EXCLUSIVE: Premiere of Billy Gilman’s ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ Cover

With Christmas Day less than two weeks ago everyone is really starting to get in the festive spirit – with lights and trees decorating our local shopping centres and holiday music playing across the radio it certainly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

And Grammy-nominated artist Billy Gilman is getting everyone ready for the big day with his stunning version of the classic ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’. The 2016 Voice finalist puts a fantastic country twist on the holiday favourite – making it a truly unique and beautiful cover.

Speaking about deciding to put out his own version of the track, Billy Gilman says: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas has always been such a favorite Christmas song of mine. It can be meant for a large group of people and also can be wished in the most intimate way possible. Not many know that the great Judy Garland was the original artist to sing this song. I paid a little homage to her with the intro…if you can recognize it! I love the tenderness we captured in the studio and… this the first and only take we did. We felt we wouldn’t capture anything that could top the magic of this take so we left it alone. I hope you enjoy this classic.”

Here at CelebMix we are delighted to bring you the exclusive media premiere of Gilman’s standout rendition:
