Bobby and Stacey told Richard Marx he should’ve recorded a Christmas album a long time ago.
“Oh, no – I should not have. Back in the day when I had album after album, single after single and tour after tour, the record company was after me from the get go. The minute I had my second hit song the record company was after me to do a Christmas album. I was in my early 20s. And I was like, I’m not gonna do a Christmas album. That’s what old people do. (pause) So here I am running around going, ‘Hey, everybody I got a Christmas album!’”
Richard has just released his first Christmas album, Christmas Spirit. The CD features 11 all-time Christmas Classics including O Holy Night, Little Drummer Boy, White Christmas, Silent Night, and many more, plus two new Christmas originals.
Richards has sold more than 30 million albums, with 14 chart-topping single.s As a songwriter he won a Grammy for Song Of The Year for co-authoring Luther Vandross’ Dance with My Father. To this day, he is the only male artist in history to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.
