Rank #1: Ep. 60: Christmas Song – Little Drummer Boy

Podcast cover
Read more

When my wife and I first married, we started a tradition of recording Christmas songs every year. Sometimes it's just one song and other years, we've recorded as many as five. We've kept it up for 11 years now, totaling 24 songs. This year, we recorded "Little Drummer Boy." I sang lead vocals, played acoustic guitar, bass, mandolin, tamborine, and cajon. My wife, Melissa sang harmony vocals. Our three kids joined in and played cajon and sang backing vocals. It was a fun song to put together. I hope you enjoy it and have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
