January’s free download is the original demo of a song I wrote in the early 1990s. The demo of “New Year’s Eve 1999”, was made when the end of the 20th century still seemed far away. The song wasn’t recorded until Alabama heard it in 1996 and recorded it for their Christmas album Christmas Volume II. In 1999, I duetted with lead singer Randy Owen on a promotional single intended for the upcoming millenial celebration (a rare collector’s item these days). You can read more about the song and hear Alabama’s version here.
