Erica Nicole lights up the holiday season with her sophomore Christmas single, "Come on a Sleigh Ride." The heartwarming tune was released to radio on Monday, November 5th.

Showing off her upbeat vocals, "Come on a Sleigh Ride" was a collaborative effort between Erica Nicole and renowned producer, Michael Lloyd. Not only has Lloyd accumulated in excess of 100 gold and platinum records, but he was responsible for recording artist Kimberly Locke's #1 Christmas hits for three consecutive years.

"Christmas is always a great time for music," said Michael. "I hope everyone loves Erica's single as much as I do."

Two-time Grammy nominee and award-winning songwriter, Johnny Tillotson is also a featured vocalist on Come on a Sleigh Ride.

"It's great to have someone that's not only a friend, but also a legendary performer featured on the single," said Erica. "The line 'moving like poetry in motion' was brought to life in this song through Johnny's vocals and inspired by his hit single in 1961, "Poetry In Motion.""

Erica is no stranger to Christmas tunes. She was invited to perform her debut Christmas single, "Little St. Nick," at the Macy's Great Tree Lighting in Atlanta, GA alongside American Idol country music sensation, Scotty McCreery in 2011. Erica put a unique spin of The Beach Boys classic, featuring Jeffrey Foskett (music director to The Beach Boys and Brian Wilson), as a background vocalist.

Erica Nicole's self-titled pioneer album raised the interest of country radio across the nation. The sophomore single, "What You Think About Us," reached #1 on the Indie World Chart and stayed at #1 for 2 weeks on the New Music Weekly Chart. "Come on a Sleigh Ride" is sure to rev up listeners for her new album release in January coupled with a full-fledged radio tour. With over 30,000 fans on social media platforms alone, Erica is quickly building her fan base and making her name known in the industry. The single is currently available for download via CDBaby and iTunes.
