Singer/Songwriter Josh Ritter just released his original holiday song 'Wintertime (The Snow Is Coming Down)" which is apart of the Amazon Original Playlist, "Acoustic Christmas".
Ritter's contribution is 1 of 21 new tracks set to be added to the Amazon Original playlist "Acoustic Christmas" on December 1st, which will include all-new compositions from The White Buffalo, Noah Gunderson, Jim Lauderdale and more. Plus some covers from the likes of Sera Cahoone and Noah Cyrus.
"While working on my recent record, Gathering, I was in a phase of writing whatever came to mind,” the singer/songwriter told Billboard in a statement. "I tried not to filter anything. One morning, I woke up with a holiday song in my head. I worked on it a little while and ended up recording it on one of the hottest days of the year.”
The talented song writer Josh Ritter paints the perfect picture of people ice skating on the frozen pond, the sound of carolers fills the air, and the snow is coming down.
