12 Days of Christmas Giveaway: The Glitch Who Stole Christmas
The 9513′s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway
Wondering where the seventh and eighth days of Christmas went? Evidently, they evaporated into a virtual vapor, gone to that place where lost data rests in peace. If you came here over the weekend looking for the contest, and found nothing, it was due to a small scheduling glitch on our backend. The good news, however, is that all of the weekend’s prizes have been rolled together–so today’s prize pack will be even bigger and better than it was supposed to be.
We’re only four days away from the grand prize drawing–which means you have three more chances to get registered. What’s the grand prize? If you’ve been following the contest over the past week, then you already know that the grand prize contains more than 12 items (at least two of which are signed by the artists), at least two awesome country music-related DVDs, a box set, at least one prize that is “deluxe,” and (today’s spoiler), something that sounds so good.
But that’s four days from now, and we’ve got a heck of a prize pack for you today.
In addition to the Friday’s prize of Joe Nichols’ A Traditional Christmas and Julianne Hough’s self-titled debut album, today we’re adding three more CDs to the haul.
The first of those is Faith Hill’s brand new holiday collection Joy to the World, which features ten holiday standards and the closing original track “A Baby Changes Everything.”
“The album features substantial vocal assistance from Metro Voices and The London Oratory School Boys Choir, along with the Nashville Orchestra who help to create the big band sound of the 40s and 50s. While these arrangements are not necessarily unique, they take the listener to the comfortable place of warm fires, old Christmas movies and festivities that are positively associated with the Christmas season.” — Leeann Ward, Country Universe
Next up is an album widely praised as one of the year’s best, Hayes Carll’s Trouble in Mind, which features the single “She Left Me For Jesus.”
“Hayes Carll has shown that he’s willing to approach the arena where American songwriting legends are made, and more than that, he’s indicated that he may be capable of competing once he’s arrived [... Trouble in Mind is] an excellent record that has made me a Hayes Carll fan, and in a just world, would establish him as a force to be reckoned with on the national scene.” — Ben Cisneros, The 9513
“For fans of John Prine or Todd Snider, 32-year-old Texan Hayes Carll is a familiar type—a mush-mouthed drawler who’s smarter about the beat than his shambling ways would make you think and funnier than shit when he wants to be, which is often.” — Robert Christgau, Blender
Finally, today’s winner all also receive and autographed copy of Eli Young Band’s Jet Black and Jealous, featuring the hit singles “When It Rains” and “Always The Love Songs.”
To enter today’s giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment to this article answering the following question:
Do you know a Grinch or a Scrooge who has trouble getting into the holiday spirit? If not, (lucky you!) which of your friends or loved ones would you say is most festive?
Entries must be posted no later than 11:00 AM CST, December 23th. Good luck, and merry Christmas from The 9513.
