About

Gil McKinney Christmas Album!

$22,621

223

As we are all here in August trying not to move because it's so HOT we don't want to sweat any more than we already are, let's cool down with thoughts of Christmas! With your help, I'm gonna make a Christmas record and have it ready for you to play THIS YEAR during the holidays. 

I've always loved a good Christmas carol, and I asked Jason Manns to produce this record since we had such a blast on my debut album (which you guys made possible, thank you so much!) 

The plan is to record in Sept/Oct and have it ready to ship by late Nov. If all goes well, you'll have digital downloads by Dec. 1st to help get you in the Christmas spirit while you wait for all the kickstarter goodies to arrive (hopefully before Christmas!)

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge will be getting this thing done and out the door in time to enjoy it for the Christmas season! But WE CAN DO IT!
