Manchester based CMA Award winner Gary Quinn has teamed with Swedish country-pop singer Sophie Hanson to release a Christmas single.

The two country music singers and songwriters have teamed together on a poignant version of the Christmas classic O Holy Night.

Speaking about the track, Sophie Hanson explained, “This is the first time I’ve released a Christmas song and I’m really excited that I get to do so with Gary.  After a little discussion, ‘O Holy Night’ was an obvious choice as we found we both share a great love for the song.”

Meanwhile, Manchester based Northern Irish singer-songwriter Gary Quinn added, “I’ve always loved O Holy Night, it reminds me of family and how special it is to be with one another at Christmas time.  I’m delighted Sophie agreed to sing this with me, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

The track has been produced by Richard Alex and features strong vocals from both artists with Sophie’s stunning voice complimenting Gary’s country tone perfectly.  Meanwhile, the musical textures is completed with electric guitar and cello to deliver a traditional, but modern sound.

The track is released today on all leading platforms.
