It can be especially annoying in the country world where every mainstream bro tries to release their own version of the classics, but they all end up sounding the same, and boring, and nobody really cares about it.
That’s not what this post is about.
This is about Wade Bowen releasing a knockout cover of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Seriously, it’s damn good.
“Christmas has always been the most personal of holidays, with its combination of faith and family,” says Bowen. “That was true for me while growing up and it’s still true for me today, albeit in a completely different way. As a husband and father who spends so much time traveling the world playing music, I love the feeling the Christmas season brings to my life. And I recognize how quickly time passes and how each Christmas is unique and fleeting. With my family, I try to keep the best parts of the warm, magical, small-town vibe that my parents gave me while growing up in Waco.”
