As they hinted, Dan + Shay are bringing the Christmas cheer this holiday season, starting with the brand new holiday tune “Pick Out A Christmas Tree,” which is out now exclusively on Amazon Music. In a behind-the-scenes clip about the making of the song, Dan Smyers admits it is “always difficult” to write an original Christmas tune, noting, “there are so many good Christmas songs that already exist.” "One day we sat down to write it and it sort of poured out of us,” he says of the track. “It's just the soundtrack for folks going out [with] families, friends, going to a Christmas tree farm or going to a store down the street and picking out Christmas trees." Shay Mooney adds that while recording the song was “difficult sometimes because it’s not in the wintertime when we’re recording these songs,” he says it was “so much fun recording” it. He adds, “We tried to fully put ourselves into the Christmas spirit." Check out a clip of the song below.
