The budding country songstress describes the festive tune as “a fun romantic Christmas song that is about not caring about getting material things for Christmas, but instead just wanting to be in the presence of your loved ones.”
Written and recorded during the Coronavirus pandemic, Huff teamed up with Nashville writers Phillip Pence and Mason Douglas for a Zoom co-write and the rest was history. With Pence and Douglas making the track in Music City, Huff laid down her powerful vocals in Los Angeles, describing the process as “definitely a quarantine [one.]”
“I hope that people will smile and maybe dance a little bit when they listen to this song! And get into the holiday cheer,” she tells CS Country.

“Wish List” is the first of many original songs Huff will be releasing, as she tells our reporters that a new song will come out every six weeks beginning January 8, 2021. “I have written so many songs this year and have been able to safely record some of them, so stay tuned,” she says.
