John Driskell Hopkins announces the release of his new Christmas CD, “In The Spirit”, to global radio via AirPlay Direct.

John Driskell Hopkins of Zac Brown Band brings his signature baritone voice to Christmas favorites in both a new and timeless setting with the help of Atlanta Pops Orchestra and some very special guests. Tap into a beautiful and nostalgic world, complete with soaring arrangements, expansive harmonies, and even humor! Iconic friends Indigo Girls help to light up the classic "Do You Hear What I Hear?", bluegrass trailblazers Balsam Range bring the Appalachian mountains into view on "What Child Is This?", and Laura Bell Bundy and JDH take "Baby, It's Cold Outside" for a new spin. Enjoy the ride! You're sure to find yourself "In The Spirit!"

"These songs have always evoked some of my most treasured Christmas memories and I couldn’t be more thrilled with Atlanta Pops Orchestra and their amazing performances.

I’m so excited to release my new Christmas CD to global radio via AirPlay Direct!"  -- John Driskell Hopkins

“The musical landscape, and presence of mind this album creates for the listener is amazing.  You are instantly taken on a wonderful, symphonic ride through Christmas Town, and down Memory Lane.  A very important new addition to any classic collection.”  -- Robert Weingartz, Chairman - AirPlay Direct
