One Track Sunday: Duck Dynasty Clan Sings Ragin' Cajun Redneck Christmas
By Jessica Rawden 2013-10-27 10:42:24
The Duck Dynasty clan has been a huge presence in pop culture over the past couple of years. The Robertsons have made a big impact on television, bringing in incredible ratings and even selling millions of copies of DVDs. Now, they are going to attempt to branch out into another artistic medium, putting together a Christmas album for their most ardent of fans. The first single from the album is a little bit lacking in the lyrics department, but it’s surprisingly catchy, and it’s called “Ragin’ Cajun Redneck Christmas.”
The main members of the Robertson clan recently headed to Nashville, where they signed with Universal’s Nashville label to create Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas. The clan recorded 14 songs for their first album endeavor. Many of the songs on the new album are some Christmas classics, including “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Regardless, the upcoming album has some original content, as well.
According to THR, Willie Robertson and country songwriter Dallas Davidson penned the above “Ragin’ Cajun Redneck Christmas” single. The clan has also put together a twist on “Deck the Halls,” turning that song into “Duck the Halls.” Willie Robertson sings lead vocals on the “Ragin’ Cajun Redneck Christmas” single, while Phil, Missy, Uncle Si, and plenty of other family members also contribute across the album.
I’m not sure how skilled at singing all of the Robertsons are, but they will get some help on Ragin’ Cajun Redneck Christmas. Veteran country singer Alison Kraus will pop up on one single, as will popular country singer Luke Bryan and George Strait. Even with the help, they’ll have some other big holiday albums to contend with. Kelly Clarkson and Trace Adkins both have country Christmas albums coming, and Jewel and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir also have holiday albums coming out.
You can check out the full tracklist over at iTunes before Duck The Halls is released this Tuesday. Or, you can also take a look at some of the other One Track Sunday videos, here.
