No. 28: Loretta Lynn, ‘Country Christmas’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs

Loretta Lynn Country Christmas
MCA Nashville

Loretta Lynn based many of her best songs on her own early life experiences, and her 1966 Christmasclassic ‘Country Christmas’ is one of them.

Celebrating the simple holiday joys of an otherwise hardscrabble life of poverty, Lynn sang, “A good old country Christmas / That’s what it’s gonna be / With all the family gathered ’round our pretty Christmas tree.”

Musically, the track is down-home classic country, pulling Lynn’s unique vocal style front and center. ‘A Country Christmas’ is the only holiday-themed album of Lynn’s 50-year career, which makes its title song worth including in the Top 50 Country Christmas Songs list.
