"12 Cocktails of Christmas" Jake Bartley Band's Holiday Spirited Bourbon and Coke

Do you have a family tradition you love to do each Christmas? My grandpa and I use to sit around, play, and tinker with guitars while watching World War 2 films every Christmas break when I was young. After “Band of Brothers” was released, our tradition evolved into watching that series every Christmas.  -Andrew Crawford

What have you asked Santa for this year? Being a dad I haven’t specifically asked Santa for anything, but if I were to, I would ask for my kids to be happy and healthy for another year! -Matt Miller

What was a popular gift that most children wanted when you were growing up? Did you have one? Dude, if you didn’t ask for a new bike when you were growing up, did you even Christmas!?!? I know myself and all the kids on my street growing up were all excited to meet up and ride together every Christmas afternoon and show off our sweet new rides. I remember one year specifically a couple of us got these “nerf edition” bikes? I think that’s who made them. They had a radio between the handle bars and we thought we were the coolest! -Matt Miller

Do you have a favorite Christmas Movie? We actually covered this in a recent Facebook live fan questionnaire and it was a lot of fun. My favorite, hands down.... “Die Hard”. Jake scoffed and said “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” while Andrew said “Home Alone 2”. All great, but I’ll stick to the “yippee ki yay” Christmas movie option. -Matt Miller What about a favorite Christmas food? Do you cook a big Christmas dinner? We wake up, do the “present mayhem” and then eat a big breakfast to try to combat the amount of chocolate the kids eat during the day... by the time dinner hits, a sugar crash is all we have to look forward to. -Jake Bartley

What is your favorite Christmas song/album? That’s an easy one the “Home Alone” soundtrack.  - Andrew Crawford

Name three things you are thankful for this year? 1- A busy and successful road schedule 2- Co-workers and band mates that have each other’s backs 3- A family that supports us through thick and matter what the music life throws at you -Jake Bartley

What have been the highlights for you from 2018? much time ya got haha! Getting to meet, perform for and collaborate with Vince Gill. Recording in Nashville with some musical Titans. Getting picked up by a label that treats us fantastic and watching my family grow. -Jake Bartley

Any New Year's resolutions? We had such a great time working on this last album in 2018, so for 2019, writing more for our next albums is high on the list. -Andrew Crawford

What is 2019 going to look like for you? BUSY!! We are looking forward to more studio time, special guests and touring. Who knows what the future holds but we are definitely in the “grind” stage of our careers right now. But, I don’t think any of us could sit still even if we had any down time. -Jake Bartley
