Jay Allen and Allie Colleen Collaborate on Holiday Classic “O Holy Night”

(Nashville, TN – December 1, 2023) – Country artists Jay Allen and Allie Colleen have come together to deliver a captivating rendition of the cherished Christmas classic, “O Holy Night.” The eagerly awaited holiday track promises to be a highlight of this year’s holiday music offerings. The track is now available for download here.

 

“O Holy Night” is a holiday staple, and paired with the duo’s emotional vocals, it makes for a soul-stirring experience that is perfect for the upcoming season. Produced by Micah Wilshire, Allen, and Colleen are excited to showcase a more dramatic style on the song.

 

Jay Allen shared his enthusiasm for the collaboration: “I became a fan of Allie a few months back when our agent introduced me to her music. Once I heard her voice and saw that she’s covered in tattoos, I knew we had to do something together. My label suggested a holiday cover, and we landed on this haunting version of ‘O Holy Night.’ I really hope it resonates with everyone, but either way, I couldn’t be more proud of this project and the friendship I’ve gained with Allie.

 

Allie Colleen, known for her iconic voice and heartfelt songwriting, expressed her excitement about this collaboration: “Honestly, I’ve never really crossed my mind to put out a Christmas song before, because I just wasn’t sure how well my sound would represent a Christmas song, but when Jay Allen was kind enough to ask me to record a Christmas song with the intent of showcasing our haunting side, I was very excited. I could not be more proud of how this project turned out, nonetheless the way it represents our individual sounds.

 

“O’ Holy Night” was mixed and mastered by Micah Wilshire, who also played all the instruments on the project.
