23 October 2020 - Nashville, TN - It's time to have yourself a merry little Christmas! Black River Christian is ringing in the holiday cheer by announcing today's release of Christmas Eve In Bethlehem (Deluxe Edition) from artist/songwriter Hannah Kerr. As revealed earlier this week on Instagram, the album's feature single, "Here To Stay," is a duet with Cochren & Co. 
 
This past Monday (10/19) marked the second anniversary of Kerr's holiday debut, Christmas Eve In Bethlehem, which to date has garnered more than 20 million streams, including her take on the iconic "Winter Wonderland." Adding to the 2018 ten-song holiday project, the deluxe version offers five additional songs, including three originals co-written by Kerr, "Forever Evergreen," "My Kind of Christmas," and "Here To Stay," which is currently at radio and premiered online with CCMmagazine.com yesterday.
 
Kerr's renditions of the timeless holiday tunes "Holly Jolly Christmas" and "The Christmas Song" also appear on the deluxe album. Produced by Mark Miller, Josh Kerr, and Doug Johnson Christmas Eve In Bethlehem (Deluxe Edition) is digitally available here
 
“I’m so excited to share the deluxe edition of Christmas Eve in Bethlehem!" exclaims Kerr. "During this crazy year, I’ve felt so inspired to write songs about hope and our God who never changes. Even with 2020 being so difficult for many of us, we can look at the Christmas story and remember that God is with us. His love is never out of season; it’s always available to us, and I hope these songs I’ve chosen to add on remind people of that. This is a collection that sums up what Christmas means to me: spending time with family, feeling warm and joyful, praising God for His unchanging love, and remembering the hope of Jesus Christ, our Emmanuel.”
