PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS' syndicated "AFTER MIDNITE WITH BLAIR GARNER" debuted a new Country version of THE STUNNERS' "Santa Bring My Soldier Home," recorded by producer/songwriter DESMOND CHILD after GARNER suggested that the song could make a Country hit. The new version debuted on WEDNESDAY night's show, was released to affiliates this morning, and will be made available to all CLEAR CHANNEL Country stations on FRIDAY (12/11). Fans can download the song for free at GARNER's website starting SATURDAY (12/12).
"'Santa Bring My Soldier Home' is such a powerful song for today's world, and I think it will become one of the classic holiday songs played each year," said GARNER. "I’m honored that DESMOND and his team have created this Country version and are allowing me to bring it to the AFTER MIDNITE audience and affiliates, as well as Country radio stations nationwide. God bless the countless families asked to give up so much this year. We thank you for your service and appreciate all you’ve given up for our freedom."
CHILD added, "'Santa Bring My Soldier Home' performed by THE STUNNERS is a moving tribute to our men and women in the armed forces who are far from home, and those who have given their lives to protect our freedom."
