A little over a decade ago, Straight No Chaser ushered in the modern a cappella craze with their incredibly popular version of “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Since debuting their version of the holiday song, the group has managed to accrue more than one billion streams of their songs and have sold more than 1.5 million concert tickets worldwide.

Earlier this month, Straight No Chaser released a deluxe version of their latest holiday album, “Social Christmasing.” The album features the group’s “signature twist” on Christmas favorites like “Silver Bells,” “Frosty the Snowman,” “A Long December,” along with original holiday songs. The new tracks on the deluxe version of the album include “Celebrate Me Home,” featuring Kenny Loggins, and “Christmas Show.”
