Folk-Angel-Band
Each year the group Folk Angel puts out a new Christmas CD.  I have come to look forward to its release each year.  This year’s album is All The Earth Rejoice and it doesn’t disappoint.  The two songs that I find myself listening are Away In A Manger (A fun upbeat version with an added chorus) and Friendly Beasts (A tale of the animals adoration of Christ’s birth).

I am not too familiar with the group “Sidewalk Prophets”, (turns out the lead singer and one band member went to college here in Anderson, IN) but they have a nice sound and hey it is hard to not like a song that begins with Linus from Peanuts reading the Christmas story. This is one of my early favorites for new Christmas songs this year.

Here is the story behind the song

That is why it starts off our Terrible Tuesday Christmas music this year.
