Santa in the Headlights was a song that came to me as many do, in the shower. Not sure what it is about the shower, but I write more lyrics in there than you’d probably care to imagine. Anywho, I knew right away it was gonna be a country song, the lyrics just kinda pushed it in that direction. I’m not a country artist by a long-shot, but it definitely is in the musical soup that is Austin. I thought it was energetic and a bit catchy so I kicked the album off with it.
I hope people don’t think because it is the first tune, that the whole album is country. There’s a bit of something in there for everyone. Check out Merry Christmas from Austin, and tell me what you think!
So before this photo I was going to be a coder. This is where it all went wrong. A no good stinking musician was forged with iron, steel, and braun! What a gift though. It just goes to show that with enough nagging and persistence, you can guilt your parents into buying you anything!
Check out my new release Merry Christmas from Austin. Available at all fine online outlets. Throw back some Christmas cheer, decorate that tree, and listen to me!
Some folks have inquired as to why in the heck I would want to put out a Christmas album. So I’ve added a new page to the site that tells The Story behind Merry Christmas from Austin. Check it out, I hope it solves some of the mystery. Also enjoy this photo of the family. I was about 10 days old here. Ahh… the memories.
