It seems that I can't escape HANSON this week. Just yesterday, I was at O'Hare airport in Chicago, catching an early morning American Airlines flight to Los Angeles. On that flight were three familiar brothers and their band - fresh from a pair of shows at Chicago's House of Blues. In fact, I noted on Twitter that we'd even taken what was essentially the same picture - something you just have to do at O'Hare during the holidays, a Chicago tradition that recalls Home Alone. Today the first press release to hit my inbox was from HANSON's camp, spreading the word of their new music video and upcoming appearances. "Finally It's Christmas" is the title track from the group's second holiday album, one that's featured on my 2017 Ultimate Guide to New Release Holiday Music. See it below!

Last Fall, HANSON released their Mmmhops Pale Ale as the inaugural release from their Hanson Brothers Brewing Company, but for those wishing to get a sip of that tasty beverage, the options were limited - with it only being available in their home state of Oklahoma, or in select Midwestern markets. Today, that changes, as Mmmmhops is now available online, and the launch comes complete with a rockin' commercial. Check it out below...
