Christmas Music Monday: Christmas In the Country
“Monday, Monday. So good to me. Monday, Monday. It was all I hoped it would be.” How has your Monday been so far? Is it all you hoped it would be? Probably not (poor Monday gets such a bad rap), but I know how to make it better!!
It’s Christmas Music Monday again and today I have some great Country tunes to get your toes tapping and your hearts happy!

Once Upon a Christmas by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Let’s face it. Kenny and Dolly are like peanut butter and jelly–they just go together! Even though it’s not a new album, it’s still a good one. And hearing the “Hosannas” in the title song still gives me chills!
Beyond the Season by Garth Brooks. This is another oldie, but it has some gorgeous songs on it. “The Gift” and “The Friendly Beasts” are well worth listening to.
Christmas by Alabama. Alabama is one of those quintessential country groups. I’ve heard a lot of versions of “Tender Tennessee Christmas,” but theirs is still one of the very best!
The Music of Christmas by Steven Curtis Chapman. I’ll just be honest, I don’t think there is anything he sings that ever sounds bad. This is a wonderful album to have and the song “Going Home For Christmas” holds a special memory for me. I’ll have to tell you about it sometime!
A Very Country Christmas by Various Artists. This isn’t new, but it gets great reviews and features people like Carrie Underwood, Sara Evans, Brad Paisley, and Jake Owen. I think I’d like to have it!
On This Winter’s Night by Lady Antebellum. They have a great sound, so I have to imagine their Christmas album is just as good as everything else they do!
Now it’s your turn. Do you like country music? What’s your favorite country Christmas song?
