Stoney Creek Bluegrass Band release "That Child Was Born (Christmas in West Virginia)"

BRISTOL, Tenn. (Nov. 23, 2018) - Stoney Creek Bluegrass Band and Calv'ry Music have released an original Christmas song, "That Child Was Born (Christmas in West Virginia)".

The song, written by guitarist Kenton "Red" Catlett, retells the biblical gospel story during the verses, while the chorus describes a traditional mountain Christmas in West Virginia. Libby Files performs the song's lead vocals, with four part harmony rounded out by the entire band. "That Child Was Born" features the resophonic guitar work of Troy Stangle and the seasonally appropriate mandolin melodies of Brett Smeltzer. The track opens with a portion of the traditional English folk tune "Greensleeves" (the melody used in the carol "What Child is This?"), arranged by Smeltzer.

"That Child Was Born (Christmas in West Virginia)" is available to radio broadcasters through AirPlay Direct. Bluegrass fans can find the song at most online music outlets, as well as the band's website, www.stoneycreekbluegrass.net, and the band's Facebook page.
