Ryan Griffin releases ‘Little Saint Nick’

Track features Jay DeMarcus

Red Street Country artist Ryan Griffin is gearing up for the holiday season with the release of “Little Saint Nick,” featuring Jay DeMarcus. Griffin has also released a tropical, holiday-inspired animated lyric video to accompany the song.

Originally made famous by The Beach Boys, Griffin – with the help of country star and Red Street Records Founder, Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus – puts his own modern, country spin on the upbeat, carefree Christmas song about Saint Nick. The song showcases Griffin’s wide vocal range, with his rich voice framed by background vocal harmonies that pay homage to The Beach Boys’ version of the track.

“The holidays are my favorite time of year so I wanted to release a Christmas cover,” Griffin shares. “Being from Florida, I’m used to a warmer Christmas than most people, so covering a song by The Beach Boys just seemed like the perfect move. I’m also so pumped to have Jay on the song – he’s one of my biggest musical influences and has welcomed me into Red Street Records family. Can’t wait for everyone to hear the track!”

In addition to releasing new music, Griffin is currently in the midst of his Slow Down Sunrise Tour, with shows across the country through December 2022.
