Curb | Word Entertainment’s Love & The Outcome are spreading holiday cheer with the release of “Christmas Lights,” out today (10/29). The upbeat, joyful song finds the husband/wife duo of Jodi King and Chris Rademaker remembering the reason for the season, even if Christmas doesn’t look quite the same this year. Listen to the festive track HERE and below.
Love & The Outcome wrote “Christmas Lights” with Mark Campbell (for KING & COUNTRY) and Benji Cowart (Big Daddy Weave, Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey) in the wake of their Nashville home flooding back in March. With the holiday season in full view, it became clear that the Canadian duo and their two young sons wouldn’t be in their new home in time for Christmas. So they decided to turn lemons into lemonade with their latest holiday single.
“We wanted to write a song for everybody, like us, who is going through a different kind of Christmas,” shares King. “We have lived in five different rentals in five months since our house flooded, and this Christmas is going to feel pretty different setting up a tree in a rental apartment. But you know what, no matter where you are, no matter what you’re going through, the King has come to make our burdens light. So we wrote a really fun song, and we hope it brings you lots of joy this season.”
In addition to dropping an original Christmas track, the couple has relaunched their popular “Love & The Outcome Podcast.” A brand-new episode recently premiered where Jodi and Chris discuss what to do when the Bible feels too scary to read to your kids—a situation they’ve encountered on their own parenting journey. While some episodes share a simple, insightful discussion between the two hosts, others spotlight conversations with friends and fellow artists, including Bob Goff, Natalie Grant, Ellie Holcomb and Mandisa—all of whom were featured in Season 1.
