  1. I just watched the movie “A Country Christmas Movie,” and was wondering if there was a place to get the words to the song she sings at the end to maybe share with a few people. It was such a great song and there are so many people out there that I wish could be in a room together and listen to it. Anyway if there is a place to find the words please let me know. Thanks Ashlie
