Dealing with your family can be difficult during the holiday season. If you find yourself needing a few laughs to deal with it all, just pick up the new holiday album “A Chrisley Christmas.”
For those of you who watch every episode of “Chrisley Knows Best” on USA, you are safe to assume this album captures all of the fun and sarcasm you’ve come to expect from Todd Chrisley and his family. The opening track, “What I Want for Christmas” is a prime example of that Chrisley family dynamic.
Todd tells Rare Country, “I just have zero tolerance for B.S., so if I hear it or I see it coming my way, I try to cut it off. With my family, there’s always someone trying to sling it my way, so I’m always kind of on dial to send it back at you.”
The idea for “A Chrisley Christmas” popped up over the summer after Todd’s duet with Sara Evans, “Infinite Love,” because a surprise hit on iTunes.
Todd says of the holiday project, “Certainly, it turned out better than what I thought it was going to turn out, because it’s a very fun album.”
Todd’s wife Julie, his mom Faye, and his children were happy to take part in the Christmas album, too.
His son, Chase, is heard singing on the album, but you’ll notice he didn’t quite make it for the album cover photo shoot.
“Chase is lazy at times, which is why I’m carrying him on the cover,” Todd explains. “It is a cutout, because Chase could not make it to the photo shoot. He’s so busy on Snapchat and Instagram and hoing around that he could not make it there.”
Quite a few country stars join the party for “A Chrisley Christmas.” The star-studded guest list includes Jana Kramer, Michael Ray, RaeLynn and Emily West.
