O'Connor says, "Appalachia is the original melting pot of our country featuring more diverse styles of American music than just about anywhere. This theme makes for what is a trilogy of my "Appalachia" recordings now, 'Appalachia Waltz, 'Appalachian Journey' and 'An Appalachian Christmas.' My album features 11 Christmas tracks, as well as several Appalachian-themed songs and offering a new version of 'Appalachia Waltz' itself with classical guitarist Sharon Isbin, one of my most well-known pieces. 

A few of my favorite Christmas centerpieces for the album include Renee Fleming's soprano embraced by a mountain orchestra and fiddle solo, as well as the jazzy style of Jane Monheit with an all acoustic string band. "Growing up in the O'Connor musical household, Christmas time was a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols, fiddling, bluegrass and other traditional American music. And that is the spirit of 'An Appalachian Christmas.'"
