Skip Ewing is celebrating the holidays this year with a brand new collection of original holiday songs and rearranged classics on Skip Ewing — Christmas, due out Nov. 12.
Produced by Kyle Lehning and Ewing, the tribute to the winter holidays mixes seasonal cheer with Ewing’s songwriting chops on seven tracks that include piano ballads (“Whenever a Child is Born”), love songs (“Mr. Snowman”), an inventive take on “’Twas The Night Before Christmas” titled “Better Watch Out,” and more.
On “I’ll Be Home (An American Christmas),” Ewing honors the country’s military families by intermingling the bittersweet “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” with the patriotic “America the Beautiful.” The album also celebrates Christmas’ spiritual side with “Just A Kid,” another Ewing original recorded years earlier by Kenny Chesney.
“Christmastime is musically rich,” says Ewing. “I feel fortunate and privileged to be able to record a Christmas album to offer new music that we also hope is musically rich. I want to make music that is lasting and meaningful and be able to do that until I can’t do it anymore.”
Throughout his career, Ewing has penned No. 1 smashes like Brian White’s “I’m Not Supposed to Love You Anymore,” Diamond Rio’s “I Believe,” Kenny Chesney’s “You Had Me From Hello,” and Collin Raye’s “Love, Me,” in addition to pursuing his own career as an artist.
