Take a “Sleigh Ride” With Runaway June on New Holiday EP, “When I Think About Christmas”

Runaway June released a new holiday EP, When I Think About Christmas, on Oct. 16.

The five-song EP features three holiday standards, “Sleigh Ride,” “O Holy Night” and “Let It Snow,” as well as two original tunes, “Christmas on the Radio” and the title track.

“Our new Christmas EP, When I Think About Christmas, has all of these beautiful mountain Appalachian sounds,” says the trio in a release. “So we put our own little spin on Christmas music, and we’ve got some fiddle, so why not.”

Penned by Leroy Anderson and Mitchell Parish, “Sleigh Ride” is a holiday favorite that’s been covered by Johnny Mathis, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Grant and more.

Listen to Runaway June sing “Sleigh Ride” below.

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!”
