What could be the most heartfelt, filled with the warmth of home, the love of family, and the joy of the holiday season, than receiving a special gift from your close family but if this gift is part of your family heritage then it becomes something much more. It becomes a continuing story of something that connects us throughout our lives and it is meant to be passed along to future generations.

This Christmas Carol Ann Wood of Born To Fly shares her personal story through a new hit song My Daddy's Gibson which paints a picture of Carol's life and the stories her mother told about meeting Carol's father, her great love for her new husband and how much she wanted to surprise him on their first married Christmas together with a beautiful Gibson that she'd seen in town.

Her mother really was pregnant and working at a peach cannery in Selah, WA. The song goes on to include many things Carol remembered about her family growing up.

"We really were 5 sisters and 1 brother, we really did all work in our huge garden every summer, snapping beans, feeling in the dirt for potatoes, pitting gallons of cherries, canning cucumbers... and my dad was a good mechanic and did fix all of our cars after a long, hard day of work. My father really was a great musician, too. He could play anything with strings on it and had a beautiful, pure, high, lonesome tenor voice that I loved to hear. I really did see his old, beautiful guitar in a closet at my mom's house in a dilapidated case, and asked if I could take it home and play it and love on it and she really did say yes, much to my disbelief. I took it to a renowned luthier for some TLC and started playing it for our special live performances."  Carol remembers, "I really can still hear him play when I pick up his guitar and my momma really does miss him every day."

The song is reaching now close to 100K views on YouTube! Check it out here:
