“Come on baby let’s go downtown

You know it’s about that time

“There’s a big ol tree in the center of the square

Shimmering in colored lights

It’s cold outside but you won’t be long

With my arms holding you tight

Girl it’s looking right now

We’re gonna have ourselves

A Lovin’ Little Christmas night

The angel’s not sittin’ on top of the tree

No she’s walkin’ right by my side

Even Santa Claus is wishin’ that he was me

On this Lovin’ Little Christmas Night…”

The healthy camaraderie that has held the hit-making band together all these years remains intact as they continue to write, record and tour, thrilling audiences with new music and fan favorites. “Lovin’ Little Christmas Night” was produced by Exile members JP Pennington and Sonny LeMaire with tracking on the project engineered by Tony Cottrill at Lonely Dog Productions in Nashville, TN and Jeff Myers at Tower Station Studios in Lexington, KY.
