Rhett Walker has released his own take of Mariah Carey's international #1 smash "All I Want for Christmas Is You." Lyrically, the song describes how the singer does not care about the usual commercial aspect of the holiday season such as ornamental lights, trees, snow and presents, as long as they are with their spouse for Christmas.   

Walker reveals why he chose to record this modern day classic.  "I was super excited to record this song for this Christmas. This year my wedding anniversary marked that I have been married to April for half of my life. So I've been sitting, thinking through all that Christ has done in our marriage. Everyone doesn't have a teenage pregnancy moment like we do... but everyone has that moment where left alone to ourselves, it's destruction.

So, I wanted to cover a song for all the marriages and relationships who have put God at the forefront and are thanking God for their special loved one, as they dance to `All I Want For Christmas Is You'!!"

In his career, Rhett Walker has released three albums, 2012's Come To The RiverHere's To The Ones in 2014, and 2020's Good To Me. Walker received a GRAMMY nomination for the single "When Mercy Found Me," and is a three-time GMA Dove Awards nominees (New Artist of the Year, Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year and Rock/Contemporary Song of the Year). His latest single "Gospel Song" follows the release of "Believer," Walker's most successful career radio single to date spending 25 weeks in the top ten at Christian radio. He's toured with many of the biggest names in Christian music, such as MercyMe and Newsboys, and has appeared multiple times on the Grand Ole Opry.
