Country Music Hall of Fame member Randy Travis and rising country star Drew Parker teamed up to release a duet of the classic Christmas song “There’s A New Kid In Town” last week. Today, the pair of true country artists released an official music video for the song, filmed at Travis’ Texas ranch and his first music video since his 2013 stroke. The duet follows Travis’ release of his remastered Christmas album, An Old Time Christmas (Deluxe Edition) which included the song as a never-before-heard track from the vault. Premiered on CMT today, the video captures a heartwarming experience of the two reuniting and sharing the holiday spirit. Listen to the single here and watch the official music video here.
