A Pinecastle Christmas Gatherin'Pinecastle Records announced on their website that the label's second Christmas album, A Pinecastle Christmas Gatherin', is available for this year's holiday shopping season. Make sure the music rotation for this year's holiday gatherings includes a little bluegrass music. Released in 2003 the album includes 18 tracks from a variety of Pinecastle artists including Larry Stephenson, Jeff Autry, Wayne Benson, Aubrey Haynie, Jim Hurst and Missy Raines, Jesse McReynolds, Charlie Waller, David Parmley, Eddie & Martha Adcock, Josh Williams, Nothin' Fancy, Special Consensus, Wilfire and more.

At a gathering of Pinecastle artists and executives several years ago, someone suggested we do a multi-artist Christmas album. A Pinecastle Christmas Gatherin' is the result. Eighteen songs were recorded by 16 groups, in a dozen different studios, at various time; some in the middle of summer heat, some during Christmas breaks from the road, some early morning or late at night; whenever the band members could get together, and a studio and an engineer were available. A couple were already in the can. Most were recorded the year prior to the release, some the fall before, and one as late as two days before the deadline for sequencing and mastering.

Pinecastle's first Christmas album, Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas, was released in 1994 and featured a variety of their bluegrass music artists on the label at the time. Some of whom included The Bass Mountain Boys, Terry Eldredge, The Rarely Herd, David Crow and more.
