Maddie And Tae We Need Christmas

Maddie and Tae’s holiday project, “We Need Christmas” is available now, October 23rd

Maddie and Tae’s Christmas six-song project, We Need Christmas, is here and will instantly put you in the holiday spirit. And boy, after the year we’ve all had, we need it.

While covering the classics “This Christmas”, “Holly Jolly Christmas”, “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” the duo not only showcases their originality but their harmonizing talent. Their slowed-down version of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”, is nothing like we’ve ever heard before. With just a guitar and their powerful vocals, it’s a beautiful and emotional rendition that everyone needs to hear.

“Merry Married Christmas” is the first of two original songs on the project. Written by both girls along with Tae’s husband, Josh Kerr, this song is the perfect holiday love song. No matter if you’re newlyweds or been married for fifty years, spending quality time with your significant other during the holidays is the best gift there is.

The title track, “We Need Christmas”, finishes out the album and will certainly become a classic. Written again by the duo Maddie & Tae along with Matthew West and AJ Pruis, this song is the perfect reminder of why the holidays are such a special time. There’s nothing like traveling back home to spend time with your loved ones enjoying your favorite traditions such as watching your favorite holiday specials. This year has been hard on everyone and this track gives us hope that the Christmas season will bring us the love and sense of togetherness we all need going into 2021.

“This world can use a little healing // Our hearts can surely use something to believe in // We need Christmas // Now more than ever bring us together”

In a recent press release, the award-winning duo shared what this project means to them. “We are so proud of this project and we loved recreating some of our favorite Christmas classics as well as writing some of our own. Making We Need Christmas was such a bright spot for us this year and we hope this project brings a little joy and peace to our fans during this difficult year.”

Maddie and Tae’s Christmas album is a special one and will certainly be on repeat all season long.
