There’s no better way to ring in the 2023 holiday season than with Sherri Harding’s enchanting new single, “Doin’ Christmas Right.”
Produced by Dick Cooper, with Brian Cooper on bass and Rob Holtz on percussion, Sherri’s new song is another project created in collaboration with The Cooper Brothers. Instrumentals by the world-class Muscle Shoals Horns inject warmth, energy, and a beloved holiday sound into the single.
The holiday has always been dear to the Ottawa singer, who treasures her childhood memories of selling Christmas trees with her siblings—and has always dreamed of producing original Christmas music. With heartwarming lyrics and Sherri’s signature soulful vocals, the song captures the magic of those childhood Christmases—the excitement, the joy, the bright lights on every corner—and allows the listener to experience anew the startling beauty of the holidays.
The single comes on the heels of Sherri’s debut album, A Million Pieces, which was released earlier this year. Also produced by Dick Cooper, the album featured a powerful lineup of seasoned musicians like David Hood, Kelvin Holly, Lynn Williams, and others. Dick wrote the album for Sherri after her 2016 performance with The Cooper Brothers, where he recognized a new talent deserving of the spotlight. The duo traveled to Muscle Shoals to record, and following the album’s success, continued their collaboration with “Doin’ Christmas Right.”
Even before the release of A Million Pieces, Sherri always wanted to create an original Christmas song. With “Doin’ Christmas Right,” now that dream has come true.
