hunter brothers - joy to the world

Hunter Brothers Holiday Family Traditions

Every family has certain holiday traditions that they follow every year and the Hunter Brothers are no different! The boys from Shaunavon, Saskatchewan love to celebrate Christmas with their family and take a step back from their busy schedules to recharge for the new year.

2018 was a massive year for the Hunter Brothers. They performed at the CCMA awards, had a top 10 radio hit and released plenty of new music. As the clock winds down on 2018, we got an inside look at how the Hunter Brothers spend their holidays.

From Christmas dinners to dance parties, the Hunter Brothers share their holiday family traditions below!

Favourite Holiday Traditions

“Our favourite holiday traditions growing up often revolved around a lot of food. There were a lot of mouths to feed during Christmas (and any time of the year for that matter) and that number seems to be exponentially growing over the years!”

“On the 23rd, we would go to Mom and Dad’s for turkey dinner with all the fixings. Then on Christmas Eve, we would build puzzles, go to a Christmas candlelight service and follow it up by our annual oil and chocolate fondue.”


Favourite Holiday Memories

JJ – “Ski Trips with our cousins and our Jungle Jim Hunter (Olympic Bronze medalist in downhill racing) to Fernie which consisted of skiing and watching Flight Of The Navigator.”

Dusty – “Scrimmaging out on the rink after coming home from our respective hockey teams, and telling each other all the stories that had gone on during the season that year.”

Luke – “Sleeping under the Christmas tree, and dad making up stories and telling them until all hours of the night.”

Brock – “Receiving my new Honda CR250 dirt bike when I was 15.”

Ty – “Spontaneous dance parties in the living room with all the kids, going on the annual twinkle tour with my Grandma to the many homes in the metropolis of Shaunavon. Oh, and ALL THE FOOD – Cinnamon Buns, Caramel Corn, Sugar Cookies! You name it, I ate it!”


A day in the life of the Hunter family on Christmas

“We would go to bed under the tree on Christmas Eve and wake up to the smell of Mom’s homemade Cinnamon Buns.”

“Then we would read the Christmas Story, open stockings and presents, build more puzzles, and eat appetizers for Supper. Christmas was a riot every year!”


Favourite moments from 2018

“We had so many unforgettable moments from 2018, but some of the highlights that stood out would have to be:”

    • Performing on the CCMA live broadcast for the first time with Paul Brandt, Jess Moskaluke, and High Valley,
    • Singing on the main Stage at Country Thunder Saskatchewan for our first time
    • Recording the new record that we cannot WAIT to share with everyone


New Year’s Resolution

“Firstly, to come up with the best pranks we possibly can and successfully execute them on The Journey Tour. (Look out Paul, you don’t know what’s coming for ya!)”

“And furthermore, we would have to say growing more as family men and in all areas of our music career.  You can never remain stagnant in any field of your life, so we are looking forward to the opportunities that avail themselves each day that allow us to keep growing.  We absolutely cannot wait for what’s down the road in 2019!”
