This profound and powerful acoustic rendition of the Christmas favorite reflects on the miracle of Christ’s birth.
Whether Jimmy Mattingly is shining onstage as he performs with Garth Brooks, or crafting magic in the studio, his talents are unparalleled and especially evident on this latest release. Mattingly produced, mixed, and mastered this track, and features chart-topping chart topping Ashley Lewis on mandolin and vocals, the only 5-time National Banjo Champion in the world, Gary “Biscuit” Davis on banjo, world-renowned Dennis Crouch on bass, and Jan Underwood on harmony vocals.
Mattingly comments on the release, “This intimate version of ‘Mary Did You Know’ brings home the personal conversation one might have with the Mother Mary about her Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Ashley Lewis delivers this story with the passion and outstanding vocals that should be put into this message. Gary “Biscuit” Davis and Dennis Crouch complement this track with the artistry that they both have brought to many epic tracks in their careers. Love this simple and beautiful track.”
