The album was produced by Tommy Emmanuel, engineered and mastered by Marc DeSisto, mixed by Brad Benge and Tommy Emmanuel, with Brian Penix as Executive Producer. See the full track listing below.

“When I listen to this recording, I hear the joy, soul and fun we had at that show,” says TOMMY. “Christmas music is so joyous to me and I feel we rose to the occasion that night.”

ABOUT TOMMY EMMANUEL:

TOMMY EMMANUEL has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a CPG (Certified Guitar Player) by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. He’s piled up numerous accolades, including two Grammy Award nominationstwo ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association (the Aussie equivalent of the Recording Academy); repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll including a cover story for their August 2017 issue; a cover feature for Vintage Guitar’s July 2020 issue; and was Music Radar’s reader’s poll #1 winner of the Ten Best Acoustic Guitarists in The World (December 2019). A noted fingerstyle guitarist, EMMANUEL frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but EMMANUEL never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. That leaves him open to those technical imperfections, though they also provide some of the humanity to an other-worldly talent. On May 8, 2020, he released a newly recorded career-spanning double album, THE BEST OF TOMMYSONGS, via CGP Sounds/Cruzen Street Records).

TOMMY EMMANUEL, the acclaimed and Grammy-nominated acoustic guitarist, singer and songwriter, has today (October 9) released a newly recorded acoustic instrumental of John Lennon’s classic “Imagine” as a limited edition 7-inch vinyl single exclusive for independent retail on November 13 in the U.S. and December 18 internationally. A video for the Nashville-based artist’s stirring version of “Imagine” has also been released today, the same day Lennon would have been 80 years old. Watch the video–filmed in Nashville at Tunesmith Studios and directed by Joshua Britt and Neilson Hubbard for Neighborhoods Apart—here:

“I want to say a big thank you and a big Happy Birthday to John Lennon,” says EMMANUEL. “Thank you John for all your mojo, for all your music and all the great memories that you’ve left us. To celebrate your birthday, I have recorded my version of “Imagine” and it’s only coming out on record. It’s gonna be a 7” vinyl and it’ll be available at your record store. So support your local record store because in these hard times, everybody needs to help each other. If you love John Lennon, like most of us do, and if you love the song “Imagine”—one of the greatest songs of peace ever written, then please go and get my version of ‘Imagine’ and play it for your children. Lots of Love.”

TOMMY recorded “Imagine” on March 5, 2020 in Nashville at Tunesmith Studios right before the pandemic set in. It was produced by Tommy Emmanuel, engineered by Brad Benge, mixed by Brad Benge & Tommy Emmanuel and mastered by Marc DeSisto. “Imagine,” an exclusive release to record stores for 2020, is being issued on Tommy’s label, CGP Sounds (ironically the catalog number is #9).  Only 1,000 copies of the vinyl single are being produced and each one is numbered. The B-side is a Tommy Emmanuel original song, “Since We Met,” that has never appeared on vinyl.

In other TOMMY news, he’ll perform two live-stream concerts on Saturday, November 7. For the first show, at 3:00 PM, he’ll play highlights from his It’s Never Too Late album along with other fan favorites and at the 8:00 PM show, he’ll visit highlights from his Endless Road album along with other fan favorites. For these two live-streams, TOMMY has partnered with Topeka Live to bring a front row concert experience to the audience: he’ll perform in front of giant video monitors where he can see the audience and they’ll be able to see him (they can clap in between songs and he will hear and interact with them).

This August, TOMMY EMMANUEL, the acclaimed and Grammy-nominated acoustic guitarist, singer and songwriter, will host two live stream events with a portion of the proceeds benefiting two prominent independent venues in America. “Without some support, we are in danger of losing some of the independent venues that are a part of our culture and our local communities,” says TOMMY.
 
The first event, Saturday, August 15 at 8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT, will benefit The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, with Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley supporting. The second event, Saturday, August 29, at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT, will benefit The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, CA, with Andy McKee supporting. The Coach House is notably where Chet Atkins, legendary music icon and TOMMY’s idol, performed many times. TOMMY is one of five artists ever named a Certified Guitar Player by Atkins. Tickets are on sale now ($15 advance/$20 day of show): https://store.tommyemmanuel.com/
 
For both events, TOMMY will be performing live from Tunesmith Studio outside of Nashville. See the quotes below from TOMMYMichael Jaworek of The BirchmereGary Folgner of The Coach House and TOMMY‘s agent, Brian Jonas with High Road Touring, who booked both events.
 
TOMMY EMMANUEL: “Without some support, we are in danger of losing some of the independent venues that are a part of our culture and our local communities. Most people don’t realize how many people the touring industry supports. It’s so much more than an artist onstage. In the venues alone, there are stagehands, security guards, concession staff, box office staff, ushers, runners, medical staff, merchandise sellers, custodial staff, and much more. There’s also the artist’s agent, manager, and crew who are not really seeing much income right now either. When this pandemic started, music venues were one of the first to close, and they will most likely be one of the last to reopen. When we do get back to touring, I want to make sure some of these places are still around for me to play, so I’ve tried to figure out a way to help these independent venues, especially the ones that have supported me throughout the years. We also wanted to create some sort of normality to the industry right now. That’s why we are going to have opening acts on these live streams and that I’m going to pay my team just like any other show. It takes a team to make it all happen, and it’s going to take a whole lot of teamwork and community support to get through this pandemic. I hope other artists can help whoever needs it in their own respective communities.”
 
