The Flat River Band, comprised of the talented Sitze brothers Andy, Chad, and Dennijo, have teamed up with the sensational Grand Ole Opry member, Jeannie Seely, to sprinkle some holiday magic in the air with their latest tune, ‘Christmas Time.’
Crafted by the musical genius Chad Sitze and brought to life by Grammy award-winner Tre’ Corley, this festive collaboration is like a warm hug on a chilly winter day.
At the heart of the song lies a touching tale, a cherished tradition passed down from a father to his children. Each year, he reads a story of a selfless man, hoping that his kids will one day understand the real magic of Christmas.
“Growing up our dad would sit and tell us the story of the birth of Jesus every year. And now, we have passed that tradition down to our kids,” Flat River Bands says regarding the inspiration behind “Christmas Time.”
The Sitze brothers have beautifully woven this narrative into their music, creating a timeless message wrapped in holiday cheer.
