ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Straight from the Heart" is what you get from Lana Puckett & Kim Person. Passionate vocals, precision harmonies accompanied by beautiful acoustic guitars and piano.

"At Christmas the Heart Goes Home" has created quite a stir since its release. The traditional message of Christmas is woven throughout this recording. Fresh new songs that carry on the holiday tradition combined with a several Christmas "chestnuts" make this a CD that some people say "they play all year 'round."

Joining Lana and Kim on "At Christmas The Heart Goes Home" is their "extended musical family" a cast of highly respected and talented musicians and writers. The love of family is certainly reflected in the music they have created. Pam Rose and Mary Ann Kennedy (currently touring with Emmylou Harris) and Jill Colucci are well known for their unique vocal styles, musicianship and song-writing abilities. Kim Person and Brian Wood (formerly with Nanci Griffith) on acoustic guitars, Alison Prestwood (formerly with Rodney Crowell and Patty Loveless) on bass, Catherine Styron (currently touring with Olivia Newton-John) on acoustic piano and percussionist/drummer John Gardner (formerly with The Dixie Chicks) round out the rhythm section. Jim Hoke, voted instrumentalist of the year by the Nashville Music Awards adds his smokey tenor sax to "White Christmas" and "Send Yourself Home For Christmas" and Andrea Zonn (currently touring with James Taylor and former violinist for Vince Gill) plays some beautiful violin & viola lines.

Response to this CD has been overwhelming. The message is beautiful, the arrangements, vocals and musicianship are impeccable. This is a Christmas CD you'll play every year forever.

4 time Kerrville New Folk Finalists, Lana Puckett and Kim Person are known for their award-winning songwriting, heartfelt vocals, precision harmonies and intricate guitar work. Music critic Monette Austin (The Daily Press) described their music as songs “written in the Key of Life, and although their songs speak of ordinary things it’s the way they put them together that is gaining them national recognition.”

Lana and Kim had each enjoyed successful individual careers as performing artists before their journey as a duo began in 1981. They teamed up after winning the top country vocalist award in the American Songwriter/Columbia Recording Artist Search. With this accomplishment under their belts, they began co-writing and formed their own record label, Cimirron/Rainbird Records.

When Lana & Kim began writing and producing their own music they quickly realized they would have to travel in order to get their music heard and expand their fan base. These travels have taken them on several US cross-country tours performing at coffeehouses, house concerts, clubs, and most of the well known singer/songwriter folk festivals in the country. It was at the 1993 Kerrville New Folk Competition that singer/songwriter artist Steve Gillette (Darcy Farrow, John Denver; Unto Us This Night, Garth Brooks) first heard their music. Several years later, at another songwriting event, Steve
approached Lana & Kim about recording their song “Cornstalk Pony” for his recording “Texas to Tennessee.”

If you like Christmas, you'll love this CD. When I heard it, I immediately wanted to run out and buy some chestnuts, put on a sweater and curl up around the fire. And there are some very special sweet moments herein. There's a lot of soul in this work.

A beautiful blending of voices
I love the songs on this cd. I will play it all year long not only at Christmas. It has a beautiful blending of voices. Almost as if it were one voice and then somehow divided into two and then back to one. It is wonderful.

can we talk about the christmas spirit??!!
OK, now I know I biased because I know these girls and I know how much of their hearts they put into the making of this CD. Having said that, when I first sat down and listened, I wanted to run right out and buy some chestnuts, put on a sweater and sit in front of the fire. There is so much spirit and soul in this work. Hats off to you ladies. Well done. What a great Christmas CD!

warm and inspiring music that communicates to the inner self
The music on this cd is captivating and enthusiastic. It is well constructed and beautifully played. The lyrics are heartfelt and inspiring. The vocals are clean, crisp, and precise - easy on the ears. It's a cd you can listen to time and again without tiring of the sound.

Exquisite Christmas Collection
Although the lead track, "Christmas Love", has received well-deserved and widespread radio exposure in the mid-Atlantic for awhile now, it's just the beginning of this marvelously fresh, exquisitely produced collection of holiday material. I highly recommend At Christmas The Heart Goes Home to anyone looking for new, high-quality Christmas music. Though the songs will in many cases be new to the ears, they are all thoroughly imbued with the timeless spirit of the season. What a treasure!

Nice voices, with stylized, thoughtful arrangements.
The vocals are a highlight on a CD full of highlights. This CD becomes uniquely compelling by virtue of its underlying themes of romance and nostalgia, which run throughout. There are so many artistic touches that make this a unique and important holiday offering, it is easy to recommend Lana Puckett and Kim Person's At Christmas The Heart Goes Home for all listeners. Richard Banks, 2006.
