To Me.” Out today, the song is available on the websites and

Send Thee” as a b-side. Digital downloads are available at most outlets

asked about the inspiratation behind the song, Oates replied, “So much
has been said when it comes to holiday songs, there is a very narrow
frame of references that work in this genre. I’ve always wanted to write
and record a swing style song. It reminds me of the music that my folks
listened to when I was a young kid. I penned the original version of
‘Santa Be Good To Me’ with Josh Charles, Steven Davis and Allisa Moreno.
We tried to write a contemporary lyric talking about trying to find
love an companionship in a modern world and still not lose the holiday
multi GRAMMY nominated band, The Time Jumpers, are the perfect
complement to the timeless sound of the song. The members of “The Time
Jumpers” who played on the record, each a master of his instrument,
include: Vince Gill (electric guitar), Paul Franklin (steel guitar),
Brad Albin (upright bass), Billy Thomas (drums), Kenny Sears (fiddle),
Larry Franklin (fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle) Andy Reiss (electric
guitar) and Jeff Taylor (accordion).
working with The Time Jumpers Oates adds, “The first time I heard them
perform I was blown away by their high level of musicianship and knew
someday I wanted to record with them. ‘Santa Be Good To Me’ felt like
the perfect song to work on together. We recorded it live in the
studio…it was magic…everything I hoped for and more.”
