What folks are saying.....
“From conception to production to execution, it’s hard to imagine a better bluegrass Christmas experience than what’s offered in Christmas The Mountain Way. Mark it essential.”
THE BLUEGRASS SPECIAL
“If you’re in the mood for some good, down-home bluegrass Christmas music, you should give this album a chance. I’ll keep it in the holiday shuffle on my CD player. Another plus — the album has introduced me to the breathtaking vocals of Brad Gulley. For that alone, I give thanks."
“Of particular note is the banjo playing of Jason Burleson and the fiddle playing of Brandon Godman. Dale Ann and Steve Gulley perform Christmas the Mountain Way that they wrote together and Brad Gulley gives an inspired performance of O Holy Night. Marty Raybon affirms his faith with his original song, A Way in the Manger."
CALIFORNIA BLUEGRASS ASSOCIATION
“A well done CD of Christmas music here that goes far above the average generic Christmas album. I recommend this to everybody this Christmas season.”
HUDSON VALLEY BLUEGRASS ASSOCIATION
“A very beautiful and reverent production.”
Jim’s Country Reviews
“Reaching out beyond the label roster to round out the talent line up, whether doing the holiday standards or some original material that blends nicely, this Appalachian throw back to simpler times (in feel) … invokes the kind of Americana we feel in the back of our minds. A real stand out of a holiday set, whether bluegrass/back porch fan or not, this is a must hear holiday set for everyone that’s not too hip for the room. Well done.”
MIDWEST RECORD RECAP
"Christmas The Mountain Way is delicious cup of hot chocolate, a cozy fireplace, and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree ... for the ears. A who's who of some of your favorite artists serve up a heaping helping of seasonal cheer. The sixteen song menu includes a tasty title track (Dale Ann Bradley & Steve Gulley), a yummy Jingle Bells (Mike Scott), a delicious There’s A Way In The Manger (Marty Raybon), an appetizing Joy To The World (Audie Blaylock), and a scrumptious Amazing Grace (Debbie Gulley). For desert, hit the repeat button and hear something new with each listening.”
Radio Bluegrass International and WKWC-FM
“Asking someone to pick their favorite song from this CD is like asking them to pick their favorite Christmas. They are all my favorite and will be yours to!”
Charles Hayes - WHKP Radio, Hendersonville NC

Al Shusterman – KCBL Radio
“Christmas the Mountain Way is a gift that will be used over and over again...and it'll never wear out. The message is timeless, the music priceless. And at WBTX we are going to air the soundtrack from the DVD for a complete program with valuable input. Thanks for an intimate Christmas moment with each artist. “
Jim Snavely - WBTX, Broadway, VA
“Christmas the Mountain Way” is an outstanding project, which will stay on radio playlists for many years.”
John Trout - WYEP, Pittsburgh, PA
“I grew up during the 60's. My fondest Christmas memories were made during that time. Christmas had a magical feel to it. There was always family, friends, and MUSIC!! And as I got older the REAL meaning of Christmas, made those childhood memories even GREATER!! Christmas The Mountain Way revives that old time Christmas feeling. It reminds us that JESUS is the reason for the season. And GOD inhabits the praise of his saints. Another note, when Jesus wanted to talk to the father face to face, He always went up to the mountains. I believe he wanted to get as close to GOD as he could get (THE MOUNTAIN WAY).”
