Newcomer Bailey Bryan is taking the traditional song “Go Tell It on The Mountain” and putting her own fresh spin on the classic.
“Go Tell It On The Mountain’ is really special to me because it’s the first Christmas song I ever learned to play,” said Bailey. “When I lived in Washington, I would sit by the fire in our house and play that song at Christmastime after decorating the tree. It was a lot of fun to get to put my own spin on it.”
The song, which is considered a Christmas carol, is best known for it’s folksy traditional sounding representation. In this re-working, Bailey adds her own millennial touch of an uptempo and vibrant tone, combined with her delicate vocals.
Bailey joins a long list of other artists who have recorded the holiday song, including Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town, James Taylor, Jennifer Nettles, Sarah McLauchlan, Garth Brooks and Dolly Parton. She recorded the song exclusively for Amazon Original’s Acoustic Christmas playlist, which also features upcoming artists Noah Cyrus, Lori McKenna, Joy Williams and more.
Earlier this year, Bailey released her EP ...So Far—which features her debut single,”Own It”— and was recently named to the CMT’s 2018 class of Next Women of Country.
