The last few years have been bittersweet for former Owensboro resident Steve Bridgmon. Not only did his beautiful sister succumb to glioblastoma brain cancer on July 27, 2020, but he also lost his Dad to the coronavirus on July 31, 2020. He turned all of his sadness into new music and a new book. It just makes sense that he's releasing a new Christmas album. Through words and song, Steve has a way of sharing his story of faith, love, and survival during difficult days.


Living in Nashville Steve has the chance to work with some of the best songwriters, and producers in the country. His connections paid off while planning "Christmas Dreams". Songwriters Corey Lee Barker, Mark E. Barnowski, and many others signed up to be part of the project. The album was produced and engineered in August by Paul Bowen, with a special guest collaboration with Thomas Mac. You can purchase "Christmas Dreams" on all music streaming platforms on November 1st, 2023. A portion of each album sold will benefit Music Amplifies.

Steve explained how the project came about.

"In the spring, I received a phone call from a very good Songwriter friend who wanted me to record 10 original Christmas songs. This particular songwriter has major placement in several Lifetime and Hallmark Christmas movies. I went through an entire catalog of original songs that I thought would fit me and my voice. I tasked my good friend and producer Paul Bowen because he'd been the engineer on my last 3 studio songs to engineer and produce the Christmas album. We had an absolute blast recording these 10 songs on August 1st at East Iris Studios in Nashville. It was 105 degrees outside but we managed to bring the Christmas spirit in the studio! Joining me on one of the tunes is TikTok and country music star Thomas Mac, who is not only a great friend but a talent!"

Quote from one of the songwriters Corey Lee Barker: "We are currently pitching these songs for Christmas and Holiday movies in 2023 and beyond."
