In The Spirit: A Celebration of the Holidays - Vinyl LP Deluxe Edition


John Driskell Hopkins & Atlanta Pops Orchestra

John Driskell Hopkins of Zac Brown Band brings his signature baritone voice to Christmas favorites in both a new and timeless setting with the help of Atlanta Pops Orchestra and some very special guests. Tap into a beautiful and nostalgic world, complete with soaring arrangements, expansive harmonies, and even humor! Iconic friends Indigo Girls help to light up the classic “Do You Hear What I Hear?,” bluegrass trailblazers Balsam Range bring the Appalachian mountains into view on “What Child Is This?,” and Laura Bell Bundy and JDH take “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” for a new spin.
