Multi-award-winning artist and songwriter Matthew West's brand new song "Come Home for Christmas" will be the theme song for the Christmas season on the Great American Family channel starting on 11/3. Fans can hear "Come Home for Christmas" for eight weeks during Great American Christmas celebrating their holiday films.
West writes, "My dear friend Candace Cameron Bure reached out a few months ago telling me about all she has been working on at the network for this holiday season and suggested I help bring in a musical aspect to the programming. The channel features 24/7 Christmas movies through the end of the year and 18 Original Movie Premieres every Saturday and Sunday night at 8pm ET. Not only will "Come Home for Christmas" be playing on the network for 8 weeks throughout the season but we have another big surprise coming for you as well!
"`Come Home for Christmas' is not just a song, it's an invitation for every heart to return to the wonder, the peace, the love and the hope that this holiday season offers to every heart. I hope when people tune in to watch their favorite holiday films on the network, that this song will serve as a musical reminder of what Christmas is all about."
"Matthew is one of my favorite storytellers through music of all time," shares Candace Cameron Bure. "The originality and authenticity of his Christmas songs can be felt within his lyrics and melodies. I'm incredibly thrilled that he is a part of Great American Family, and that our audience can experience such moving music that is unlike any other."
"Original music plays an essential role in creating a cozy and memorable Christmas experience and is a key differentiator for Great American Family in the holiday movie space," said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media. "Matthew's inspirational 'Come Home for Christmas' perfectly embodies our 'Welcome Home to Great American Christmas' theme and the song is sure to resonate with our audience this holiday season."
