“I’ve always wanted to record a holiday song,” said Claire Petrie. “As soon as I heard this tune, I knew this was the one to record and I’m so honored to have T. Graham Brown be a part of it."
This past year Claire Petrie released her latest album, The One, which included her last two singles “(C’est la Vie) You Never Can Tell” and “Somewhere Off The Map” both of which were warmly received by radio and industry critics alike. Now, Petrie is getting everyone in the holiday spirit with the release of her first Christmas single, “He Would Be King.”
Written by James Larsen and Roger True, and produced by Mark Moseley, “He Would Be King” finds Petrie sharing vocals with Grammy nominated and CMA awards winner, T. Graham Brown. Their sincere vocals merge on the gentle yet sweeping ballad about the thoughts and experiences of Mary and Joseph surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ. The song has a contemporary religious feel accompanied by a wonderful message that, as we head into the holiday months, reminds one of the true meaning for the season.
