Epperson’s musical finesse shines through in the track’s bouncy groove within the 2nd verse, infusing an inviting layer of playfulness, and preventing the song from becoming predictable. The carefully structured transition between verses and chorus underscores the song’s well-crafted architecture, maintaining an engaging rhythm throughout.

Drawing inspiration from classic Christmas tunes, Epperson aimed to capture the festive spirit and optimism synonymous with the holiday season. Describing his creative process, Epperson shares, “I’ve always loved Paul McCartney’s Wonderful Christmastime.

I wanted to write a Christmas song that really captured the positive vibe of the holiday season.”

As he connects intimately with his audience, “Christmastime” offers a refreshing, upbeat, and joyous addition to the holiday music landscape, inviting listeners to immerse themselves in its spirited charm and toe-tapping allure.
