Tanya Tucker has released her take on the Christmas classic “Merry Christmas Wherever You Are” for digital download. She recorded the song with those who won’t be with their families for the holidays in mind.
“With so many troops deployed overseas and with the economy being such that people are having to relocate to find work, recording this track was a very personal and emotional experience,” Tanya said. “Also, when I recorded that vocal, I was thinking of all the parents who had missing children and all the children who no longer had a parent to share this very special time.”
Tanya plans to record a full-length Christmas album next year. You can catch Tanya live in Mahnomen, MN on December 16 and Danbury, WI on December 17.
