Philadelphia Eagles Christmas Album Featuring the Kelce Brothers Hits No. 2 on Charts — Behind Taylor Swift The team's inaugural Christmas vinyl raised over $1.25 million in 2022.

The Chiefs beat the Patriots 27 to 17 on Sunday, putting them atop the AFC West standings. But the team's tight end, Travis Kelce, is No. 2 on another chart — and second to his girlfriend, billionaire Taylor Swift.

The Christmas album, A Philly Special Christmas, which features several Philadelphia Eagles players, Patti LaBelle, and the Kelce brothers, is No. 2 on the Billboard Vinyl Charts (for the deluxe edition) and No. 3 (for the regular 2023 edition).

Swift's vinyl, 1989 (Taylor's Version), is in the top spot for six weeks straight.

The Philadelphia Eagles released the second "A Philly Special Christmas" album this week, featuring Jason Kelce and Jordan Mailata, with an appearance by Grammy-award-winning icon Patti LaBelle, who joined the group for a rendition of the popular classic "This Christmas."

Jason's brother, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, is also on the album, joining his brother for the song, "The Fairy Tale of Philadelphia."

Jason Kelce plays at center for the Eagles and was named a People's Sexiest Man Alive finalist in 2023. He also co-hosts the popular "New Heights" podcast with Travis.

"I don't know if you could call what I did singing," Jason Kelce joked to ESPN about last year's album. "I'm very much just like a yeller in certain tones. There are some songs on there that I think are going to shock people, especially people who haven't heard Jordan Mailata sing."

Mailata, who plays offensive tackle, sounds incredible — like he could have won "The Voice" or "American Idol." And Kelce had fans in stitches with his low bass.

If they're looking for a post-NFL career, they might know who to call. Travis is dating superstar musician Taylor Swift.

In addition to being a singing legend, LaBelle has a popular pie company sold in Walmart and Target. The brand, Patti's Good Life, has grossed $200 million, per NBC.

The album will feature 11 songs, including a Kelce original aptly titled "Santa's Night." Vinyls cost $75, while a set with last year's costs $125.

It's also available on all streaming platforms.

Album proceeds will go to local organizations, including the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Children's Crisis Treatment Center.

Last year, the team raised an impressive $1.25 million for local charities.
