Country Music star JT Hodges releases his contemporary new take on the classic holiday song “Joy to the World” today via iTunes HERE.  The newly recorded version of the song is guaranteed to become this year’s most popular Country music holiday tune and is featured in the new holiday Hallmark Channel network movie “Finding Christmas” in which Hodges also stars.

The English hymn originally written by Isaac Watts in 1719, celebrates Christ’s triumphant return and imitates the language of the New Testament. It has gone on to become a mainstay of the holidays for generations. Hodges’ own arrangement of the classic marks the first time he has released a Christmas/holiday song in conjunction with a network film release. Preview the single HERE
