Wade Bowen Announces New Christmas Album, “Twelve Twenty-Five”

Texas country mainstay Wade Bowen will release his first holiday album, Twelve Twenty-Five, on Nov. 8.

The 13-song offering features a number of holiday classics, including “O Holy Night” and “Silent Night,” as well as renditions of Wham!’s “Last Christmas” and Maria Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas,” which you can listen to below.

Wade also pays homage to his country heroes with covers of Dolly Parton’s “Once Upon A Christmas” and Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December,” which features Cody Canada.

“Christmas has always been the most personal of holidays, with its combination of faith and family,” says Wade. “That was true for me while growing up and it’s still true for me today, albeit in a completely different way. As a husband and father who spends so much time traveling the world playing music, I love the feeling the Christmas season brings to my life. And I recognize how quickly time passes and how each Christmas is unique and fleeting. With my family, I try to keep the best parts of the warm, magical, small-town vibe that my parents gave me while growing up in Waco.”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
