Christmas Is All About You
Having established herself as a promising performer and songwriter in the country world, crafting tracks for the likes of Lauren Alaina and Jana Kramer, Mallary Hope turns her talents to the CCM world with her seasonal three-track offering Christmas Is All About You. Hope makes the most of those three songs, showcasing her warm vocal stylings alongside a powerful talent for songwriting.
The title track leads off the set with a toasty, accessible vibe that toes the lines between country and pop, while the artist sings of her love for the Christmas season and her goal to remember the deeper meaning behind the season. Taking a different turn, Hope’s other original, “Just A Baby (Mary’s Song)” takes the perspective of Mary in the manger and is simply beautiful in voice and lyric, stealing the show here and setting the tone for the final track: a cover of “Mary, Did You Know,” which is a great showcase for Hope’s vocal prowess.
Christmas Is All About You is a perfect stocking stuffer for the season, serving to introduce listeners to one of CCM’s voices on the rise.
