The Essential Advent Calendar: December 1 – Get In The Holiday Spirit With Kopper And Kash’s New Single, ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’

Family band Kopper and Kash bring in the holiday spirit with new single ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’.

On the rise Country artist duo Kopper and Kash, release their new Christmas cover of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”.  “This has been an upbeat Christmas song that our family has performed together for several years. It has been a crowd favorite so we wanted to gift this to our friends and fans. It has a way of transporting you right into the Christmas spirit.  It combines tradition with a fun up tempo style and a great way for us to highlight our harmonies. I hope you love it as much as we do!” – Kopper and Kash

The song  starts with   strong rhythm as the emphasized upbeats give the song a similar vibe to a waltz. The engaging piano melody changes slightly as Jeff’s velvety vocals begin “God rest ye merry gentlemen.” The lyrics ask listeners to remember that Christ was born on Christmas to save us. Jeff’s daughters, Ava and Mia, join in to harmonize with their father in the chorus as the music fills our hearts. They sing “Tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy.” The music goes back into the plucked piano notes as Jeff carries on to the next verse. About halfway through the song the instrumentals drop back as the girls’ angelic voices ring out. They harmonize perfectly as they sing out the merry lyrics. It is hard to listen to this tune and not be filled with joy as the family reminds us of what Christmas is truly about.

Kopper and Kash close out 2023 with resounding success and multiple releases this past year. We are excited to share their upcoming music in the New Year.
