For most of us, winter has arrived and what a better way to warm up to and enjoy the holiday season than by listening to the dynamic country music artist, with a powerhouse voice, Nicole Rayy’s first-ever Christmas EP A Merry Little Christmas. This EP features the classics “Run Run Rudolph” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” Then, Rayy teamed up with Graham Scott Fleming to write and record her own original track “Tailgate Christmas” to round out the album. It’s available for streaming everywhere now.
This is what Rayy has to say about her EP,
“Back in December 2017, I started a series on Facebook called Countdown to Christmas where I would cover Christmas songs leading up to Christmas day. Ever since then my fans have been asking for my Christmas album and I am so excited to say it is finally here. A Merry Little Christmas gives you a taste of some of my absolute favourite Christmas songs, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Run Run Rudolph” along with what I hope is your new favourite country Christmas song, “Tailgate Christmas,” a duet with my talented friend Graham Scott Fleming.”
Creating a track that is reminiscent of a Kenny and Dolly duet, Rayy continues,
““Tailgate Christmas” is such a fun country Christmas duet that I wrote with Graham Scott Fleming and producer Douglas Romanow. I’ve always wanted to record a duet and to do it with someone as vocally talented as Graham just makes this track extra special. This song is the perfect blend of country and holiday and even has a little nod to the queen, Shania Twain. I hope you love it as much as I do and that “Tailgate Christmas” becomes your new favourite holiday classic!”

Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
