Christmas season has officially begun.
The Philadelphia Eagles could very well be the first team to ever release a Christmas album and win the Super Bowl in the same season. To top it off, the album sounds like it’s going to be as good as their 9-1 performance on the field.
Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive linemen Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata are releasing a Christmas album, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Don’t let the first glance fool you though, because I’m telling you, these boys can sing.
The album is titled “A Philly Special Christmas” and will be released Dec. 23, with the first single scheduled to release Nov. 25. “A Philly Special Christmas” is being produced by The War On Drugs’ Charlie Hall, as well as Connor Barwin, who is a former linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles. It will be released by Vera Y Records, according to the outlet.
The first single from “A Philly Special Christmas” releases this Friday‼️

I’m definitely one of those people who refuses to get into the Christmas spirit until after I’ve had my Macy’s Parade, National Dog Show, loads of football, and overindulgence in food and alcohol throughout the entire day on Thanksgiving, but this year is different.

We’re going to start the Christmas season just a couple of days early, and you can thank the Philadelphia Eagles and their glorious Christmas music for that. When I first saw the headline, I thought we were looking at a cornball fest — who wouldn’t at first glance think anything musical that athletes make is trash?
Especially after this:
But the Philadelphia Eagles?
They’re over here kick-starting Christmas season early.
And kudos to them for that.
