Mike Farris + Shannon McNally – “Merry Christmas Baby”

Mike Farris who won an American Roots GRAMMY in 2014 and Shannon McNally, whose 2017 album BLACK IRISH, hit the Top 10 on the Americana charts, teamed up for a breezy take on “Merry Christmas Baby” for “Acoustic Christmas”, an Amazon Original holiday playlist which features an all-star lineup of artists including Joy Williams, Nicki Bluhm, Jim Lauderdale and Lori McKenna.

Though the collaboration was a first for both artists, they each seemed to enjoy the session that kicked off the holiday season.  Mike says, “Twas a special early Christmas gift singing one of my holiday favorites with Shannon!”, while Shannon adds, “Hands down the best Christmas song of them all and Mike’s sexy elf voice is like hot chocolate under the mistletoe”.

“Acoustic Christmas”, one of the most popular playlists in the Amazon Original series, offers an incredible range of artists covering holiday classics and contributing new original songs to help listeners get into the festive spirit.  All songs are available exclusively for streaming on Amazon Music through Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music.
