American Idol Alum HunterGirl Holiday Tracks Featured in Hallmark Christmas Movies
HunterGirl has released her first-ever original holiday tracks with the spirited “Hurry Up Christmas” and the dreamy “Christmas Again.” Both of the songs are co-written by the American Idol 2022 runner-up and 19 Recordings/Wheelhouse Records’ artist.
“When I found out that two songs I wrote were going to be featured in the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies, I was so excited for my whole family, especially my Nana,” she explains. “I’ve been watching Hallmark Christmas movies with my family since I was a little girl, so hearing my song, ‘Hurry Up Christmas,’ in Christmas Island over the weekend was a moment I will never forget.”
The song behind Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” and new movie Christmas Island, which premiered over the weekend (11/11), the joyful and jolly “Hurry Up Christmas” highlights the country singer/songwriter’s dynamic voice. While “Christmas Again,” to be featured in the network’s upcoming sequel, Haul Out The Holly: Lit Up, premiering November 25, demonstrates the versatility of her vocal range.
