I have already posted this video on my facebook, but I want to put it here too! This song is from the new Dave Barnes Christmas cd, "A Very Merry Christmas." You can check it out here. You can also buy the cd on Itunes, but then you don't get a hard copy, and I am one of those people who really enjoys a hard copy.
Anyway, it's no secret that I absolutely adore all things Christmas, with Christmas music being near the top of the list. I have already started listening to Christmas music. Then this cd came out. And I am in love. Seriously. It is at least in my top 3 of Christmas cds. (By the way, "Charlie Brown Christmas" by the Vince Guardi Trio is also in the top 3, and I won't disclose the 3rd for fear of complete humiliation).
My favorite songs so far are "Christmas Tonight" (which if you watch the video, you will fall utterly in love with as well...it is just too cute!), "Family Tree" (which made me cry on the bus...how embarrassing!), and his version of "I'll Be Home for Christmas." Although he really gives Mariah Carey a run for her money in "All I Want for Christmas."
Plus, let's not forget that Dave is a Mississippi boy, which warrants some love right there.
So watch this video. You will love it. I promise.
Then go buy the cd. It is amazing.
