“We always enjoy recording Christmas music because it’s our favorite time of the year. Last year we recorded and released “White Christmas” featuring our dear friends The Oak Ridge Boys. This time around we picked “Christmas Without You” which was originally recorded by Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton. It’s always been one of our favorite duets by them both. We hope everyone enjoys our version of this classic hit which we will be performing on The upcoming Dailey & Vincent Christmas Special. Happy Holidays!” - Love, T.G. Sheppard & Kelly Lang
