It was teased a few months ago, and it’s finally happening. Jason Kelce reveals amazing surprise guests on the Eagles’ new Christmas album. We were so excited last year when Jason announced his idea was becoming a reality. A real Christmas album with songs sung by our favorite Eagles players. Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson, and Jordan Mailata are the three main players featured on last year’s and this year’s album, but if you listened to last year’s album, you know they did a fun piece at the end with all the players basically reciting ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas with a Philly twist. It was fun hearing Jalen Hurts because he can play football, but he sure can’t sing.
A Philly Special Christmas Special will have 11 tracks, including a Jason Kelce original called “Santa’s Night.” Yes, an original, as in Jason Kelce wrote the song himself! How crazy that he had his idea to do this Christmas album last year, it was so successful that it ended up on the Billboard Charts, so he decided to not only do another album for this year but almost write an original Christmas song. AND THEN his brother Travis Kelce started dating Taylor Swift. I don’t think Jason met Taylor yet, but imagine if he went to her for advice on songwriting!
The album will support initiatives from CHOP and the Children’s Crisis Treatment Center, which is who the album supported last year. CHOP will put its share of the proceeds toward its Snowflake Station, a pop-up toy store that allows caregivers of sick kids to select presents at no cost, while CCTC will spend its funding on its annual toy drive.
The $75 vinyl of the new album and $125 vinyl of both holiday albums will be available for preorder starting on Friday, Nov. 3. Check out all the special guests who are featured on this year’s album.
