Christmas is my favorite time of year. It’s Jesus’ birthday, a time for family get-togethers and a time for giving — which is the one of the best feelings of all!

I thoroughly enjoyed working in the studio with my band and crew - who also happen to be my best friends.

There’s a special feeling that goes with Christmas. I got that special feeling with this album.

We hope you feel it too!
