AN NRT EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW, Make a Christian Band a Christmas Band!

In the summertime, we often encounter Instagram posts and tweets from Christian artists announcing to the world they're making a Christmas album. Way to go, artists... thanks for A) Putting a cold shiver over our bodies as we try to enjoy a day at the lake, and B) Immediately casting doubt on the sincerity of your record since we now know it was created in the Summer

OK, we'll give you a pass for that. But then, before we've even picked out our Halloween/Harvest costume, we here at NRT have to start promoting Christmas releases. First Thanksgiving... now the Christmas mammoth has smashed its hefty tusks into autumn? 

But when December finally comes, we're ready. We are excited for the inevitable crop of cover songs made with artists' distinct style. We're even more ready for heartfelt originals that punctuate new Christmas projects with focused poetic flair. 

Now, being halfway through December and just over a week away from Christmas, it's time to harvest the last little bit of jolly from these artists, as we--that's NRT Executive Editor Marcus Hathcock and Founder Kevin McNeese, along with our NRT Now audience--transform top artists' names into more holiday-appropriate monikers, as we #MakeAChristianBandAChristmasBand. For example, the header of this article: Andy Mistletoe! 

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
