This post was originally posted on Idol Forum and I asked Maribeth for permission to re-post it here.  I love the song Christmas In Heaven and I know this song is a favorite of a lot of Scotty's fans, so I thought it would be nice to share a little bit about the one of the writers of the song.  Donna

Hello Everyone,

My name is Maribeth Johnson. I am the wife of Jeremy Johnson, who is a co-writer of the song "Christmas in Heaven" off of Scotty's CWSM record.

I wanted to share this video with you guys to give you a little back story about what was going on in our lives last year while this song was released. (Christmas in Heaven segment is at around 6:00)

When we read Scotty's press release about the album and saw where we quoted that "Christmas in Heaven was one of his favorite songs on the record", we were thrilled over the moon! However, it was also the same day we got the devastating news that our baby girl that we were pregnant with at the time had a rare genetic disorder and only a 5% chance of survival. She made it 37 weeks but passed away in utero just 2 weeks shy of her delivery date.

Christmas in Heaven has a whole new meaning to us now as this will be our daughter Abbie Ann's first Christmas in Heaven. I have been following these boards for a while now but decided to speak up because I wanted you all to know what an integral part Scotty and his recording of CIH played during one of the most devastating times of our lives.

Blessings to you all and I pray that this message will bring you hope and encouragement. I am so honored to have also had the opportunity to record "Christmas in Heaven" from a mama's heart and if you are interested in that version you can check it out here:

Merry Christmas and blessings to you all!
