" It's funny how going back can get you back to where you belong.
It's the difference between just a melody and my favorite Christmas song. "
The fireplace is lit, the snow is falling, and sleigh bells echo in the distance it's Christmas, and it's time to come home.
Thirty-five-year-old Heath Sawyer has finally made it to the big-time as a country music star. After a year full of the kind of success he could only dream of, it's December 23, and he's headlining a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. It's only as the lights on the stage go down and the Christmas lights outside come on that Heath realizes there's just one place he wants to be for the holidays: back home in Okmulgee, Oklahoma.
But journeying anywhere on Christmas Eve is never easy, and with flight delays, inclement weather, and the unexpected company of a feisty young woman who's about to become his traveling companion, Heath will need a Christmas miracle to make his way home in time to open presents.
Filled with touching anecdotes inspired by the real holiday memories of Blake Shelton and Dorothy Shackelford, "Time for Me to Come Home" is a sweet and funny story that celebrates the spirit of Christmas and the true meaning of finding your way back home.
Sometimes the best gift on Christmas is sharing it with the ones you love.
