fREsh cUTs: Christmas music never gets old.
There are so many great classics out there. We
just try to come up with our favorites then arm
wrestle to see who wins out! –Denise Jones
Pog UnPLUggED: Our past Christmas albums were very orchestral with lots of stacked vocals. This record has a more
down home, raw and authentic feel. We recorded “old school”—our vocals and the band at the same time. It was
musical candy to our ears. We could feel the emotion of the instruments around us. It brings an energy that isn’t there
when you are singing with a track. -D.J.
sUMMER hoLIDAy: [We recorded] in May and July. We were in shorts and T-shirts singing “White Christmas” and “Let
it Snow.” We did a lot of prep work on our vocal arrangements outside at Shelley’s pool in our swimsuits. How funny is
that? – D.J.
sTUDIo sPIRIT: We LOVE Christmas, so it isn’t hard to get in the mood. We decorated the studio with trees and lights
and brought in some Christmas cookies! – D.J.
sLowPokE shELLEy: We all have different gifts that we contribute to the group. Leigh and I grew up singing with
sisters, so harmonies come fairly easy to us. For Shelley, it’s not quite as natural. [Laughs] Most of the time she just
says, “Ya’ll tell me what to sing and I’ll learn it.” -D.J.
