"Troubadour 364" is one of the best new Christmas songs of the year.
Don Pedigo is a Nashville based singer-songwriter with a whole lotta cred in his resume. Giggin' with Sammy Kershaw. Finalist in CMT's "Music City Madness Singer/Songwriters Competition". Last album "The Cross Eyed Sessions" was in the Roots Rock Top 40 for over 2 years. Playing the Nashville scene with The Coyotes. And now, with "Troubadour 364" Don has graced us with an outstanding original Christmas song, backed with his take on the standard "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".
Don's voice has an edgy comfort quality to it, with a dash of soulful added in. There's a bit of 'the road' in it, which lends to the theme and message of 'Troubadour 364". The arrangement is excellent, with sax accompaniment that really brings the song to life.
But it's the lyrics that are fantastic. The theme of the song has been done before, but not like Don Pedigo. I'm thinking - annual Christmas comp, and maybe even a spot in my annual guest DJ hour.
And, I'm not going to spoil it for anyone. This is a song best heard fresh. So, watch the video and have a listen, and then follow the links below to add it to your Christmas music collection. I certainly am.
