Popdose is very pleased to present to you, as an exclusive premiere, the new holiday single from Memphis’ own boys, Jimmy Stephens Jr. and The Blues City Road Dogs.  “I Wish It Was Christmas” is a joyful, exuberant singalong that feels just right for the holiday season.  This wonderful new track has harmonies galore, melody and an instant classic nature that says it should be perennial favorite.  As before, Jimmy (who handles bass and piano) is joined by the deadly guitars of Adam Hill, the thunder drums of Jody Stephens and the multi-talented Rick Steff on glockenspiel, melodica and accordion as well as “Santa’s Helpers”, singing in the background.

I guarantee once you hear this song, you will find yourself listening to it again and again during the holiday season.  And that’s what it’s all about…

“I Wish It Was Christmas” will be available along with 4 other tracks from the Road Ready album as of December 5th, 2016
