It has proven to be a career-defining year in 2022 for two-time “Songwriter of the Year” Daryl Mosley. He’s carrying on that momentum by getting into the holiday spirit with the release of his brand new original holiday song, “An Old Fashioned Christmas,” on Pinecastle Records. The track is available now for download and/or streaming on digital retailers HERE. Radio programmers can download now from Airplay Direct.
“One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the nostalgic aspect of it all. Many of us look forward every year to hearing those classic songs, exchanging gifts, and honoring family traditions,” says Daryl. “This song is a celebration of all of those things. We tried to capture those warm and fuzzy, Norman Rockwell kind of emotions that Christmas brings about.”
“An Old Fashioned Christmas” is co-written by Mosley and long-time collaborator Rick Lang. It features the Waverly, Tennessee native’s heartfelt voice and lyrics that deliver a nostalgic message. Sister Sadie songstress Jaelee Roberts adds her stellar harmony vocals and Grascals’ co-founder Danny Roberts shares producer credits with Mosley.
Whatever happened to an old fashioned Christmas
Like the ones that we had in my childhood days
Snowflakes a-dancing outside of the window
And stocking hung hopeful on the warm fireplace
Bing Crosby crooning and dreaming in white
Carolers gather to sing ‘Silent Night’
A Lionel train runs around the big tree
While I’m writing a letter to Santa from me
An Old Fashioned Christmas with family close by
As sweet as the cider and Mom’s pumpkin pie
A little lower in volume and slower in speed
An old fashioned Christmas is just what we need (D. Mosley /R. Lang)
