Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line & More Share Best Christmas Gifts…

Christmas Gift

Tomorrow morning most of us will wake-up and enjoy some Christmas cheer with family, tearing open gifts. Check out what some of your favorite country artists call their best gifts ever!

“My favorite Christmas gift is definitely my first Honda 50 motorcycle that I got back in 1984. It was just an amazing gift to have under the tree, and I never will forget seeing that as I walked out.” –Luke Bryan

“The best gift I ever received as a child was probably my first drum set. As an adult, my wife bought me a Benelli 12 gauge shotgun last year, which was pretty awesome. It’s better than I ever did for her.” –Thomas Rhett

“I am probably the worst Christmas shopper on the planet. I don’t shop very well at all. I look hard for my mom, my dad and my little brother, and as many biker brothers as I can, and the guys in my organization. Other than that, man it’s gift cards all the way.” –Brantley Gilbert

“I was around 10 or 11 and I wanted a guitar. My mom was a single parent and we didn’t have much. My grandmother told me I probably wasn’t going to get that guitar this year and I was cool with that. I woke up Christmas morning and there it was, sitting in the chair right next to the Christmas tree. I still remember being so excited and so happy. It was just a great present. And I knew how hard my mom worked to get that for me.” –Darius Rucker

“My best gift for Christmas, one year I actually got a dirt bike. It was big, ’cause dad would always act like, ‘You’re not gonna get much this Christmas, times are tough.’ So you never had a whole lot of expectation. That one Christmas there was hardly anything under the tree and I’m just like, ‘Well I guess he was right.’ Then he took me outside and there was a dirt bike in the yard – and for me, that was like the best thing ever. I was probably fifteen-years-old. That was an awesome day.” –Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard

Darius Rucker will appear on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday, Dec. 22nd, performing his original holiday song, “What God Wants For Christmas.” The tune appears on Rucker’s first Christmas album, Home For The Holidays, released on October 27th on Capitol Records Nashville. Rucker co-wrote “What God Wants For Christmas” along with the other original, “Candy Cane Christmas,” for the 12-track album, which also features holiday standards such as “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow.”

“It’s so hard to write a Christmas song that hasn’t already been written,” says Rucker of the song he co-wrote with his producer Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell. “This song embodies what the holidays are all about and reminds folks to think about what we can give instead of get this time of year. I am really proud of this song and the beautiful sentiment it imparts. I’m so excited to share it on Good Morning America!”

Rucker is finishing work on his fourth solo country album, to be released in 2015. The album’s debut single “Homegrown Honey” is currently climbing the Country charts.

Home For The Holidays is available now everywhere music is sold. For news and more information, visit
