Charles said the covers on the deluxe edition met their requirement of being a little different. Charles explained further, “Anybody that has our Christmas record, you know there’s a lot of very family Christmas songs, and we wanted to find a couple that were familiar but there hasn’t been a ton of covers of, you know, and there really hasn’t been that many covers of ‘Little Saint Nick’ or Paul McCartney’s much at all so we thought that’d be kind of different and unique.”

Lady A’s latest single, “Champagne Night,” sits in the Top 15 and climbing on the country charts. Watch the video below!
