Multi-award winner Jimmy White Makes Holiday Chart Magic with “I Wish You Peace”
Jimmy White’s holiday single “I Wish You Peace,” leads the way in the second week of December. The song made a huge 50-plus chart move on the Mediabase AC chart, became a Top-Five on monitored KWAV, was ranked number-one “most added” at Hot AC for New Music Weekly, and pulled in a huge Mediabase/Billboard station in WLDB Milwaukee.
Although not written to be a holiday song, this solid, radio-friendly hit has become an annual staple. “I heard this melody in my head, went downstairs to write it, and my promoter, Larry Weir, fell in love with it so we cut it in three days,” says Jimmy. “Thankfully, this song has become a perennial fixture at many radio stations and video outlets across the nation.” The single debuted as the #1 Most Added on the New Music Weekly and AC Mediabase charts while White’s “Hard Ride” continues its success on the charts at #3 on the Independent Music Network Country Top 30 chart and #5 on the Mainstream Top 30 Chart.
“Hard Ride,” off White’s 26 song, double disc album Two Cities, describes the classic battle between the wants and needs when Jimmy meets a woman he thinks can mend
his road worn heart. Recorded in both Buffalo, NY and Nashville, TN, Two Cities as Jimmy describes, was a musical civil war when compiling the songs for the album. “Both great, both unique, but from two different planets,” explains Jimmy. “Buffalo is Northeast, gritty, in your face, simple and real, while Nashville is genteel, polite, polished and masterfully professional.”
Along with his chart success, Jimmy’s video for “Good Friends Are Hard to Find” has reached more than 51,000 views on YouTube. Jimmy wrote and recorded the song for the Bella Moss Foundation’s compilation CD Bands 4 Bella, raising awareness for pet owners and veterinarians about the dangers of MRSA infections in pets.

Two Cities was released on 828 Records and is now available on iTunes.
