While it may seem strange to get into the holiday spirit while pumpkins are still on your front porch, it was even stranger for the group to record the album this past summer, when Nashville felt like an oven! "It is always weird to be in the studio working on Christmas music in June and July, so we decorated the entire studio," Dave recalls. "We brought out lights, fake trees and decorated the place to get in the Christmas spirit. You'd leave the studio, and it'd be 100 degrees out in Nashville, but nonetheless, a great experience."
While it was 100 degrees in Nashville, Dave and his bandmates had visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. In celebration of their new holiday album, they sat down to talk about their ideas for the perfect winter's night. Watch the exclusive video interview below.
