Watch Chris Stapleton’s Promo for New Holiday Album, “A Very Covid Christmas,” From “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Chris Stapleton will release his new studio album, Starting Over, on Nov. 13, but did you know he also has a new holiday album in the works? Neither did we, until we saw Chris’ promo for A Very Covid Christmas: Holiday Songs for a Pandemic on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Nov. 11.

Of course, the promo was in jest as host Jimmy introduced the clip by referencing the fact that the CMA Awards had to cancel appearances by Lee Brice, Florida Georgia Line, Lady A and Rascal Flatts due to Covid.

“Usually when this many people get sick in Tennessee, it means they under-cooked the squirrel,” said Jimmy.

Chris’ yuletide offering includes sure-to-be classics like “Vaccine Navidad,” “Grandma Got Corona From a Reindeer,” “Fauci the Snowman” and more.

Watch Chris’ new promo below.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
