Featuring a traditional country sound and Roman’s smooth, signature vocals, “Lit” is not your everyday Christmas song. Inspired the idea of being lit up like a dive bar Christmas tree, the track finds the country crooner out of his comfort zone; however, Alexander delivers a spicy holiday tune that has singlehandedly earned a spot on our playlists this year.
“We never had a plan to release a Christmas song. I have never loved Christmas music so this was a bit out of my comfort zone,” Roman reveals to Celeb Secrets Country. “Hearing it back for the first time was great because when you go into a write, you do not know if you are going to write a song that is good. I wanted to wait and see what the song sounded like when we received it back and it was clear I had to release ‘Lit.'”
“‘Lit’ stands out because it has a traditional country element to it. That is what makes it unique amongst the Christmas music we know and love. It’s more honky tonk and it is a little different than anything I have put out,” he continues.
Releasing “Lit” is one of the many things on Roman’s holiday checklist this year, as he plans on making the drive to Kansas City later in December to spend time with the people he cares about most.
“My holiday traditions consist of family. I always go back home to Kansas City,” he explains. “During the holidays, my family and I go over to my grandpa’s house on Christmas Day in the early evening and spend time with him. I am looking forward to that this year!”
