Wonderful to hear two of our favorite female vocalists on a new Christmas song!
Today Rural Rhythm Christian Records announced the new Christmas song, “Little Did They Know,” written by acclaimed songwriter, Rick Lang. Arranged and produced by Stephen Mougin, “Little Did They Know” features the elegant vocals of Jana Mougin (lead vocalist from the popular Euro band Fragment) with Melonie Cannon and Stephen Mougin providing harmony vocals. They are joined by a great cast of musicians including: Randy Kohrs (Resonator Guitar); Stephen Mougin (Acoustic Guitars); Todd Parks (Bass); and Chris Brown(Drums).
“Writing Christmas and Seasonal material has been a passion of mine for a very long time. It goes back to the influences and experiences I had as a child at Christmas in our New Hampshire home. There have been many great songs written about the birth of Jesus that we all long to hear at this time of the year. That being said, there still needs to be new songs written and recorded that hopefully will appeal to future generations as well. I want to be one of the writers that helps keeps the Nativity Story alive…. in people’s minds…and hearts,” explained Rick Lang.
This beautiful tune will certainly appeal to any radio program that plays Christmas music during this holiday season. Radio programmers can download the song free at Airplay Direct.com
