What is your favorite Christmas song? What makes it your favorite? “Rockin’ Little Christmas” a song I wrote with my dear friend, legendary Bruce Channell while sitting in my little white Volkswagen in the middle of a summer rainstorm! We decided to make good use of our time while trapped in my car and write a song called , “ Rockin’ Little Christmas!” When I signed with RCA records, “Rockin Little Christmas” became my very first video for the label!!! As far as an older classic… I would have to say “The Christmas Song”
