With the holiday season coming up on us, we’ve been sliding into the spirit with some of our favourite artists. And to help get us a little more excited for gifts and friends and family and holiday music, Ben Hudson has joined the fun.
We caught up with Ben for a quick, holiday edition, round of 5 Quick Questions, and found out his favourite childhood Christmas song, who he’d love to duet with, and how he likes his eggnog.
Note: Congratulations to Ben – he’s been named a winner in the Kick It With Kissel contest and will be opening for Brett Kissel in North Bay, Ontario on February 23, 2018.

5 Quick Holiday Questions with Ben Hudson
Q) Did you have a favourite Christmas songs when you were a kid?
Ben) I’m old enough to remember staying up all night listening to the radio just to hear your favourite song again. I barely slept one Christmas Eve waiting for Bob and Doug McKenzie’s version of Twelve Days of Christmas to come on. By far my favourite Christmas song as a kid.
Q) Do you have a favourite Christmas song to play?
Ben) I don’t yet but I am currently working on some good ones for the upcoming ‘Home for the Holidays’ Christmas Concert with Leah Daniels and Beverley Mahood. Christmas Cookies by George Strait is a lot of fun.
Q) If you could partner up with any artist for a collaboration on a Christmas song, who would you choose?
Ben) Lindi Ortega. It would be a Christmas song with a twist for sure.
Q) What is your favourite beverage for a holiday party?
Ben) Spiced rum and eggnog could be the best thing about the holiday season.
Q) If you could only have 1 dessert after Christmas dinner, what would you choose?
Ben) Spiced rum and eggnog.
