Best Holiday Songs – Polly Wogg’s Top 6
Askmen.com ranked the 10 worst holiday songs of all time and no country artists made the list. The Glee Cast’s version of ‘Do You Hear What I Hear‘ came in at #8, which is understandable since men took the survey. The Chipmunks ‘Sleigh Ride‘ was #6 and ‘Do They Know it’s Christmas‘ by Band Aid was #3. Abba’s ‘Happy New Year‘ and Scott Weiland’s ‘Winter Wonderland‘ finished off the list. I can’t believe Elmo & Patsy’s ‘Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer’ or ’12 Days of Christmas’ didn’t make the list.
Instead of the worst songs, I thought I’d focus on the best holiday country Christmas songs. So here is my top 5.
I’ll Be Home For Christmas
Rascal Flatts sings my all time favorite Christmas song. Their acapella version makes me stop whatever I’m doing to listen, every time. Their harmonies are breathtaking. I can never hear this song enough.
Whatever Martina McBride sings is magic to the ears. She has one of the best female voices in not only country music, but any format. Her version of ‘White Christmas’ is a close second to Rascal Flatts. Both songs are on at our household every year.
This song is more about the story behind it. If you sit back and listen to the words of this song, it’ll bring a tear to your eye. It’s the true meaning of the season
Nuttin’ For Christmas
I love Sugarland and their holiday music is no different. Their version of ‘Nuttin for Christmas’ is my favorite holiday tune of theirs. It’s just so classic Sugarland.
It Won’t Be Christmas Without You
Brooks and Dunn
12 Redneck Days of Christmas
And what would Christmas be without a comedy tune. And Jeff Foxworthy is the King of country comedy. Although I’m not a fan of ‘The 12 Days of Christmas,’ Foxworthy’s ’12 Redneck Days of Christmas’ makes me smile.
