Influenced by her parents love of the crooners and the lush harmonies of the Andrew and McGuire sisters, as well as her own addiction to rock 'n' roll of the 70s-90s, and a later-blooming love for the story-song prose of country music, it's no wonder her songs have elements of all three genres.

Biography

Influenced by her parents love of the crooners and the lush harmonies of the Andrew and McGuire sisters, as well as her own addiction to rock 'n' roll of the 70s-90s, and a later-blooming love for the story-song prose of country music, it's no wonder her songs have elements of all three genres. LaLa's love for music started young with time spent in her room recording a vocal on one tape recorder and stacking harmonies by singing live with the original vocal into another tape recorder. That love for music took her to Nashville at the age of 18 to attend the prestigious music school, Belmont University, where she acquired a degree in Music Business. Sidetracked by a career in journalism, LaLa eventually found her way back to her first love… music. Now she spends her days writing and recording not only her own music, but has a successful career as a live and session background vocalist and demo singer.

“Music has always been a huge part of my life for as far back as I can remember. I’ve been singing since I was 2. I always wore my heart and my emotions on my sleeve until I figured out that I could put them into song instead. Music is therapy, and not just for me as a writer, but for the listener who can connect with the emotion or experience coming through in the song. So many songwriters have touched me through their music without ever knowing me, and that’s powerful! A song can lift you up, make you cry, take you someplace you've never been or back to a time or place you never thought you'd remember. I'm so thankful for the privilege to share mine with you. Thanks for listening.” - LaLa Deaton

PICTURE PERFECT CHRISTMAS (DEATON, NORRIS)

(MERRY MERRY MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS)

MR. SNOWMAN BACK IN TOWN,
BROUGHT THE WEATHER BACK AROUND
TIME TO LIGHT UP THE TREE IN OUR SMALL TOWN SQUARE
IT'S A PICTURE PERFECT CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR

STRINGS OF COLOR, HEARTS AGLOW,
ALL THE FAMILY GATHERED HOME
FROZEN LITTLE NOSES, WISH ROCKWELL WERE HERE
IT'S A PICTURE PERFECT CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR

TOWN FOLKS CAROLING, SLEIGHBELL'S RINGING,
CLYDESDALE'S WALTZING, A CHILD BELIEVING
SANTA'S COMING, HURRY HOME,
LITTLE DREAMERS AWAIT THE MORN

(VERSE INSTRUMENTAL)

TOWN FOLKS CAROLING, SLEIGHBELL'S RINGING,
CLYDESDALE'S WALTZING, A CHILD BELIEVING
SANTA'S COMING, HURRY HOME,
LITTLE DREAMERS AWAIT THE MORN

THE SUN IS SLEEPING, THE STARS AWAKE,
THE MOON, A CANVAS, FOR SANTA'S SLEIGH
A BAG FULL OF WISHES FLY THROUGH THE AIR
IT'S A PICTURE PERFECT CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR

TIS THE SEASON GOOD TIDINGS AND CHEER
IT’S A PICTURE PERFECT CHRISTMAS
A PICTURE PERFECT CHRISTMAS
A PICTURE PERFECT CHRISTMAS… THIS YEAR

MERRY MERRY MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS, MERRY CHRISTMAS
