Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn Share ‘Christmas Time’s A Coming (And I Know I’m Staying Home)’
Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn shared an updated cover of “Christmas Time’s A Coming (And I Know I’m Staying Home).” The seasonal recording was released in support of the Direct Relief humanitarian aid organization.
“Christmas Time’s A Coming” was originally written by Tex Logan and recorded by Bill Monroe in 1951. Fleck and Washburn recorded their updated double-banjo version of the bluegrass song at their home in Nashville and added the 2020-appropriate lyrics, “and I know I’m staying home.” A message from Fleck and Washburn stated the couple shared the track, “to bring a little cheer, acceptance, and to shine a light on Direct Relief.”
