Christmas 2014 will be here before you know it !

 

Shane Speal and Dan Sleep have organized the Christmas album in previous years, Dan asked me if I would like to help co-ordinate it for this year! 

 

For any of the new folks here on the Nation, we have compiled an annual album of songs played, composed and sung by our members.

The primary requirement is that the recording be of good quality, for example, If you are singing, we want to be able to hear your voice! 

The 2009 Christmas album contained 23 songs, 2010 Christmas contained 40 songs, 2011 contained 18 songs. More songs is not necessarily better, we had

less in 2012 but all the submissions were amazing!, 2013 drew 39 amazing songs, we really don't have a limit on the number of songs we can include.

 There has been a tremendous response to CB Nation Christmas album submissions in previous years, let's top this year off with with a

CRACKER CHRISTMAS ALBUM! 

You can submit a cover of a traditional non copyrighted song, or ideally you can do something you wrote/composed yourself.

 Please respond in this thread if you would like to participate!

...and include the song that you would like to have included in the album. Once we have the final album compiled, it will be posted as a free download, and anyone will be able to download it. So, you will be able to pass the links along to your friends and family!

Members' names and songs will be published here on this header, 

completed MP3 files can be emailed to me at....
