Gab’s Countdown to Christmas: Jake Owen


When it comes to Christmas songs, they’re usually full of things like letting it snow and walking in a winter wonderland. However, sometimes, you just feel like getting a little tropical for Christmas. And who better to get us in a beachin’ Christmas spirit than Jake Owen?

A few years back, Jake, his long hair and a lei took the stage at CMA’s Country Christmas for a performance of the Hawaiian Christmas classic “Mele Kalikimaka,” originally written in 1949. Jake has since recorded the song and we can’t imagine a more perfect fit.

While I personally enjoy being cold on Christmas, this certainly makes a Hawaiian holiday seem pretty appealing. Can’t deny the cheer in “Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way to say Merry Christmas to you!”