Michael Jaworek of The Birchmere: “The Birchmere is honored to be the first venue to have Tommy Emmanuel do a streaming concert for us. Tommy has been one of our favorite and most valued artists to perform at the club in its 54-year existence. Tommy’s musical prowess as performer and composer is only exceeded by his kind and generous spirit. He brings that to our stage and audiences, every time he is here. Though we may not be together in body for this special show, we are certainly together again in spirit; now and for the future.”
 
Gary Folgner (founder and owner for past 40 years) of The Coach House: “We love having Tommy Emmanuel at The Coach House. Until the next time that will be, we are excited to announce he is performing from home to fans everywhere. In these unprecedented times it’s comforting to have a friend like Tommy who’s using his time and talent to help support our venue.”
 
Brian Jonas with High Road Touring: “Tommy Emmanuel is the epitome of the working musician. He has built an incredible touring career by not only creating lasting relationships with his fans but also all the promoters and venues who have supported him over the years. Tommy is always thinking big picture. It comes as no surprise to me that he understands and values the role that independent venues play in the live music ecosystem and how important they are not only to his own touring career but to the communities they exist in as a whole.”

TOMMY EMMANUEL, the acclaimed and Grammy-nominated acoustic guitarist, singer and songwriter, will release a newly recorded career-spanning double album on May 8, THE BEST OF TOMMYSONGS, via CGP Sounds/Cruzen Street Records. TOMMY has already shared the video for the album’s first single, Fuel,” available this Friday, March 6. Guitar Player magazine premiered the “Fuel” video this past Wednesday.
 
Joshua Britt and Neilson Hubbard with Neighborhoods Apart Productions directed and edited the “Fuel” video, which was shot in a rural old home in Franklin, KY. Some of the footage was shot with TOMMY‘s own I-Phone as he was traveling throughout Asia. Says TOMMY about writing the song:
 
“I boarded a train in Paris, France to ride the rails to Cologne, Germany. Looking out the window, I saw a billboard for ‘Harry Potter World,’ that set me in motion. I got my guitar out and started looking for cinematic chords and ideas. Three hours later, I had the entire song written and was practicing it up. I had no title at that stage and when I played it for a friend he asked “what’s fueling this emotion?” Immediately I reacted, “You just gave me the title, ‘Fuel’! Even though there’s time changes and odd bars in the song, you can actually tap time straight through it. In my own way, this is a small attempt at paying homage to Mason Williams, the brilliant composer of ‘Classical Gas.'”
 
THE BEST OF TOMMYSONGS is a double album that features some of Tommy Emmanuel’s best original songs. Emmanuel solely wrote, produced, and recorded all the tracks on this record. Emmanuel has been playing some of these songs for over 30 years, and they have evolved over time. He wanted to rerecord them to suite the modern arrangements and to make them sound bigger than ever.

ABOUT TOMMY EMMANUEL:
TOMMY EMMANUEL has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. He’s piled up numerous accolades, including two Grammy Award nominationstwo ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association (the Aussie equivalent of the Recording Academy) and repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll including a cover story for their August 2017 issue. A noted fingerstyle guitarist, EMMANUEL frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but EMMANUEL never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. That leaves him open to those technical imperfections, though they also provide some of the humanity to an other-worldly talent.

THE DOCUMENTARY FILM ‘TOMMY EMMANUEL-THE ENDLESS ROAD’
TO HAVE ITS U.S. PREMIERE AT THE 50TH NASHVILLE FILM FESTIVAL
OCTOBER 5 WITH TOMMY EMMANUEL AND THE FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE
 
ESTEEMED GUITARIST AND COMPOSER TO TOUR
THROUGHOUT 2019 AND INTO 2020
 
 
“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.”
Jason Isbell
 
“Tommy is one of the most musically welcoming artists I know!”
Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane)
 
TOMMY EMMANUEL is the esteemed Grammy-nominated guitarist, composer, prolific recording artist and performer whose must-see shows all over the world combine virtuosity with his engaging storytelling wit. The fascinating story behind the musician and the man is now told in the documentary film Tommy Emmanuel-The Endless Road, directed by Jeremy Dylan and produced by Jaime Lewis.
 
The documentary will have its U.S. premiere at the 50th Nashville Film Festival which takes place October 3-12. The film’s premiere is set for Saturday October 5 at 3:00 PM with TOMMY and the filmmakers in attendance, followed by a Q&A. An encore screening of the film will be on Monday October 7 at 1:00 PM.   It will be screening at Regal Hollywood Theaters, 719 Thompson Lane – Nashville, TN 37204. Tickets are available here. Watch a trailer for the film here.
 
This past July, Tommy Emmanuel-The Endless Road had its world premiere at Australia‘s Melbourne Film Festival where it won Best Music Documentary.” Says TOMMY: “It’s very appropriate that the film has its US debut in Nashville because Nashville has been a big part of my life, not just musically but I have so many friends here and so many influences, it’s a great city.”
 
“The journey of Tommy Emmanuel is a quintessentially Nashville story,” says director Jeremy Dylan. “Tommy’s relationship with mentor, surrogate father and ‘Mayor of Music City’ Chet Atkins is an emotional backbone of the film, Nashville is the refuge that turns into a home as Tommy’s marriage crumbles and he is forced rebuild his life and the climax of the film as a scorching performance at the Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman.” 
 
Tommy Emmanuel-The Endless Road is the story of guitar icon TOMMY EMMANUEL, whose journey takes him from Australia’s youngest guitar prodigy to the world’s most acclaimed acoustic guitarist. Revelations about the father he idolized send TOMMY into a decades-long battle with addiction, which threatens to derail his family and career, even as he drives himself to become one of the world’s most compelling performers.

His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but EMMANUEL never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. That leaves him open to those technical imperfections, though they also provide some of the humanity to an other-worldly talent.
