Country-Pop singer/songwriter Sarah Mae Chilton recently released her new holiday tune Merry Happy Everything, written by Jan Buckingham (Whitney Houston, Tim McGraw, Pam Tillis, Tammy Wynette, George Jones) and Thom Gimbel (Aerosmith, Foreigner)
With joyous lyrics like sending cards to all my friends, ’til I see them once again, “Merry Happy Everything” is the perfect holiday celebration song and it’s sure to bring a smile to listener’s faces.
“I chose to release Merry Happy Everything, first and foremost, because I think it’s a great song,” Sarah Mae explains. “My friend and hit songwriter, Jan Buckingham, sent me Merry Happy Everything last winter during quarantine after she had put together the whole thing in the middle of the night. The whole Christmas/Holiday season is about giving to others, celebrating loved ones and being together. I want to approach my music like my life: I’ll always let myself cry from heartbreak, but never want to forget to be grateful and celebrate how beautiful it is to live.”
Sarah Mae Chilton will also be hosting the “Merry Happy Everything Round” at Belcourt Taps on December 18, 2021. The show begins at 6:00 P.M. and will feature Lexi Cox, Greg Herndon, Ray Duncan, Jan Buckingham, Jenny Lou and Lawrence D.
