Fans of Doug Anderson know his favourite pastimes are making harmony 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 Indiana. Many times neighbours are encouraged to bring their families (as well as their musical instruments) and before long, a neighbourhood concert breaks out. This local phenomenon launched a recording and even an national tour appropriately titled The Back Porch Sessions.
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 best friends (and favourite singers) to come join the party. New 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 manifests 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 to the new Gaither composition, The Manger and The Cross. So grab a guitar, call some friends and sing along with Doug and the guys.
