Different Kind Of Christmas

Album: Single Release Only (2014)
  • songfacts ®
  • This Christmas single was inspired by the life and passing of Schultz's father-in-law. Said the singer-songwriter, "We tried to write the lyrics that would reflect the honesty of the emotions we were feeling - that Christmas was still hard, even though we have faith that Kate's dad is with Jesus."

    "We had no idea how many lives this song would touch, but it only makes sense because there are very few people that haven't experienced a loss that makes life a lot different. There are few times in the year when that difference is felt more powerfully than around the holidays."
