Sierra Ferrell Covers Brenda Lee and Bobby Helms


Just as we discover Nashville's Sierra Ferrell (and become completely obsessed with her music), she releases two new Christmas songs. Ferrell has covered two of the most iconic and beloved Christmas songs of the rock 'n' roll era: Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock." Ferrell's versions are completely perfect. They may lean more heavily towards country than the originals, but they have such a perfect vintage 50's feel to them, they sound like they could be from that time period, with just enough of a modern vibe to make them feel current. These are going to end up being must haves for every Christmas playlist you put together for years to come.

You can listen to Sierra Ferrell's take on "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" below. The Christmas double single is available now via Bandcamp. For more on Sierra Ferrell, check out the artist's website.
