Christmas was produced by the award-winning Nick Bruno (Booth Brothers, Kingsmen) and industry leader Scott Godsey (Toney Brothers, Heirline). The album features many traditional favorites such as “Away In a Manger,” “Joy to the World,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” and “O Holy Night” in addition to newer favorites like “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,” “Come On Ring Those Bells,” and “Thank God For Kids.”
“I am just so honored to have had the year that I’ve had,” mentioned Jim Sheldon. “God has opened so many doors for me this year. Getting to end my year with a brand new Christmas album is definitely one of the highlights!”
Christmas was featured on the annual and popular Christmas Music Guide on the industry’s leading news site AbsolutelyGospel.com. The article had this to say about the recording:
“Jim Sheldon is a new name on the Gospel music landscape - but his debut Christmas recording has a lot of country based classic holiday songs to make any fan of Christmas music happy.
