Cracker Barrel teams with Pentatonix, Mickey Guyton for holiday special

Christmas special featuring new, timeless songs to debut on Dec 15th

Care is in the air this holiday season as Cracker Barrel Old Country Store has announced it will present Sounds of the Season: Together Again, a holiday special with songs and conversations from three-time GRAMMY Award-winning and multi-platinum-selling artist Pentatonix and country music star Mickey Guyton. The artists will showcase Christmas songs with their own unique take, while sharing their favorite holiday traditions and creating new memories around the table. The 30-minute holiday feature, including new and timeless songs such as “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “Evergreen,” “O Holy Night,” “How Great Thou Art” and more, will be available to stream on Cracker Barrel’s YouTube and Facebook channels starting December 15th.

At Cracker Barrel, the spirit of the holiday season is rooted in music and bringing everyone together at the table. This year, the brand is using music to celebrate the traditions we share and those that make us unique with the help of Pentatonix and Mickey Guyton. All with various backgrounds and upbringings, these artists will inspire viewers to not only reflect on their own holiday traditions, but also to learn from one another throughout the Christmas season and beyond.

“As friends and families reunite this year after spending recent holidays apart, we are excited to celebrate the season through music with Cracker Barrel’s second edition of Sounds of the Season: Together Again,” Cracker Barrel Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Tate states. “We hope the songs, new and old, as well as the meaningful discussions Pentatonix and Mickey have in this year’s holiday special inspire viewers to consider how they can welcome a diverse range of people, thoughts and traditions to their table this holiday season.”

“The holiday season is our favorite time of year! It was extra special this year because we got to collaborate with Mickey and remake ‘How Great Thou Art.’ It was also so meaningful to be able to bond and share our favorite holiday rituals with her,” shares Scott Hoying from Pentatonix. “Coming off of the release of our new holiday album, ‘Evergreen,’ we’re thrilled to keep sharing in the joy of the season alongside Cracker Barrel as they leverage the power of diverse voices in music to represent the joy found in the holidays year-round.”

“I’m so excited to join Cracker Barrel in spreading holiday cheer and care this holiday season,” Guyton adds. “The holiday season is a special time for families across the country to celebrate together. While we all have our own traditions, it’s been inspiring to come together with Pentatonix to celebrate our unique takes on these holiday favorites.”

Pentatonix most recently released their 2021 holiday album, Evergreen. The group will kick off their 16 date Pentatonix: The Evergreen Christmas Tour 2021 on November 27th.
