Moundsville, WV (November 10, 2023) – Copper Mountain Records is proud to announce a new single, “Christmastime,” just in time for the holiday season. The song is available to radio programmers today at AirPlay Direct or by request. The digital release is set for November 24, 2023.
Last week, Crandall Creek’s bandleader and guitarist, Jerry Andrews, sat down with his guitar and wrote “Christmastime” in under half an hour. “I thought about how simple things were in the late ’50s & ’60s growing up in rural West Virginia and remembering things like sled riding, bonfires, and celebrating the birth of the Baby Jesus. Christmastime was and is still important to my family. I hope everyone enjoys this tune as much as I had writing it and remembering old times and Christmas get-togethers.” Musicians on the track include Carly Greer on lead vocal, Kathy Wigman Lesnock on harmony vocal, Dustin Terpenning on banjo and mandolin, Sav Nelson on bass, and Jerry Andrews and Roger Hoard on guitar.
Crandall Creek has accomplished much this year with their successful shows and continuing radio chart success. Their current single and accompanying music video, “Just 18,” also penned by Andrews, debuted today at #16 on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 Weekly song chart. Musicians on the track include Carly Greer on lead vocal, Jerry Andrews on guitar, Kathy Wigman Lesnock on harmony vocal, and Dustin Terpenning on banjo. The song was produced by Jamie Peck and includes guest Darrin Vincent on bass and Andy Leftwich on mandolin. The “Just 18” music video quickly took off on Facebook, gaining over 356k views so far. It was filmed by Bruce Winges at the home of Kathy Wigman Lesnock and her husband, Doug Lesnock, in West Finley, Pennsylvania, and produced by Hope River Entertainment.
Crandall Creek’s other 2023 chart single, “Love the Thrill,” was penned by the band members. This fun and upbeat tune was #15 on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 monthly chart for October 2023, made numerous appearances on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 weekly chart, and continues to gain airplay. “Just 18” and “Love the Thrill” will appear on Crandall Creek’s upcoming album releasing early next year.
