“Much of what makes Duvall tick comes from her home state of Texas. She grew up being influenced by the sounds around her: country, blues, gospel, and rock. Duvall also represents the power of being a single mom while pursuing her dreams.” — Lesley Janes, Writer of The Nash News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Rising female country artist Erin Duvall unveils a heartwarming holiday single, “Best Time of the Year,” on December 1. This Christmas-inspired song infuses the holiday season with Erin’s soulful voice, capturing the essence of the most magical time of the year. As a single mother of four, Christmas holds a unique and profound significance as a holiday with the family. Christmas serves as an opportunity to create lasting memories and strengthen bonds that bring warmth, joy, and togetherness. The chorus, adorned with sentiments of sugar, spice, and everything nice, emphasizes the love that permeates this time of year.




In the spirit of the holiday season, Erin warmly expresses the comforting glow of stockings by the fire. “Christmas is truly the best time of the year! The excitement that the holiday season brings for me and my family is beyond compare. The stockings hung by the fire, the twinkle in the Christmas lights, the Christmas movies on repeat, the hot cocoa, the gingerbread houses, and the extra bubble of joy that you can feel from everyone around are pure magic and something I wish I could bottle all year long.” With this heartfelt message, Erin captures the spirit of the joyous and enchanting atmosphere that defines Christmas. The mention of choir-sung songs further enriches the holiday atmosphere, reinforcing cherished traditions and shared happiness.


For many, Christmas holds a special place in their hearts, as it brings a unique blend of nostalgia, elation, and a sense of tradition. This song delves into the deeper meaning of Christmas, portraying it as more than a season—it’s a reason to believe. The bridge paves the way for a heartfelt message of kindness, warm greetings, and generosity, all represented by the gifts beneath the Christmas tree.


Crafted in collaboration with her longtime producers, The Baker Brothers, acclaimed musicians who have toured with Kirk Franklin and Bishop T.D. Jakes, Erin Duvall’s “Best Time of the Year” embodies the sentiment that, “With Jesus being the reason for this season, it is a blessing to share His love with our families… Christmas is absolutely “The Best Time of the Year.’”


Evoking a range of emotions, from the excitement of gift-giving to reflection on a deeper level, “Best Time of the Year” has the power to create a sense of unity and shared experience, connecting people across generations. Erin says, “I have wanted to write a Christmas album for as long as I can remember. So this single is the start of much more to come!” ‘Best Time of the Year’ is about the feeling I have around the Christmas season and all of the joy, peace, and love I want to spread along the way! Erin’s creativity and contribution to the cultural tapestry of the holiday season symbolize tradition and family. “Christmas is about family to me. The traditions that run deep bring a sense of peace and calm. It is about the reason for the season. I hope to spread that feeling to everyone through my new single, ‘Best Time of the Year,” adds Erin.


Beyond her musical endeavors, Erin’s foundation, Twice the Love, focuses on the social, emotional, and financial challenges faced by single parents throughout the year, emphasizing the importance of support beyond the holiday season. Erin’s commitment to this cause adds another layer to her multifaceted identity—musician, mother, and entrepreneur. “Being a single parent is twice the work, twice the stress, and twice the tears, but also twice the hugs, twice the love, and twice the pride.” Learn more about Erin’s foundation and upcoming charity events at


As a performer, her emotive singing and heartfelt lyrics create a narrative that goes beyond music, reaching into a realm of unity, love, and delight. Her artistic prowess transports listeners into an enchanting world, a gateway to a space filled with the love that defines the holiday season. “So grab a cup of hot cocoa or cider, load everyone up in the car, roll down the windows, and rock out to this new upbeat Christmas song while you take in all of the Christmas magic to see, adds Erin.”


Erin’s latest single “Girls Weekend” landed her placements in Cowgirl Magazine, The Morning Hangover, and CountryPolitan Magazine, alongside artists Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, Colbie Caillat, HunterGirl, Carly Pearce, Kelsea Ballerini, and more.

The exciting animated world of Aunty E started in 2006 with producer Billy Henry. Billy has worked with prominent acts like The Chicks, Courtyard Hounds, Fleetwood Mac, and Shakira. The project is very near and dear to Erin’s heart, and she is excited to share the progress with all of you as she revamps it.

So now, as a single mother of four, I feel very strongly to leave a legacy behind for my children that makes them proud,” says Duvall.
