Take a “Sleigh Ride” With Runaway June on New Holiday EP, “When I Think About Christmas”

Runaway June released a new holiday EP, When I Think About Christmas, on Oct. 16.

The five-song EP features three holiday standards, “Sleigh Ride,” “O Holy Night” and “Let It Snow,” as well as two original tunes, “Christmas on the Radio” and the title track.

“Our new Christmas EP, When I Think About Christmas, has all of these beautiful mountain Appalachian sounds,” says the trio in a release. “So we put our own little spin on Christmas music, and we’ve got some fiddle, so why not.”

Penned by Leroy Anderson and Mitchell Parish, “Sleigh Ride” is a holiday favorite that’s been covered by Johnny Mathis, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Grant and more.
