No. 4: Gene Autry, ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs

Columbia Records

This is one of the best-selling records of all time, and certainly one of the most timeless Christmas classics you’ll hear on the radio this year. A Christmas without Rudolph is like Christmas dinner without dessert. It just doesn’t feel complete until you have both.

Yes, song No. 4 on the Top 50 Country Christmas Songs countdown is over 60 years old. The singing cowboy had a strong career by the time it was released in 1949, but this would become his first chart-topper in country music and only career No. 1 on the all-genre charts. Many have re-cut ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,’ but even the younger generations come to agree that the original is still best.
