The sounds of the season, with a twist.

Jay and Vicki Perdue know a thing or two about music. The Amarillo natives have owned a recording studio for years, and now with Jay playing the hammered duclimer and Vicki on flute, the couple is using the sounds of the season to help those in need.

"We totally funded the album. Totally paid for it. We paid for all the CD's and everything. So that every dime of the sales of this album can go to whatever we want to benefit," Jay said.

This is the second year the Perdue's have sold their Christmas album. Last year, they gave the funds to an outreach program in Tennessee, along with several churches and the Untied Way. This year, the Perdues chose to help out the local Salvation Army.

You can pick up the CD's at the Salvation Army for $20, and all the money stays there.

"We because, we know that they are hurting this year because of the weather, and they're such a great organization they help so many people," Vicki said. 

But it's not your typical christmas album.

The Perdues recorded the album in a Tennesee church last year, and and they had some impressive help.

"Willie Nelson's head recording engineer of eighteen years is friend of mine. He has like a hundred and fifty six billboard hits to his credit , and he recorded the album for us," Jay said. 

"The acoustics in the room are just phenomenal," Vicki said. 

The sounds of the season, helping spread the message of the season and giving back to those in need.
