Joe Bonamassa Premieres "Lonesome Christmas" Music Video

Joe Bonamassa has premiered a new Christmas song, a catchy, up-tempo blues rocker called "Lonesome Christmas." He and his band even made a music video to go with it, and you can check it out below.

The song is available as a free download here.

For every individual download of the song through December 25, Bonamassa will donate money to the Keeping the Blues Alive (KTBA) foundation, a non-profit he founded in 2011 to promote the heritage of the blues, fund music scholarships and supplement the loss of music education in public schools.

Bonamassa’s goal is to raise $25,000; every individual download will help get him closer to that goal.

As always, tell us what you think of the song and video in the comments below or on Facebook. For starters, we appreciate his personalized Gibson Les Paul and his scrumptious Les Paul tone. Do you agree?
