The Essential Advent Calendar: December 14 – Tenacious Country Music Newcomer Annie Vander Gets into the Holiday Spirit with a Lighthearted Original Tune, ‘King Of Christmas’

Tenacious country music newcomer Annie Vander is behind door number 14, with her festive original tune, ‘King Of Christmas’. Annie shows her excitement for the holiday season with her shining vocals and infectious personality, which are evident throughout this delightful tune that’s guaranteed to put every listener in the holiday spirit.

‘King Of Christmas’ is available to stream and download on all digital streaming platforms including Spotify, and Apple Music, and it has also been officially released to mainstream country radio stations.

‘King Of Christmas’ stemmed from when Annie Vander was on a radio tour for her chart-topping hit, ‘Falling Into Nashville’

“I wrapped up the tour a couple months ago in Tennessee and decided to spend a few extra days in Nashville for the sole purpose of writing more music,” says Annie. “I met with my producer David Norris and we started talking about the craziest, most spirited Christmas lovers out there and we decided to turn it into a song. This song talks about that person, like the Griswold family, with so many lights, but they end up turning every Grinch face upside down with their antics.”

Annie brings the magic of Christmas to life with this lighthearted and upbeat tune. “I just want to spread a little more joy to everyone. Let’s hope this song could be a holiday keeper, every season!”

Her last release, ‘Falling Into Nashville’, received great traction at country radio, which secured her on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart. This was her first radio charting single. This release also charted in the Top 5 streaming and was also in the Top 18 Most Downloaded songs on PlayMPE
