No. 35: Jeff Foxworthy, ‘Redneck 12 Days of Christmas’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy took his signature “You might be a redneck if… ” act in a holiday direction with ‘Redneck 12 Days of Christmas‘ from the 1996 album, ‘Crank It Up: The Music Album.’
Written with Tim Wilson, the track is a countrified spoof of ‘The 12 Days of Christmas.’ The song celebrates the simple joys of “Five flannel shirts / Four big mud tires / Three shotgun shells / Two hunting dogs / And some parts to a Mustang GT.”
The song peaked at No. 18 in 1996 and had such staying power that it actually charted again every holiday season for several subsequent years.
