Meghan Patrick recently sat down to share her Christmas favorites with Country Now by completing our “This or That: Christmas Edition” quiz.
The 2x CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year revealed her holiday picks when it came to cookies, Christmas lights, festive foods and more.
Patrick is putting her love for Christmas on full display with the release of her very own rendition of Bing Crosby classic, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”
The song took on a whole new meaning for Patrick in 2020 and she hopes others will be able to find comfort in the song as well.
“One of my favorite traditions was watching White Christmas on Christmas Eve every year and one of my favorite songs in that movie was Bing Crosby’s version of ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas.’ I wanted mine to be reminiscent of that, but I also wanted to keep the delivery raw and emotional to create my own version. As someone who moved out of my parents house pretty young and has spent a lot of time on the road touring, going home for Christmas was always something I really looked forward to,” she explains. “In light of this year’s challenges with COVID, and knowing that some people (myself included) may not be able to go home to be with their family because of it, ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’ seemed like the perfect choice to give everyone a bit of nostalgic hope leading up the holidays.”
