The platinum-selling electronic artist and violinist, Lindsey Stirling, and three-time GRAMMY Award-winning country artist and frontman of Hootie & The Blowfish, Darius Rucker, team up for their genre-bending, glorious version of “What Child Is This?”
The two are scheduled to perform the classic Christmas carol for this year’s CMA Country Christmas airing on Monday, November 30 on ABC.
The duet is out today as a digital-only single on Lindseystomp Records via Concord Records.
Stirling previously released a solo version of the track on 2017’s Warmer In The Winter.
“I was so excited to be a part of the CMA Country Christmas again this year,” shares Stirling. “Every year, they give me an amazing chance to sparkle in their spectacular show. This year was extra special since I got to collaborate with the amazing Darius Rucker. Hope everyone loves it as much as we do!”
“I was so honored when the CMA asked me to perform ‘What Child Is This’ and to be getting to do it with an amazing musician like Lindsey is just awesome,” adds Rucker.
Stirling will entertain her fans this holiday season with her “Lindsey Stirling: Home For The Holidays” live stream taking place on Saturday, December 12th. The ticketed event will feature two exclusive air-times: 12 pm PT/3 pm ET and 5 pm PT/8 pm ET.
The live stream will feature Stirling performing classic holiday songs including “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “All I Want For Christmas,” “Let It Snow,” and “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.”
The all-new holiday show will be over an hour of holiday entertainment that will keep viewers glued to their couches and screens. The live stream will be available on-demand for 72 following the second show. Tickets are on sale now here.
Darius Rucker also just recently released a holiday song with his band, Hootie & The Blowfish, and a young artist Abigail Hodges, called “Won’t Be Home For Christmas.” The track honors the sacrifices that the military and their families make on a daily basis.
