LIZZIE CATES - CHRISTMAS EVE
Rising Nashville recording artist, Lizzie Cates, writes her very first Christmas song, titled, “Christmas Eve.” A song in which the main character spent the past Christmas falling in love, only to find herself the following year empty handed and heart broken. But, with the chorus providing a glimmer of hope in the closing lines, “I still believe in you and me just like I still believe in Christmas Eve,” gives the listener an opportunity to create their own magical or perhaps standstill ending. The song’s sound is full, and warm, with acoustic guitars, mandolin, sleigh bells, and the build of an orchestra in the last half of the song gives it that, “grand” finale feel.

About Lizzie Cates "I just want to make someone feel less alone with my music” Lizzie Cates grew up in Reno, Nevada, and it was early on at the age of 5 where songwriting sparked interest after creating her own fairy tales and nursery rhymes; and by 13,she had her first guitar. Lizzie’s ability to tell a story is endless, and after receiving an ISSA Award for her breakout song “Strangers” in 2017, she moved to Nashville to
continue her craft. Shortly after arriving, she began writing with notable writers and playing iconic venues such as The Bluebird Cafe.
Her voice is often compared to pop icon Taylor Swift, with hints of The Chicks' Natalie Maines and Kelsea Ballerini, and when she plays live, it’s her catchy hooks, silly personality and her natural ability to bring love and energy that keeps fans coming back. Lizzie released her first EP titled “Such A Mess” in April of 2019, a record that explores her direction as an artist, and vulnerability in a new city; and most recently, she’s been in the studio working on her next project, and is excited to share new music soon.
