Nashville, TN (December 20, 2010) - Retail giant Walmart has welcomed Phil Keaggy into their Christmas celebration this year, offering the Grammy-nominated Gospel Music Hall of Famer's critically acclaimed Welcome Inn: A Phil Keaggy Christmas CD as one of their featured selections this season.

"This is a very special recording to me, and I'm thrilled that Walmart is making it available to their customers!" says Keaggy.

With Welcome Inn, Keaggy has crafted a project that is at once both intimate and accessible, with brand-new songs that feel like Christmas standards. Keaggy-penned tunes include the beautiful "Village Bells," in which he reflects on his Ohio hometown childhood, and "Best Christmas Morn," which reveals the real meaning of Christmas as the birth of Christ instead of the presents under the tree. "All Through the Night" is Keaggy's take on an old Welsh Christmas tune, and the instrumental "Shades of Red & Green" interweaves snippets of Keaggy's favorite Christmas carols.

The album is a family affair, with Keaggy's son Ian and daughter Olivia featured on guest vocals. Produced & engineered by Keaggy himself and mastered by Grammy winner Richard Dodd (Dixie Chicks, George Harrison, Big & Rich), the entire project was recorded in Keaggy's studio.

"My hope is that those who listen to Welcome Inn will sense the joy of this and every Christmas," comments Keaggy.

One of the world's most beloved musicians, Phil Keaggy has enjoyed immense success over the course of his career. Having first entered the music scene as the co-founder and guitarist for '70s power group Glass Harp, Keaggy has since released close to 50 albums and has made appearances on countless others. Widely recognized for his phenomenal guitar playing as well as his vocal and songwriting prowess, he has received numerous accolades and awards for his music, including seven Dove Awards and a Grammy nomination. Keaggy was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2007, and was named one of the Top 10 best rock singers in Christian music history by GospelMusicChannel.com in 2009. He has been named one of the "25 Most Underrated Guitarists" by Rolling Stone Magazine alongside Prince, The Beatles' lead guitarist George Harrison, Kurt Cobain, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham. Keaggy continues to sell out concerts all over the U.S. with his ever-changing style, ranging from rock 'n' roll to fully orchestrated instrumental compositions.
