I received a press release today about the new single from country/pop artist, Abi. The song is called ‘Put a Bow On It”. And, if you haven’t already guessed, it is a holiday song. Abi is billed a ‘country/pop artist’, but after listening to this song, I would change that billing to a ‘pop/country’ artist. We did an article about Abi back in April, and at that point, I would have put the country in front of the pop, but in either case, she’s good. This song is good! I like it! I played it more than once. And, then, I started singing it. This song definitely crosses genre’ lines. But, even for die-hard country music fans like me – it is very, very likeable! I could almost picture it being sung in a Gordon MacRae/Shirley Jones scene in an old black and white movie from the early 50s. (When I mentioned MacRae and Jones, I’m guessing most of our younger readers are saying, “who”?) But, it’s that kind of happy, look at me, think about a holiday scene, kind of song. Here is the press release, a little more info about Abi, tour info, and the video.
[Press Release] Nashville-based country/pop artist ABI has released an original Christmas song, “Put A Bow On It,” streaming now on Just Jared Jr and Spotify. “‘Put A Bow On It” is my own little spin on the playful and celebratory holiday songs we all love,” Abi said in a recent interview with Just Jared Jr. “It’s definitely put me in the Christmas mood a few months in advance. Im so excited for you guys to feel the spirit!”
