No. 26: Luke Bryan, ‘Run, Run Rudolph’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs

Luke Bryan Run Run Rudolph
Capitol Nashville

Out of all the many, many renditions of the Christmas classic ‘Run, Run Rudolph’ that have been recorded over the decades, Luke Bryan’s 2008 release is the second-highest-charting, behind only the definitive recording by Chuck Berry.

Johnny Marks wrote the song in 1958; ironically, though Marks was Jewish, he made a career out of writing Christmas songs, also penning other holiday classics like ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,’ ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’ and ‘A Holly Jolly Christmas.’ Berry popularized the track for all time, but Bryan’s rockin’, good-time version also hit the charts at No. 42 and became a hit.
