Chris Janson just dropped the video for his first ever Christmas song, “It Is Christmas,” which has the singer celebrating the holiday at a white piano and features shots of his real family, including his kids and their friends.
The song is an ode to a good old traditional holiday with family and friends, with Chris telling CMT, “That’s all I’ve ever loved. I don’t love kitsch in anything, in any format of life but I love real and just things that make you feel something.”
Chris said he wrote the song three years ago, but it wasn’t until now that he decided it was the right time to record it. One thing that was very important to him was the song’s arrangement. “When we wrote it I wanted a spoken word kind of thing, to me that’s what Christmas is,” he said. “Unless you can do it as good as Mariah Carey, I just don’t think you have any business doing it.” Check out the video to the right.
