Fans of Doug Anderson know that his favorite pastimes are making beautiful harmonies and hanging out on the back porch with family and friends. As a matter of fact, this is a weekly occurrence at the Anderson home in Lapel, Indiana. Many times, neighbors are encouraged to bring their families (as well as their musical instruments) and before long, a neighborhood concert breaks out. This inspiration from this local phenomenon can be heard in every heartfelt note of "Back Porch Christmas."
When plans for a recording of Christmas music were being made, Doug immediately knew he wanted to create an atmosphere of celebration and community. So, he invited some of his friends (and favorite singers) to come join the party. Country powerhouse band 4th & Main joins Doug for this once-in-a-lifetime recording by providing the backing vocals for this homespun effort.
"Back Porch Christmas" brings out every emotion tied to this holiest of holidays, from the tender "Peace On Earth" to the classic "I'll Be Home For Christmas," the fun-filled title cut, "Back Porch Christmas," and the new Gaither composition, "The Manger And The Cross." So grab a guitar, call some friends and sing along with Doug and the guys of 4th & Main. Let's have a "Back Porch Christmas."
