Tom Wopat and John Schneider are teaming up again to record a very special Christmas album and they want YOU to get involved!

Whether you’ve discovered Tom and John’s music through their roles as on The Dukes of Hazzard or through their respective solo music or acting careers, it’s clear that you, the fans, are some of the most passionate, warm, and wonderful people in the world. That’s exactly why Tom and John want you to be a part of their latest project. For the first time EVER, the guys are recording an album together! It will be full of swing and country versions of classic Christmas tunes including I'll Be Home For Christmas, "Christmas Time Is Here," Cool Yule," Christmas Waltz," "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," and more. 

Instead of just creating and releasing the album in the traditional fashion, they wanted YOU to be a part of the process! So there are tons of opportunities for exclusive one-on-one experiences that have never been available before. It includes phone calls, trips around Manhattan, tickets to intimate performances, and much more!

How are your contributions helping to make the album? These guys only work with the best, and everything from recording studio fees to paying the amazing musicians to mixing and distributing the CDs costs a lot of money. All this is only going to be possible with your help! Many of you reading this are fans and friends that have been with the guys and followed their careers for many years. Now they are putting their faith in you and hoping that you will continue to stand beside them. Any dollar amount you pledge will be greatly appreciated and will go a long way toward making this album!!

Kickstarter operates as an ALL-OR-NOTHING platform. If the fundraising goal is not 100% met, your donation will not be collected and the guys don't receive any of the funds, not a penny. That's why it is vital that each and everyone of us shares this website and our fundraising goals with as many people as you can, whether by facebook, twitter, email, in person, telephone, carrier pigeon, or any other method of communication you use! Its also important to note, once we achieve our goal, we can keep going until the end of the pledge drive. The bigger the pot, the bigger the more we'll be able to do with marketing and production on the album!

So please - take a look to the right, and we hope that you'll find something over there that you are excited about. Tom and John will see you soon! 

NEW ITEM: Die-cast General Lee!

We have added a limited edition, numbered and autographed 1/18th size die-cast General Lee reward! It is at the $200 level - take a look to the right! Photos below (please note that there are 2 cars pictured, you will only receive one with the reward). 

A NOTE ABOUT THE CONCERTS: The $250 level offers ONE ticket. We have added a second level at $475 to receive TWO tickets with a slight discount. 

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Click on the green, "Back This Project" button and Kickstarter will walk you thru the entire pledge process. 
  • Your pledged amount will be automatically collected via Amazon when the fundraiser closes, but only if we reach our goal. If we fall short of the goal, all pledges are cancelled. 
  • All shipping costs for thank-you gifts are included, however we've added a slight bump for our international friends.
  • After we've met our fundraising goals, you can expect to receive an email that will ask for all your contact details so the thank you gifts can be delivered appropriately. 
  • Please note that each reward ONLY contains what is listed in the reward, it does not include everything listed above it. If you would like more than one reward, please send us a message to coordinate and receive instructions. 

Risks and challenges

We are aiming to release the album in October, but of course production or packaging issues could delay this. We will keep everyone very well updated with timeline and any issues.

For more "experiential" rewards, we appreciate your flexibility with scheduling, as Tom and John both have busy schedules.
