Okay guys, confession time. I LOVE country music. Like, I have a deep and intense obsession with it in fact. I don’t always love the new stuff, I stick to classic country mostly, but I would be remiss if I did not post my favorite Country Christmas Playlist. If you want to follow/read about my other 2 Christmas playlists, you can find them here and here.
Here are two albums you are sure to find on my Country Christmas Playlist.
First, Scotty McCreery’s Christmas album!
Here’s a fun fact for you! Scotty McCreery is the one and only famous person I’ve ever seen in concert. He is amazing!! So naturally, I love his Christmas album! Definitely my favorite song on the album is this one. “It’s time to let go and let the love in.”
Then there’s George Strait’s Christmas album.
Inserting all the heart eyes for this man. There is a reason George Strait is the king of country. All these songs are amazing, but my favorite is this one for sure.
But my all time favorite Country Christmas album is the Bar J Wranglers Christmas album.
Unfortunately for all of us, this album is not on Spotify (so you won’t actually find it on my playlist that I’ll link below). The Bar J Wranglers perform in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and they are a family favorite for me. I can’t remember a single Christmas in my ENTIRE LIFE that I have not listened to this album over and over. I have every word to every song memorized. I know the order the songs play on the CD. For your sakes, I am going to link more than one song, because NO country playlist would be complete without this gem. You’re welcome.
Those are the only two I can find on YouTube! *sigh* But you can buy the CD here! Seriously the best.
I have quite a few noteworthy singles on this playlist too.
“Let it be Christmas” by Alan Jackson
I don’t know why I can’t listen to this song without getting choked up. Alan Jackson is so talented, and this song just sums up the change that Christmas time can bring upon the earth. Wonder why Christmas is such a magical time? Because for a season we can put aside our differences and turn our hearts to our only true source of light, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
“O Come All Ye Faithful” by Sara Evans
I think Sara Evans is a very underrated female country artist. I love her voice! There is a certain depth to it that is missing from some other female country artists today. I absolutely LOVE her rendition of this classic Christmas carol.
“I’ll Be Home for Christmas” by Rascal Flatts
I am not the biggest fan of Rascal Flatts, but this hits me more than any other version of this song. I love that it’s a capella. It honestly just tugs at my heart strings! I can’t help but cry when I listen to them sing and imagine everyone who will not be home for Christmas this year.
“Go Tell It On The Mountain” by Dolly Parton
I typically like to stick with threes, but I could not leave this one out of the post. I mean come on, it’s Dolly!! I love her voice. I love her version of this classic carol! Just give it a listen and try not to smile or shout “Amen!” Can’t I just have her voice??
