Local songwriter featured in new Christmas album

<img src="/images/Article/7270.jpg">

The songwriting career of George Meissner of Maple Lake is continuing its upward climb with the inclusion of a song he wrote on a CD of Christmas music produced by a California recording studio.
Meissner moved to the Maple Lake area from Golden Valley in 1984 and retired from a long career in the insurance industry in 1997. He began a second career as a singer and songwriter because he loved writing and performing. Having his songs included on nationally distributed recordings has been an unexpected bonus.
“I don’t know where this is going, but there is still life after retirement,” Meissner laughed. “Life can begin again at age 60, 70, or 75.”
“The Gift of Christmas” includes 27 songs produced by HillTop Records in Hollywood, CA. Meissner’s song, “Shining Star,” a Christmas love song, is the first track on the CD and was performed by professional vocalist Cody Lyons.
