Home for Christmas, the latest holiday offering from two-time GRAMMY® Award winner and 22-time Dove Award honoree Jason Crabb, has received rave reviews. The three-song EP was produced and arranged by the late Tim Akers (Reba McEntire, CeCe Winans), along with GRAMMY®-winning Rascal Flatts founding member and Red Street CEO Jay DeMarcus.
Home for Christmas previews Crabb's full-length holiday recording set for release next year. "When I signed to Red Street and Jay asked me what I wanted to do, I told him a Christmas project was one of my dream records," Crabb shares. "I've been doing music for a while now, and you hope and pray for something that helps define your legacy. I think this Christmas project is that record for me. These are the songs I hope my grandkids will grab hold of and be proud of what Grandpa did."
"I was so honored to work with Tim Akers again, and this was his last project," Crabb says. "He was a friend and we'd collaborated before, but this time was special. Tim was producing and arranging the strings for the record when his leukemia came back. He even sat in the hospital in his last days and worked on the music. Nashville lost an amazing talent in Tim, and I really want this record to honor his life. We love you, Tim."
