Giveaway and Review: Colbie Caillat "Christmas in the Sand" CD



What do you think?

I LOVE it! I do have to admit that I am a huge Christmas music fan. I have a hard time waiting until after Thanksgiving to start listening to Christmas music. And even though I like in the frigid upper Midwest, I still very much enjoyed listening to her sing about Santa in his bathing suit trying to catch the waves. The tune is very catchy and I am sure it is going to be a hit on the radios this holiday season. I hope it is because I would love to listen to this song over & over again.

I only had the chance to review the songs and video clip, which you have that same opportunity. So, I cannot speak to what the rest of the CD sounds like. But I do love her voice and so I presume it sounds beautiful. One lucky reader will have the opportunity to get the full CD. I am looking forward to receiving my own copy of the CD.

Here is also a chance in to view a 1 minute segment of the video:



California songstress Colbie Caillat has released the title track of her upcoming album Christmas In The Sand, out on Oct. 23 on Universal Republic.

Caillat started thinking about title track off her upcoming holiday album while relaxing on a Hawaiian beach with friends this past spring. The Malibu-born,  platinum recording artist
brings her easy going rhythms and breezy style to CHRISTMAS IN THE SAND
 which features four original Christmas songs.

"I was thinking, what do they listen to over here at Christmas time? I bet they don't always want to hear songs about white Christmases and bundling up 'cause it's cold outside," she told Billboard. "They want to have a holiday song they can relate to."





ONE LUCKY WINNER WILL WIN THEIR OWN COPY OF THE "Christmas in the Sand" CD!!
