Hardy’s performance of the Eagles original is now available for fans everywhere. The music video for “Please Come Home for Christmas” shows the “American Idol” alum sitting by a fireplace, playing the guitar.

“I’ve always had the Eagles version of this song on my playlists during the holidays,” Hardy said according to Sounds Like Nashville. “Especially with everything going on right now, there are going to be a lot of people missing family and loved ones this Christmas. So I wanted to make my own version of the song, and hope it lifts people up this year.”
