UMG Nashville To Release ‘Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas’ on October 29
Universal Music Group Nashville will be releasing the album, Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, on October 29. The Robertsons, Louisiana’s bearded, camouflage-clad entrepreneurial family, not only run the multi-million dollar Duck Commander Sporting Empire but are also a talented musical family. Growing up singing in church, the Robertsons will be showcasing their talents, as well as their special brand of Southern down-home sense of humor, on Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas. Produced by Buddy Cannon, the Christmas album will feature performances by the Robertson family and soon to be announced special guests.
“Faith, family and ducks – in that order – have always been our priorities,” explains Willie Robertson, CEO of Duck Commander and star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty. “Christmas is an important holiday for us not only because of our strong faith but also our holiday family traditions. We’re having a great time making this album. We hope you enjoy it.”
The Robertsons, Louisiana’s favorite first family, don’t live in the governor’s mansion but in the backwoods, where their rags-to-riches story is still unfolding. A homegrown mom-and-pop operation, Duck Commander has become a sporting empire by fabricating top-of-the-line duck calls and decoys out of salvaged swamp wood. It’s also expanded into a line of products that includes hunting apparel, cooking products, DVDs, CDs and novelty items all bearing their brand. In 2012 A&E premiered “Duck Dynasty,” which features the lives of the Robertson family and their booming family business.
