Twister Sister frontman Dee Snider and Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale have teamed up for a new version of Snider’s classic “The Magic of Christmas Day.” Snider originally wrote the song as a Christmas gift for his wife with no plans to release it. However the song eventually found its way to Celine Dion, who recorded it for her 1998 album, These Are Special Times, which went on to be one of the best-selling holiday records of all time. Over 20 years later, Snider has released his own rendition of “The Magic of Christmas Day,” with guest vocals from Hale.
Snider said in a statement, “When it was recently suggested that I should finally record this song myself, I knew I needed to bring in a young powerhouse vocalist to not only duet with me, but light a Yuletide fire under my a**! I only knew of one rock vocalist who could deliver on all those fronts, and she did in spades: the incredible Lzzy Hale of Halestorm!” Added Hale, “If you’re ever in your life gonna go full on, all gas, no brakes ‘Christmas Cheer,’ you do it Dee Snider-style. I was so honored to get the call from Dee on his holiday classic ‘The Magic of Christmas Day.'”
