Ron Gallo shares a cover of the classic Bing Crosby tune "White Christmas" via New West Records. Perfect for the holiday season, Gallo's sincere crooner-cover emits nostalgia and warmth.

A few years ago around Christmas I sat on the floor solo in front of a TV fireplace and listened to the Dean Martin Christmas Album 12 full times on repeat then recorded this cover. I love the old crooner stuff. It's like a blanket. With how 2020 has been, I've leaned heavy into nostalgia as a mental survival tactic so figured I'd give this track a proper release and used a photo of me as a kid on Christmas as the cover art as another way to return to what seemed like "simpler times".
