The Petersens release their first Christmas album titled Christmas with the Petersens on November 6, 2020.

The Petersens began working on their Christmas album in February of 2020 at Digi Grass Studios in Ozark, MO. Due to COVID-19, the recordings were put on hold. When Julianne started college in Arkansas, the Petersens found a recording studio, Haxton Road, in Arkansas so Julianne could travel easily back and forth from college to finish the project.

The album was mixed and mastered by Troy Dixon. The photography was done by Aaron Clark Photography. Album design was by Austin Meyer.

    This is one of the finest Christmas albums I have ever heard. The musicianship and vocals are, as always , flawless and the choice of tracks is inspired. The combined vocals on Silent Night are simply gorgeous and What Child Is This sees a an outstanding vocal from Emmett. There is not a bad track on this CD but the stand-outs for me are God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and O Come, O Come Emmanuel. Julianne’s vocal performance is dripping with passion and talent and sends shivers down the spine. Buy this album, you will not be disappointed.

    The Petersen Christmas Album is terrific. We discovered the Petersen Band on YouTube. Since then, we’ve purchased all their albums through Amazon. This Christmas album is fun to listen to, especially the Santa Train/Sleigh Ride. A very, very talented family! Great Job, guys!

    Wonderful selections with awesome arrangments and unique vocals. Julianne is the next American Idol. Move over Ellen… Not really all the vocals are FANTASTIC. Listening all the time on the car. Can’t wait for the live concert on the 20th.

    This is the nicest collection of Christmas music I’ve ever had. When I’m out driving in frozen Illinois it’s always playing. Like all their music-How do you pick a favorite? I gave up on that because all their music is wonderful stuff. They are thoughtful, clever artists who truly love their fans and make me feel that I’m part of that family. All who follow them know just what I mean. It was a year ago that God led me to them with CALIFORNIA and I’m so grateful for that. And I’m grateful for Liz Newton for being there for lyrics, information and demonstrating what a classy lady she is. Merry Christmas to Liz and her family, the Petersens and of course Mister Emmett Franz.

    What a beautiful Christmas album!! I ordered it late and I have playing it everyday since I received it a week ago. The talent of all these musicians is amazing. This music brings joy to my heart.

  15. Henry Van Weeren

    I’ve been listening to the Petersens for much of 2020. Always a joy to hear their musicianship and harmonies. When my wife overheard me say they made a Christmas album, she ordered a signed copy. It just arrived and will be played anytime!
    Thank you from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada!

    Merry Christmas Year Round. I am a person who loves all things Christmas; its symbols, warmth, spirit of love, and all of the good things it represents. So I find that Christmas music, if done well, makes me happy and is something that I can listen to both during the holidays as well as many times throughout the year. This is that CD! If you look at the You Tube Videos of the Petersens performing the songs that ended up on this CD, you will see a lovable family, obviously having much fun while singing like the angels on your Christmas tree joyous for the event.

    I love this album so much!! All of The Petersens music is amazing and I highly recommend all their albums. My parents just got me this album for my birthday. When I opened my gift and found a SIGNED Petersens album I almost fainted!! I have never been so excited about any present in my entire life!! Petersens, y’all are so amazing. I love you guys so much!! Thank you for the great music! I’m coming to see you in Branson someday! 🙂
