If you were driving by the Franklin Theatre on Wednesday, October 1st, you may have noticed some snow falling.  No, it’s not another polar vortex, just a album release party  for Michael W. Smith’s new Christmas album.  Inside the Franklin Theatre, “The Spirit of Christmas” continued with Christmas decorations including  a few Christmas trees and presents.     Did you know there are only eleven Saturdays until Christmas?

We talk to Michael about his A list of performers including, Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Jennifer Nettles, Michael McDonald and Bono. We also talked about one of Michael’s favorite Christmas memories that makes some noise, the upcoming tour that will make a stop in Nashville on December 4th and have you heard anyone say Merry Christmas in October?  Take a listen.

“The Spirit of Christmas” is available now on iTunes as well as in stores.
