In His Own Words: “This album is for the people who really love the holidays and what feelings they bring. For the families that get together and love a good time. He went on to say, "I wanted to remember every joyful, wholesome, tender, raw moment you feel during the holidays. I feel like some of the things we enjoy most, we can only feel with our hearts. Having an emotional connection to this project was essential because I want my fans to be moved by the music and associate each song with a time where no other feeling mattered but love. This album is for people who love good music."
