This holiday season Jim Brickman & Five for Fighting are releasing a brand new holiday single titled “Christmas Where You Are.” Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik and Brickman have been working on this song in the late spring when they first came together to talk about writing a Christmas Song.
Both seemed to have the same idea that everything has been done when it comes to Christmas. But then they thought – has there ever been a holiday song done for our men and women in the armed forces who are far from home this time of year. John & Jim took to Google and scoured the worldwide web for answers – the didn’t find anything. “Christmas Where You Are” was born.
This song is a thank you to all of our men and women at home and abroad who are serving our country. It’s a message that wherever they may be fighting for our freedom, we’re thinking of them and that it is still Christmas where they are.
Brickman & Ondrasik wrote & recorded the song in California throughout the summer. They got together to lay down the piano tracks in John Ondrasik’s studio. Of course it took a few takes, but they finally captured Jim Brickman’s piano magic.
Behind the Scenes of the
Earlier this month Jim Brickman & John Ondrasik had the opportunity to perform the song “Christmas Where You Are” together LIVE in front of a studio audience or the first time ever. John Ondrasik was filming a holiday television special for PBS in Salt Lake City and invited Jim Brickman to be his special guest. After performing the song live, the crowd roared with applause and cheers. Several people came up to both of them after the show to thank them for the song because either they have a friend, family member or they themselves served or are serving in the military.
Now the song has been recorded, artwork created and CDs pressed. Jim Brickman & John Ondrasik’s new holiday song “Christmas Where You Are” is ready for you! But you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer before you can hear the whole thing…
Can’t wait – 2 of my favorite artists – Will be going to Jim’s Christmas concert at Wentz Hall in Naperville, Il in December with my wife and daughter. Wishing you both continued blessings and success

I want to thank you for this wonderful song. My husband served over seas and is now retired after 23 years. My son currently serves and was over seas in Afghanistan. This is the best tribute song for the military. God Bless You.
As the daughter, wife, and mother in the military, my heart swelled when I first heard this song. Thank you.
My local radio station is playing this song a lot and I am so grateful for that! What a beautiful tribute to our service members past, present and future. Without them, we would have no freedom and certainly no Christmas. Each time I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes. Just a beautiful song. Thank you so very much!
What a touching tribute. Just heard it on the radio and had to look it up. Was lucky to see Jim Brinkman years ago at a performance put on by STAR 102.5 in Buffalo New York. Thank you for the thank you to our troops.
It is 12/23/17. I just heard this song for the first time. It is so touching. Thank you for thinking of creating such a song. I am only disappointed that I have not heard it played on the Christmas radio stations throughout the season. I really hope it will catch on and be a holiday favorite. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness toward our troops.
