Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer: Gene Autry

 
 

"Rudolph The Red Nosed reindeer" was the first Christmas song many of us learned as a child. And no one has ever done it like the original, Gene Autry. Christmas isn't Christmas without Rudolph!

Belleau Wood: Garth Brooks

 
 

Not exactly what you would call a "traditional" Christmas song, but it is so inspiring. This is a true story from World War One. If you've never heard this one, find it. It'll be a favorite of yours too!

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year: Andy Williams

 
 

Ok, Ok, I know. Andy Williams isn't exactly what you'd call "Country Artist". But hey, it's my list and I grew up with his show and his Christmas specials. And what a wonderful, smooth voice. Go ahead, drop Andy in between your favorite country artist's at Christmas time. He fits just fine. And this is one great holiday song!

Pretty Paper: Willie Nelson

 
 

You knew my Willie would be on the list. Willie wrote this and has been recorded by tons of people, from Roy Orbison to Toby Keith. But let's face it, there's only one Willie! Sit back, close your eyes and enjoy.

Labor Of Love: Randy Travis

 
 

The reason for the season? It is, of course, not Santa, not gifts, not egg nog. It's the birth of Jesus. Here, Randy Travis uses that beautiful voice to sing about just that. I love the very first line in the song..."It was not a silent night...". This should be on everyone's Christmas music list.

Little Drummer Boy: Johnny Cash

 
 

Actually, for me? I could fill all ten of these and a lot more with all Johnny Cash Christmas songs. But if I had to pick one, this would be it. That great Cash voice doing the "ba-rum-pah-bum-bum". Crank this one up loud and sing along!

White Christmas: Bing Crosby

 
 

Yes, this would be the second "non-country" artists on my Christmas list. But really, do you even have to ask? Christmas without Bing Crosby and "White Christmas"? Un-thinkable!

There's A New Kid In Town: Alan Jackson/Keith Whitley

 
 

There are a few different versions of this around, but this is the one I love best. While it's not a traditional Christmas tune, I think it perfectly fits the true meaning of Christmas. And Alan and Keith have voices that work so well together. Beautiful.

Away In A Manger: George Strait

 
 

Remember sitting in church on Christmas Eve and the congregation singing "Away In A Manger". Well, go ahead and sing along with the King of Country Music on this one. And when you do, you might want to have a tissue close by.

Silent Night: Alan Jackson

 
 

Ok, time for honesty: There are about a hundred version's of this song that could be number one on my list. This is my favorite Christmas song of all time, and I think Alan Jackson has one of the finest country music voices ever. So I just put those two things together and said "Yep, that's the one". Oh, and hey, have a blessed Christmas!
