Album: An Average Joe's Muddy Christmas
Artist(s): Various Artists
If you are looking for something different this holiday season to get you moving look no further than “Average Joe's” Muddy Christmas Album.
Average Joe's is a Atlanta Georgia and Nashville Based Indie label company who has definitely proven that they can step “outside the box” and produce a album that is unlike any other on the market.
This album feature's a variety of hip hop “Country” starting with Colt Ford's “Home for Christmas”
To an outstanding rendition of “Do you hear what I hear” by Josh Gracin, throw in former American Idol Bo Bice rocking it out to
“A Very Merry Christmas” and a splash of “Nappy Roots” performing “Nappy Christmas” and the finale, a quite humorous and catchy song that I would have to say was very well written and I could actually place myself into the song and envision sitting on the couch singing the lyrics to this song, “Beer with Santa.” “When I was just a little boy we had milk and cookies for two, Now that I am a grown up, I wanna have a beer with you” sung by the very talented The Mauldin Brothers.
Eclectic country might be the best description of this roster, it will have you up and bouncing from the very beginning, with so many talented artist's, I found this album to be highly energetic, charismatic, funny and the furthest thing from country music you will find.
If the saying that “different is good” and the same ol' same ol' is boring then I would say this album nailed it accurately.
