Original Air Date: December 8, 2013
A jaded rock star, in order to repair his tarnished image, publicly agrees to fulfill a kid's Dear Santa Christmas wish. To his dismay, he ends up agreeing to spend the holidays in small town America and performing in the local holiday Christmas concert. He's mortified at the prospect of staying in the home of an idyllic, close-knit family but soon realizes the true value in what they have – love, caring and a memorable holiday spirit.
Jaded rock star Dax is found by New York paparazzi passed out in his car with a frozen holiday turkey in the passenger seat. In order to repair his tarnished image, Dax publicly agrees to grant a fan's "Dear Santa" Christmas wish. To his dismay, his manager Jason drops Dax off in Cedar Grove, a Midwest small town, where he's committed to spend a week and perform in a local holiday Christmas concert. At first, Dax is horrified to be stuck in the Reverend Harding family's home with strict rules and a curfew. But he soon becomes charmed by the Reverend's wife Lynne, teenage son Tim and very surprised contest winner and daughter Kelly, a sassy, unemployed book jacket writer. Dax begins to appreciate what the Hardings have as a family – love, caring and an uplifting holiday spirit. The movie features an original musical duet by Lachey and Porter, entitled "You."
Drew Lachey plays a jaded rock star determined to restore his image by fulfilling a kid’s Christmas wish. But things go south, or in this case north, when the wish means he’s supposed to perform at a small town Christmas concert.
The movie also stars country singer-actress Mackenzie Porter as Lachey’s love interest.
