“The holidays are always a special time for us,” said Cracker Barrel Senior Marketing Manager Julie Ulmer. “We created ‘Rocking and Stockings’ to bring together two of music’s most beloved artists for exclusive performances as a joyful way to kick off the season and to help inspire the love and togetherness we hope our guests feel when they dine with us.”
“Christmas is far and away my favorite holiday and recording the music for ‘Glow’ was a dream come true,” said Eldredge. “I’ve been inspired for this record from a very young age, and I dreamt of the day I could record all these classic songs that I’ve loved since I was a little kid. I think we found a little magic on this album and Christmas is all about magic!”
