This unique rendition of the popular song is the perfect tune for Country music lovers to add to their Christmas playlists and is now available to download and stream on digital platforms!
“Through the craziness of COVID, the longing to be home with my friends and family has become more and more these last 2 years. It made me think back to a project I had worked on with Boot Barn in 2018 for one of their commercials.” shares Mary Sarah. “When working on the song, I couldn’t help but have that feeling of wanting to head home, and what better time to do that than the holidays! That thought began the journey of making my own Christmas version of the already classic ‘Country Roads’".
Country Rebel media and lifestyle outlet is premiering four special performance videos by Mary Sarah. The first video features her heartbreakingly relatable song 'Boys In Bars,' and will be followed by 'Without You,' 'Chain Smokin’, and 'Stubborn.' Mary Sarah was also featured on Country Rebel with CMA and ACM award-winning and Grammy-nominated hitmaker, David Frizzell for a special duet of Frizzell’s hit tune, 'You’re The Reason God Made Oklahoma.'
“I co-wrote ‘Boys in Bars’ with some amazing friends of mine, Grammy Award-winning songwriter, Aaron Raitiere, and Bart Butler. I remember going into the writing session that day and I never thought we would be writing the most vulnerable song I have to date,” shares Mary Sarah. “‘Boys in Bars’ is about a time in my life that I am not proud of, but I’m also not ashamed of. As humans, we long to be loved, to find love, and we can long for it so much that we look in the wrong places. I hope this song reaches others who might have had similar experiences and brings comfort to their hearts knowing they are not alone. Thank you so much to Country Rebel for being so kind and sharing my song with the world! Love my Country Rebel Fam!”
With more than 10 years of performing, you could say this young woman has been given a “Coat of many colors”. The fabric of her life brings forth a vast array of opportunities and experiences. Mary Sarah was raised in the Texas Opry circuit where she first began defining and honoring her traditional Country roots. She then went on to land a major touring role with Kidz Bop at the age of 12. Combining her touring experience with her love of traditional Country music gave way to a once-in-a-lifetime album, with duets featuring Country music legends like Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, and much more, all before the age of 18.
In 2016, America embraced her on the #1 rated TV show in the country, The Voice. Her blind audition garnered her a 4-chair turn singing Country’s iconic “Where The Boys Are” by Connie Francis - a tune that continues to garner standing ovations and whispers of the greatness of her mentors, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, and the likes of Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert. She quickly advanced onto Team Blake.
Her undeniable talent and infectious spirit have since kept her in the spotlight. Since finishing 5th on of The Voice (Season 10) and serving as The Kohl’s Greenroom Host (Season 11), the Texas ingénue’s opportunities have only expanded coming off the show to include her Grand Ole Opry debut, Ryman stage appearances touring across the United States and hosting Radio Disney's red carpet coverage for the CMA Awards. She has graced the iconic stage of the Opry a total of 5 times since.
Getting back to Mary Sarah's releases a Christmas version of 'Take Me Home, Country Roads', Mary Sarah states warmly, "I hope this version brings joy and love, and I hope everyone gets to be with their loved ones this year!”
