Daily Spinn: Cat Lines Releases Christmas Song for Those Away From Home
This holiday season presents unique challenges for those living far from home. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many are opting to play it safe by canceling their travel plans.
Cat Lines addresses this reality on “It’ll Still Be a Merry Christmas,” her new holiday single that just released today. The Texas native, who now resides in New York’s Hudson Valley, captured the moment on a sentimental ballad which features choral harmonies her always-noteworthy fiddle work.
“I realized there was the very real possibility that, due to the risks and restrictions associated with COVID-19, I would not be able to travel home to Texas for the holidays, making this almost a full year since I’ve visited my family,” Lines explained. “As an exercise, I began writing down a list of all the things I love about the holidays, and the song sort of grew out of that — out of a desire to still make this year something special. It touches on a feeling that I think a lot of people are experiencing right now, and tries to spin it in the most positive light.”
