My Top Five Favorite Country Christmas Songs
You know it’s the music that makes the season bright, and there’s nothing like a few good Country Christmas Songs to really get you in the spirit of the Holiday.
Everyone has their favorites, so I figured I would put together a list of my Top 5 favorite Country Christmas Songs. I hope a few are your favorites too.
Before Lady Antebellum scored their first No. 1 hit with ‘I Run to You’ in 2009, they had a Christmas hit in 2008 with their rendition of ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside,’ which they also performed on ‘The Today Show.’
Country superstar Carrie Underwood is no stranger to Christmas material. Over the course of her explosive career, she has recorded Christmas standards like ‘O Holy Night,’ ‘The First Noel’ and ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’, but her rendition of the traditional ‘Do You Hear What I Hear’ is a standout.
Talk about sounding "old school" or "retro". Brett picks up where Bing Crosby, Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Ray Charles left off — by adding that swing and that soul to a great selection of Christmas Classic's from his debut Holiday album, "Glow".
George Strait didn’t release his most well-known Christmas song on any of his own holiday albums. ‘Christmas Cookies’ can only be found on compilation albums, like ‘A Country Superstar Christmas III’ and ‘A Country Christmas’ from 1999. Song. This song is an instant classic, and perhaps the only well-known tribute to cookies. Warning, once you hear this song, it'll be stuck in your head till at least Christmas Day.
Darius Rucker is certainly a gifted vocalist having proven that in both rock and, country. But with ‘Candy Cane Christmas,’ Rucker channeled his inner Sinatra for a vocal performance that is so different from anything else he’s done. Recorded in 2009 for a compilation titled ‘Now That’s What I Call Christmas. I love this holiday song, and you know we love the Darius, that's why it's #1 on my list.
