Darius Rucker, Children’s Choir Beautifully Deliver ‘Happy Xmas’ on 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ Special

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Darius Rucker brought Christmas to the 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special with a beautiful rendition of John Lennon’s ‘Happy Christmas (War Is Over).’

Backed by an angelic children’s chorus, Rucker’s smooth vocals perfectly complemented the sweet holiday song, which was written by Lennon and Yoko Ono and released in 1971.

The 47-year-old country star couldn’t have looked more dashing in a charcoal gray suit and a simple cross necklace. His performance was so simple, but the effect was truly magical, rendering sweet Christmas nostalgia in every viewer with the holiday favorite.

As Rucker finished ‘Happy Christmas,’ the singer gestured toward the chorus behind him, looking moved by the rousing applause at the 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ holiday event.
