Driving Home For Christmas - Single

“I chose to cover ‘Driving Home for Christmas’ because it's always been my favorite Christmas song,“ Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy tells Apple Music of his submission to Carols Covered—Apple Music’s collection of Christmas standards updated by contemporary artists. “I think I feel an extra attachment to it now because I'm always away from home. Christmas is the time that I just know I'm going to be home and I can always count on that.” Kennedy, who grew up singing carols at a piano with his family, adds that “Driving Home for Christmas” transports him back to that time instantaneously. “This song actually makes me think about when I was much younger and you would hope it snowed and you could miss two days of school, and then being in the choir, singing all these Christmas carols. It’s just a time I'll never forget.”
