New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Larry Stewart of award-winning and chart-topping country band Restless Heart
is already in the holiday spirit, releasing a reinvented cover of Celine
Dion's Christmas classic, "Don't Save It All For Christmas Day."
Available now and streamable via all digital services, the track was exclusively premiered on Cowboys & Indians, heeding that Stewart's insightful representation will "melt the heart of any seasonal Grinch."
"I love the message, the melody, the power," says Stewart. "It's a beautiful reminder that we should care and show love for one another all year long."
A "perfect year-round love song" (Cowboys & Indians), the holiday single features Stewart's recognizably smooth vocals balanced with an electric guitar and gliding piano.
Earlier this year, the Restless Heart
frontman released his first solo album in more than 20 years, titled Shifting Gears. The 10-track collection is produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter Gordon
Kennedy (Eric Clapton, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood) and features five songs co-written by Stewart. "What's That Cowgirl See in Me" is the record's lead single.
Garnering positive reviews since its release in September
2018, Raised Rowdy confessed, "the voice of Restless Heart's Larry Stewart is still able to tear your heart out," and The Boot supported the collection as "a revitalization...of the successful solo career that Stewart had in the 1990s."
When Larry Stewart first moved to Nashville, he had his share of menial Music
Row jobs, from a stock clerk at the Country Music
Hall of Fame and mowing grass at BMI to running tape copies at MCA Music. It was while working at MCA though that longtime family friend Jerry Crutchfield coaxed Stewart into singing a few demos for his brother Jan. The word quickly spread about the young man with a voice that mixed strength and intimacy with a honest raggedness that made him real. Suddenly, Stewart was an in-demand demo singer, and it wasn't long until destiny came knocking in the form of Tim DuBois who was putting together a band called Restless Heart. To date, Restless Heart
is one of the most successful groups in country music history. The band has placed over 25 singles on the charts with six consecutive #1 hits, recorded four albums certified Gold by the RIAA and have won a wide range of awards including the Academy of Country Music's "Top Vocal Group."
