Country Music Hall of Fame members, The Oak Ridge Boys, released a new video today for “Don’t Go Pullin’ On Santa Claus’ Beard,” the second song from their 8th holiday themed album, Down Home Christmas, from Lightning Rod Records/Thirty Tigers and is available now everywhere music is sold.
The video which features a cameo appearance by the album’s Producer, Dave Cobb, marking the 3rd collaboration between the famed Nashville hit-maker and country music’s all-time greatest vocal quartet.
“We told songwriter Aaron Raitiere that we needed a fun Santa song, and almost immediately he and Anderson East wrote ‘Don’t Go Pullin’ On Santa Claus Beard,’” said singer, Joe Bonsall. “Aaron wrote or co-wrote six songs on Down Home Christmas and it was like old Nashville again. Writers would bring us a song and we would record it while they wrote another one. It was all magic and our producer Dave Cobb led us all the way! Quality songwriters writing great songs. It was all really fun! This song is now one of the highlights in our Christmas tour.”
Down Home Christmas also includes standards such as “Amazing Grace” and “Silent Night,” plus new originals like “South Alabama Christmas,” written by Jamey Johnson, Bill Anderson and Buddy Cannon.
