The Kelce brothers have come together to record their own version of The Pogues’ 'Fairytale Of New York' – titled 'Fairytale Of Philadelphia – and Shane MacGowan is impressed.
Jason Kelce, recruited Travis for the track featured on the Philadelphia Eagles holiday album, 'A Philly Special Christmas Special.' Their version changes a few lyrics to fit the Philadelphia theme.
The brothers' cover of the track – originally recorded by Kirsty MacColl and Shane MacGowan of The Pogues – has caught the attention of Shane's wife, Victoria Mary Clarke, who described it as "Not a bad version!" on X
A post on Shane MacGowan's X account shares the video as he says: "Tell them I am knocked out".
