Top Ten Country Christmas Singers
// Alan Jackson
Oh Alan. Nobody can sing "Let it be Christmas" like this guy. We actually don't have a Christmas CD of his, but I grew up listening to him sing Christmas on our computer. (once we got one ;P)
"Let it be Christmas", "Santa's Gonna Come in a Pickup Truck", "The Angles Cried", "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas", "Holly Jolly Christmas"
// Randy Travis
And of course, Randy has to be on this list. The way he sings "White Christmas Makes me Blue" is beautiful! we have a Christmas tape of his (plus many. many "normal" tapes *winks*) and sadly, it's beginning to get old. He no longer sounds like Randy. One of these days we're going to have to get it on CD.
"Winter Wonderland", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "Pretty Paper", "How do I wrap my Heart for Christmas", "Old Time Christmas"
// Clay Walker
"Mary did you Know", "Feliz Navidad", "Frosty the Snowman"
// Merle Haggard
"Santa Clause and Popcorn", "Silver Bells", "Grandma's Homemade Christmas Card", "If we Make it Through December" (grew up with this one - I think Alan Jackson also sings it),
// Reba McEntire
"On This Day", "Silent Night" (before she sings it she tells the story of how it came to be), "The Christmas Guest" (actually a story - not a song), "Happy Birthday Jesus", "A Christmas Letter", "This is my Prayer for You", "One Child, One Day", "Up on the Housetop", "The Angles Sang", "The Secret of Giving", "This Christmas", "Till the Season Comes 'Round Again"
(yeah, that's a lot)
// George Strait
"Merry Christmas Strait to You", "There's a New Kid in Town", "For Christ's Sake, It's Christmas", "What a Merry Christmas this Could Be", "Joy to the World", "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing", "Deck the Halls", "Old Time Christmas" (a different song than the one Randy Travis sings), "All I want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth)"
// Sammy Kershaw
"Daddy Stuff", "Christmas Time's 'A Comin' ", "Up on the Housetop", "We Three Kings", "Frosty the Snowman", "Winter Wonderland"
// Clint Black
"Looking for Christmas", "The Finest Gift", "Christmas for Every Boy and Girl", "The Birth of The King", "Slow as Christmas", "The Kid"
// John Denver
Sometimes we weaken and listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, but we usually wait for him. (but this year we didn't! *gasp*) His voice plays in the background of our lives. As we decorate the Christmas tree, as we open our gifts, John Denver is there to tell us it's really and truly Christmas.
Favorite Songs: *dies at the thought if all these wonderful songs*
"Christmas like a Lullaby", "Jingle Bells", "The Children of Bethlehem", "The First Noel", "Marvelous Toy", "Mary's Little Boy Child", "Little Drummer Boy", "Blue Christmas"... let's just say every song on his album called "Christmas like a Lullaby". *winks*
// Johnny Cash
I couldn't find a good picture of him by himself, so here is a picture of him and his wife. *smiles*
I remember the day when my mom bought the Johnny Cash Christmas CD that we own. Most of the "songs" are just him talking, but it sure gives me the "Christmas feeling" when I hear it.
"The Christmas Spirit", "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day", "Here was a Man", "Ringing the Bells for Jim", "We are the Shepherds", "Who Kept the Sheep"
And there you have it! *grins*
Do listen to any of these at Christmas time? (If you don't you should look them up)
What DO you listen to?
