Brett Eldredge is so Christmas, he’s confident no one can out holiday his holiday season. He tweeted over the weekend, “I dare you to be more in the Christmas spirit than me … I probably bleed maple syrup and candy canes by now, I’m that holly ‘n’ jolly!” Brett plans on spending Christmas with family in Paris, Illinois. Brett Eldredge says his top Christmas tradition is singing with the church choir. “Last year I did it, I’m going to do it this year. I go up in the choir loft and I sing ‘Oh Holy Night’ or ‘Mary Did You Know,’ one of those songs every year, looking down at my family and I think, ‘Wow, how fast did this year go?’ And it’s crazy but you know, you’ve got your whole family with you I’ve got my whole family in Paris, Illinois and it’s a great way to end the year.”
We don’t know what Darius Rucker did to make his wife Beth put a lump of coal in his stocking two Christmases ago. Darius recalls, “My kids were like, ‘Daddy you were bad this year? You have coal in your stocking!’ I probably worked too much or something." Here’s hoping Darius’ stocking is coal-free this year, because Christmas morning is something he looks forward to all year. Darius Rucker says his kids’ Christmas morning faces are the best. “Just seeing their faces in the morning … Christmas is such a special time, you know and just the love of everybody coming around and visiting and stopping by and saying hey. It just doesn’t happen every other day. Christmas is a beautiful thing.” Darius and Hunter Hayes are performers on TNT’s Christmas in Washington special. The show airs at 8 p.m. ET on Friday.
Thomas Rhett’s two favorite Christmas presents in life are super loud. Growing up, the “Make Me Wanna” singer couldn't get enough of his childhood drum set. But he also loves the shotgun he got from his wife Lauren last year. Thomas Rhett talks about his favorite Christmas presents. “The best gift I ever received, as a child, was probably my first drum set; and then as an adult, my wife bought me a Benelli twelve gauge shotgun last year, which was pretty awesome. So, it’s better than I ever did for her.” Thomas performs at the Glynn County Football Stadium tomorrow in Brunswick, Georgia with Dierks Bentley.
If you're on Brantley Gilbert's Christmas list, don't get your hopes up for getting something spectacular. He admits that he stinks at shopping for holiday gifts. Brantley Gilbert is a terrible shopper. “I am probably the worst Christmas shopper on the planet. I don’t shop very well at all. Like, I look hard my mom and my dad and my little brother, and as many biker brothers as I can, and the guys in my organization. Other than that, man it’s gift cards all the way. You can bet he'll up his game this year for a special someone -- his beautiful fiancee, Amber.
