December 13, 2019 - The best original Christmas song of the decade has arrived just in time for the 2019 Holiday Season. 308 GHOST TRAIN released the timeless, soon to be classic single “Santa Bought a Yacht,” on 308 Records complete with an official music video on November 29, 2019; sending a clear message to all Santa lovers that Christmas will never be the same again! “Santa Bought A Yacht” is a fun and memorable song to add to your Christmas playlist to get Grandma dancing and the kids singing by the tree. Bluesy-rockabilly guitar chords sprinkled with warming piano riffs and Santa’s sleigh bells maintain the holiday cheer.

Anthony “Train” Caruso’s sense of humor and light-heartedness comes through to round out this family-friendly track with a little bit of naughtiness in the lyrics for the adults jamming along... let’s see who catches the reference to Rudolph picking up a DUI from the Sheriff! The official music video for “Santa Bought A Yacht” takes place on the tranquil Florida beaches after Santa has traded in his sleigh and laid off his trusty team of elves in exchange for a fancy yacht and some hot babes to cruise with.

“Santa Bought a Yacht” is a catchy sing-along musical journey with a pinch of southern rock, a shake of blues and a dash of rockabilly to take us through the 2019 Holiday Season with joy in our hearts. The perfect combination of piano and guitar maintain a sense of play to keep the family satiated as presents are unwrapped. 308 GHOST TRAIN’s new EP, Born in the Wild, was released on June 18th, 2019, featuring 5 live songs.
