Kristian Bush is toasting the holiday season with the release of his new single, “Thinking About Drinking For Christmas” today (10/30). Written by Bush alongside pals Brett James and Chris Young, the independent release is now available at iTunes and wherever digital music is sold: http://bit.ly/TBD4X.
“I am proud to release my first-ever Christmas single,” Bush says. “It feels like it has been a long time coming and it could be the beginning of something fun. I love Christmas music and have been writing Christmas songs as a tradition every year. Not sure if you feel like you might need a drink to handle your family during the holidays, but if you do, this could be your song. Christmas has a soundtrack and I want to be on yours.”
Bush is currently performing shows nationwide and will cross the pond to headline the first-ever C2C Social at the Brooklyn Bowl in London, England on 11/14. Following his international stop, he will return to Nashville, TN to perform at the Grand Ole Opry (11/17) and then head home for his annual 2-night run of Thanksgiving shows at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA on 11/29 and 11/30.
Bush has been leaving his mark on music for more than two decades. The singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist started his career with folk-rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the early ‘90s; in 2004, he exploded onto the country music scene with Sugarland, surpassing sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five No. 1 singles and winning numerous awards, including GRAMMYs, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards and CMAs. Bush made his solo debut with catchy Top 20 hit “Trailer Hitch” and his follow-up single “Light Me Up” was spotlighted on APPLE MUSIC, PEOPLE, ETONLINE, and BILLBOARD.COM. Both songs are featured on his critically-acclaimed album SOUTHERN GRAVITY, which COUNTRY WEEKLY named the “feel-good album of the year.” To date, Bush has garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and in 2011 he founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect. Recent collaborations include Bobby Bones, Rita Wilson, Dan Tyminski, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and more. Bush is serving as a celebrity ambassador for Goodwill Industries International, with “Trailer Hitch” featured as the centerpiece of their #GiveItAway campaign. Bush is also the focus of NASH TV Films’ first-ever documentary WALK TALL: The Journey Of Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, which aired in 80 markets nationwide.
