No. 33: Lady Antebellum, ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs
Before Lady Antebellum scored their first No. 1 hit with ‘I Run to You’ in 2009, they had a Christmas hit in 2008 with their rendition of ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside,’ which they also performed on ‘The Today Show.’
Playing up the vocal chemistry between Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, the track is decidedly more straight country than the country-pop hits the band have mostly been associated with.
In a mostly straight reading of the song, the instruments provide a perfect bed for the vocals — topped off by a nice accent of pedal steel that’s like a Christmas present in itself.
