Monday Exposure: Ballard C Boyd

Christmas With U (mp3)
Christmas for Cowboys (mp3) via his website.

At this time of year a lot of us will be working up a few Christmas songs to entertain family and friends. Ballard C Boyd is no different. Each year he puts together a CD for family and friends and also puts it up on the net. I mention it because this year’s CD, Christmas With You, is bloody fantastic.

The standout tracks are Christmas for Cowboys (made famous by John Denver) and, an original song, Christmas With U. There’s also a secret track mashing-up Steve Harley’s The Joker and Weezer’s Undone (The Sweater Song).

You can download the whole thing here and the previous two years’ tracks here.

    They’re all great. Be sure to catch “Christmas Upside Down” from last year’s record, too!

    Yup, that’s definitely another good one.

    As a longtime fan of all things ukulele, I give this record 5 out of 5 ukuleles!

    If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it twelve times: this guy can man-handle a damn ukulele!

Got something to say?
