The “Christmas Shoes” is a very polarizing song. Some people whole-heartedly love it while others feel it is dramatically manipulative. We are even split inside the show. Betty Rock is not a fan of the song, while I happen to love it!
Gavin, being the kind soul he is, wanted to bridge the gap between the haters and lovers of this song. So, he wrote a new version of the song and we had one of the writers of Christmas Shoes, Leo Ahlstrom, come in to perform it live.
Spoiler alert: the mom does Not meet Jesus in this song. So hopefully, everyone is happy now.
In case your address is “under a rock,” here is the video for the original Christmas Shoes song.
