Brandon Lay and his wife Nicole covered the holiday song, “Tennessee Christmas,” and released it on Youtube. They included their infant son Ryder who made his video debut in the clip. The song has special meaning to Brandon who grew up in West Tennessee.
“‘Tennessee Christmas’ is one of my favorite Christmas songs just because I was born and raised in Tennessee, and it’s one we always sang around the piano this time of year,” says Brandon.
They haven’t thought about any new holiday traditions, but Brandon says it’s a different dynamic as a family of three and they’re going to savor every moment of son Ryder’s first Christmas.
Brandon is currently making his way up the country charts with “Yada Yada Yada.”

“‘Tennessee Christmas’ is one of my favorite Christmas songs just because I was born and raised in Tennessee, and it’s one we always sang around the piano this time of year. So, it just seemed fitting to do it for a cover.”
Brandon Lay (new tradition with Ryder) OC: …looking forward to it. :23
“Yeah, so we have a new addition to our family this year for Christmas. We kinda spend time between her parents’ place and my parents’ place in Jackson (Tennessee). So as far as any new traditions, it’s just gonna be totally different dynamic having him here. So, we look forward to creating those, and we don’t really have anything specific in mind, but just the fact that there are three of us now is probably enough change for now, so we’re looking forward to it.”
