Don’t let anyone stop you from turning up your favourite holiday classics and letting those jingle bells ring. In the spirit of holiday giving, Top Country has the exclusive premiere of Twin Kennedy’s Christmas album, A Twin Kennedy Christmas! The country duo’s new album will be available on November 10th but you can listen here first and check out their Top 10 Stocking Stuffers below! Christmas music + Twin Kennedy’s incredible vocals…what more could you want?! Mixing both Twin Kennedy originals and holiday classics, A Twin Kennedy Christmas is sure to be a Christmas staple for years to come. Co-written by some of the finest Canadian and Nashville talent, and accompanied by Music City’s best musicians (including the rhythm section of Grammy award-winning group The Time Jumpers,) Twin Kennedy’s americana sound is brought to its purest form with tracks like ‘I’m a Child Again’ and their lead single ‘Cold Weather’. With twelve BCCMA Award nominations and two Vancouver Island Music Award wins (Country Album of the Year and Song of the Year) to their names, Carli and Julie Kennedy have been a highly recognized duo throughout the West Coast. Their previous single ‘Secondhand Gold’ was the Grand Prize Award winner in the Country category of the 2015 John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the 2016 Lennon Award winner for Best Country Song. Twin Kennedy share their Top 10 Stocking Stuffers…because it’s never to early to start your Christmas shopping! 1. Games We love playing board games over the holidays! Our Kennedy family favourite is Charades, and you can find stocking stuffer versions of this game that serve as the perfect Christmas afternoon activity. 2. Christmas CDs May we suggest our new Christmas album? – A Twin Kennedy Christmas! A collection of Christmas classics and new original holiday tunes… plus, it fits perfectly in your stocking! (hint hint) ;) 3. Headphones We think you can never have enough pairs! We keep headphones in our purses, carry-on luggage and gym bags so that we can always listen to music when we’re on the go. 4. Twin K Merch We have some fun stocking stuffer-sized Twin Kennedy merchandise, with one of our favourites being our 3-piece Christmas magnets. We always love to display Christmas cards on our fridge, so we thought Christmas magnets would be a fun way to help with that over the holidays! 5. Scarves Our friends at Beck and Boosh, a female-run Canadian company, have the cutest winter scarves! They’re perfect for the #ColdWeather. 6. Magazines We love including Christmas editions of our favourite magazines in our family members’ stockings – Shape, Oprah Magazine and Canadian Living are some of our top picks. 7. David’s Tea Our friends at David’s Tea have so many amazing holiday blends, and they even come in cute stocking stuffer packaging! 8. A Good Book We are big fans of motivational, feel-good books – We recommend Brené Brown’s “Rising Strong”, Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project”, and Janice Kaplin’s “The Gratitude Diaries”. 9. Socks You know you’re officially an adult when you love getting new socks in your stocking! We especially like bright-coloured athletic socks! The more fluorescent, the faster they make you run! 10. Travel-Sized Lotions and Hand Sanitizer We spend so much of our life touring on the road, so we love having deliciously scented lotions with us at all times. Perfumed hand sanitizer is also so handy because it smells good and keeps you germ free… we are all about the two-for-one deals! #TwinJoke Can’t get enough holiday cheer?
