Pulling from her extensive vault of unreleased original music, Buller explains how the second track on The Christmas 45, Vol. 2 came to life. “The Grammy award-winning Fairfield Four and I recorded ‘Mary Rocked Her Baby’ all the way back on Thanksgiving weekend 2016!! I’m especially excited to release this song this year because is is The Four’s 100th anniversary as a band. (These gentlemen are obviously the third generation of the group.) This one was co-written with the incomparable Lisa Aschmann from right here in Nashville.”
Buller will be doing a special livestream event on The Acoustic Shoppe Annual Small Business Saturday Sale! at 1pm CST on Saturday, November 27th to commemorate the release. Fans can tune into the livestream HERE. Aiming to promote the small businesses in her community, Buller will also be highlighting some of the businesses her band is partnered with on November 27th (Small Business Saturday) and announcing several giveaways on her socials throughout the day.
The release of The Christmas 45, Vol. 2 is the first taste of original music from Buller since her chart-topping Distance and Time record in 2020. “My prayer for all of us is that we spread the light of hope, joy, peace and love wherever we go this holiday season,” said Buller. Currently in the studio recording for a new project, Buller hopes to release a new record in 2022.
