He may not be coming this year! According to this song we just finished recording, Santa is too stressed out to do his Christmas Eve duty!
Santa Is Going On Strike: a light hearted, fun song aimed at country radio with a “pull-’em-out-of-their-seats” dance groove and some “bro-country rap/hip hop” sections program directors should consider adding to their playlist.
Are you a recording artist? You might wish to add “Santa” to your upcoming Christmas album. (If you haven’t recorded a Christmas album yet, stay in the business long enough and you will, you WILL!).
Take a listen to this clip:
The full version has two sections where it deviates from the Blake Sheltonish “All About Tonight” country rhythm: one section is pure rap, the second, hip hop style.
