Country Music Hall of Famer Randy Travis has teamed up with rising country star Drew Parker for a new rendition of a classic Keith Whitley Christmas song “There’s A New Kid In Town.”
“We’re looking for the King / The new Messiah / We’re following the star / Shining brighter / Old man won’t you help us if you can / He shook his head / But he pointed his hand,” sings Travis.
The duet follows Travis’ release of his remastered Christmas album,An Old Time Christmas (Deluxe Edition), which included the song as a never-before-heard track from the vault.
“I hope fans see the true reason for the season in this video. Jesus, our Lord, and togetherness. That’s what it’s all about!” Travis said about the video for the song.
“Not to mention the fact that Country music is alive and well in this new crop,” he added. “Drew nails the vocals on this – I’m so glad he went in with Kyle Lehning to record alongside mine from all those years ago.”
Originally released in 1989, An Old Time Christmas, is certified Gold by the RIAA. The remastered deluxe edition of the album included three tracks from the vault.
