See Jake Owen, Parmalee Get Lit in ‘Christmas Spirits’ Video

Florida singer joins ‘Feels Like Carolina’ band for a boozy, off-the-wall holiday song

Jake Owen and country group Parmalee have teamed up for what promises to be a not-so-silent night in the raucous new video for “Christmas Spirits.” Hanging out with the “three wise men” – Jack Daniel, Johnnie Walker and Jim Beam – Owen decks the halls in a sweatshirt proudly proclaiming, “The tree isn’t the only thing getting lit this year,” while the members of Parmalee sport Christmas onesies, ugly sweaters and a T-shirt that reads, “Go Jesus, It’s Your Birthday.”

The holiday hijinks throughout the clip also include a surplus of Solo cups, a quartet of party girls (otherwise known as a “Dasher, a Dancer, a Prancer [and] a vixen”) and everyone’s favorite Yuletide tradition: breakdancing.

Christmas isn’t the only holiday on Owen’s mind. He became something of an anomaly last year by sharing a special treat for those who celebrate Hanukkah on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Just as many Jewish artists, including Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand, have recorded Christmas songs, Owen wanted to help spread “oy to the world” by becoming the first non-Jewish singer with an album of Hanukkah tunes. Watch the skit below.
