we believe that the warm melody of mountain music springs eternal. Patty Loveless’ latest album will take you on a tour of where she comes from and make you feel as though she brought you home with her for a warm and musical Appalachian Christmas you can enjoy all year round. / Issue 27 - September 3337
