Country artist Leslie Cours Mather has released “Another Christmas Loving You”, a heartfelt holiday duet she recorded with legendary songwriter Steve Dorff.
The new single was premiered in a lyric video last Friday on Huffington Post via Celeb Secrets Country.
Collaborator Steve Dorff is an award-winning composer and songwriter who has written for the likes of Barbara Streisand and Celine Dion. About working with him on “Another Christmas Loving You” Mather said, “I’ve had the good fortune to work with the talented and accomplished producer, Denny Diante. Denny and Steve Dorff have been good friends for many years, they actually lived in the same neighborhood and their kids grew up together. So knowing Steve’s amazing track record, I was excited to get introduced through Denny, and have the opportunity to access his really inspired songwriting. We recorded a couple of Steve’s non-holiday songs (“Fall Softer” and “One More Long Goodbye”) which turned out great.
Along the way in that process, we discovered Steve’s song “Another Christmas Loving You” and Denny had the idea to have Steve sing it with me as a duet. We met in the studio on a hot day this past summer….we cranked up the air conditioning, and I brought out some Christmas cookies and hung some twinkling lights to help create the atmosphere, and it must have worked, because I think we captured some holiday magic that day, as if it were December!”
“Another Christmas Loving You” is the second holiday single for Mather, following up last years “Santa Baby (You’ll Be Mine)”. This past summer, Mather also released the powerful “We Are America” anthem, which premiered its video nationwide on Heartland TV and was awarded “New & Active” status on the Billboard country chart.
About Leslie Cours Mather
As the daughter of a Lt. Colonel in the Army, Leslie Cours Mather has lived all over the world. She attended Vanderbilt University in Music City and during her time in Tennessee, she enrolled in acting school and worked for Bob Farnsworth at Hummingbird Productions. From there, Leslie moved to L.A., to hone her craft while starting a family. A chance business meeting introduced her to legendary producer/record executive Denny Diante who put her back in Nashville with a “Wrecking Crew” of studio players at Blackbird Studios. The result is the disc, COUNTRIFIED, due for release later this year. With influences ranging from Linda Ronstadt to Martina McBride and Trisha Yearwood, Mather presents a powerful vocal style that is uniquely her own.
In 2016 Mather released the patriotic unity anthem “We Are America”. The new single shows Mather in a new light. Her previous three MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart singles (“That Was The Whiskey,” “Hell Hath No Fury,” “Countrified”) were targeted at Country audiences and more focused on the singer’s sense of fun and showcasing her amazing vocal versatility. Appealing to a broader scope of listeners, the new release takes an unapologetic patriotic stand.
