“This project is a very meaningful one as Christmas is one of the most special times for us as a family,” explains band frontrunner Ty Hunter. “From mom’s cinnamon buns, to the chocolate fondue, candlelight service, and the general presence of joy and support of loved ones, it always seemed to have such a special magic in the air. We wanted to capture that feeling on this record, and ultimately sing about what is most meaningful to us. We are so grateful for our Saviour who came to provide hope to the world many years ago, and for the ability to sing about His love this season.”
The group announced the release and pre-order on October 6 – fans received instant gratification track “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” upon purchase. Listeners can look forward to originals “What I See” (co-written with their producer Seth Mosley and Open Road labelmate Dustin Bird) and “Christmas is Coming Again,” co-written by the brothers and Mosley.
