Christmas Like Christmas Used To Be
A brand-new Christmas CD of all-new original Christmas songs.
Very nostalgic in the spirit of the old Christmas classics. Beautiful
melodies with warm, thoughtful lyrics as well as some fun ones to put
you in a heartwarming holiday mood. Jim's eight year old daughter, Brighton,
makes her debut singing a new Christmas lullaby, "Happy Birthday
you like the songs of Jim Weatherly and the beautiful songs of Christmas,
this CD is a must for your collection.
Review by Joel Scarborough:
I have often said that Jim Weatherly can evoke more emotions in a three
minute song than many writers do in a 300 page novel. With enough hit
songs to his credit to fill many volumes, I get to thinking now and
then that Jim’s creative reserves must be running pretty low.
And that’s about the time he usually jolts me back to reality
with the release another collection of great new songs that recording
artists from every field will be dashing to cover. This time Jim has
channeled his warm and heartfelt lyrics into a Weatherly winter wonderland
of 14 original traditional-flavored holiday songs that just may be the
best new Christmas album in more than 25 years. This new Brizac Records
CD is chock full of Weatherly trademark love songs, like my personal
favorites: “Christmas With You” and “A Christmas Love
Song”. This bright new masterpiece also contains a full
array of styles from jovial rocker, “Give Me Some Lovin' For Christmas”,
and an upbeat spiritual “The Star At The Top Of The Tree”
to the softly inspirational “God’s Greatest Gift”. And,
as a special bonus cut, Jim has included his moving composition, “Happy
Birthday Jesus” sung by 8-year-old Brighton Weatherly. In fact,
the holidays are so special to the entire Weatherly family that
this CD evolved into a family project, with cover art, photography and
inspirational contributions by Edith, Cynthia, Brighton and Zack Weatherly.
So when your own family gathers this holiday season, introduce them
to “Christmas Like Christmas Used To Be” by Jim Weatherly
on Brizac Records and be among the first to sing along with what is
sure to be the next classic standard Christmas CD.
