Getting Into the Holiday Spirit

It’s that time of year again when the streets are filled with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. People are frantically scouring the mall for the perfect gifts for their loved ones, and thousands of people will take planes, trains, and automobiles to visit family and friends. Kids will be writing letters to Old Saint Nick and worrying about whether or not they have been good enough this year to get that toy they really want.

Amongst all this chaos and merriment will be a constant stream of holiday music flowing out of mall loud speakers, car radios, and your neighbors’ mouths.

For those avid country music fans out there who want a little bit of everything that the genre and season have to offer—from warm, slow ballads to boot-kicking, booty-shaking numbers, from beautifully spiritual to hilariously self-deprecating, from cheery and festive to sad and haunting, and from classics to new hits—you are sure to find what really gets you into the holiday spirit in this country holiday playlist. Enjoy the music and the season! Happy Holidays!
