Claire Lynch Holiday AlbumNashville, TN. -- The Claire Lynch Band is pleased to release their CD, “Holiday!”, to global radio exclusively via AirPlay Direct. Claire Lynch is high on the bluegrass world’s A-List, with accolades that include three International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Female Vocalist of the Year awards, two GRAMMY nominations and a recent win for IBMA Song of the Year for the title track from her CD, “Dear Sister”.

On "Holiday!" Lynch and her white-hot band offer up acoustic remakes of holiday classics and original tunes that are sure to become essential listening and a perfect seasonal gift for all fans of Americana music. From her home in Nashville, Lynch says, "When you slip this CD into the player, I know you're to feel like wrapping those presents and baking those goodies!”

The Claire Lynch Band – Matt Wingate, Bryan McDowell and Mark Schatz with Claire – have released a seasonal project that was recorded the way the holidays themselves should be enjoyed; in a relaxed environment and a spirit of fun, in Claire’s own home studio. In a collection that is at once jazzy, grassy, sweet and sassy, Holiday! has something for everyone with traditional favorites like “Home for the Holidays,” “We Three Kings,” and the Hanukkah song, “In The Window” … all spectacularly arranged with that unique Claire Lynch Band twist.

The band’s take on the holiday tunes are reminiscent of an age when crooners crooned, the music had some swing, and Grandma stayed safely out of the reindeer’s path. Scrooge himself would be brimming with cheer at the Claire Lynch holiday show.

Claire Lynch a lifetime member of Alabama Bluegrass Music Hall of fame, a Grammy nominee and multiple winner of the IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year Award. As a performer and recording artist, Claire Lynch has been at the forefront of women in Bluegrass. Her soulful songs have been recorded by Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea and others.

Dolly Parton credits Claire with "one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today," and longtime music critic and author, Robert K. Oermann says, “she sings like a hillbilly angel.” Her songs have been recorded by many artists and all of her albums, twelve to-date, feature Claire Lynch originals.

“This is the perfect record to help you jump-start and kick off your 2015 Holiday season."
