As we get closer and closer to Christmas, we will all take in a number of Christmas movies and hear several versions of Christmas classics. However, Dan + Shay’s version of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” From the “CMA Country Christmas” special is one we can really get behind.
What starts off as a slow ballad, gets a little spruce as the melody is picked up during the first verse. Add to that, Shay Mooney’s stunning vocals and there’s nowhere else we’d rather be. Decked out in stylish suites, the guys are backed by the house band as Christmas trees light up the set.
Dan + Shay took part in “CMA Country Christmas,” which aired on Dec. 10. Hosted by Reba McEntire, the event saw performances of Christmas classics by Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Diana Krall, Dustin Lynch, Martina McBride, Old Dominion, Brad Paisley, Michael W. Smith, Lindsey Stirling, The Isaacs and Brett Young.
As the holiday approaches and you find yourself needing tidings of comfort and joy, just sit back, turn up the volume and enjoy!
