No. 38: Carrie Underwood, ‘Do You Hear What I Hear’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs
Country superstar Carrie Underwood is no stranger to Christmas material. Over the course of her relatively short (but explosive) career, she has recorded Christmas standards like ‘O Holy Night,’ ‘The First Noel’ and ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’ (the latter with Elvis Presley), but her rendition of the traditional ‘Do You Hear What I Hear’ is a standout, with Underwood’s powerful voice a perfect match for the big arrangement.
Recorded in 2007 for the ‘Hear Something Country Christmas’ compilation, she also performed ‘Do You Hear What I Hear’ in a much more countrified version on NBC during the 75th Annual Lighting of the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center that same year.
