When The Tell Alls‘ Ken Buono first released his Bright Lights Of Christmas EP back in 2008—before he left Philadelphia for Nashville, TN—it probably didn’t occur to him that the snow-centered lyrics to the album’s title track would be just as applicable to Music City as it was to The City Of Brotherly Love. But here we are, in December of 2010—and, while Philly is enjoying a mild 37-degree morning with a few flakes of snow, Nashville is already covered in more than half a foot of it (with more on the way). That’s probably great news for all the “kids playing in the snow” Buono sings about in “Bright Lights Of Christmas,” but not such great news to anyone dealing with the numerous flight cancellations and road closures currently plaguing his new hometown. On the plus side, at least Buono’s given the city of Nashville a pleasantly carefree holiday song to listen to while stuck in traffic all morning.
