Producer Robby Turner stated, “Bobby Helms “Jingle Bell Rock (Special Nashville Edition)” is a true Christmas tradition and the energy displayed within these 10 tracks brings the excitement, along with the beauty of the Christmas season. It was an honor to work on this great project and to work in depth with one of my favorite men in the record business, Thomas Gramuglia, along with his great staff at Country Rewind Records.”
The tracks on this album were originally recorded in the early 1980s at Doc’s Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, and were produced by Charlie Ammerman, who at the time was also Helms’ manager. Ammerman is a veteran Nashville producer who headed up his Pretty World Records for around forty years.
“I had the pleasure of managing and producing Bobby for years,'' shared Charlie Ammerman. “He was a great person' and one of my best friends. He never realized the star he was, always real.”
In 2018, those original recordings were brought to Grammy-winning producer Robby Turner who worked with artists such as Bob Dylan, Waylon Jennings, Frank Sinatra, Loretta Lynn and Chris Stapleton. Turner updated the original tracks bringing the audio quality up to twenty-ﬁrst century standards.
As long as there’s Christmas and Christmas music, Bobby will be with us every Holiday season with the sound of “Jingle Bell Rock.”
