No. 49: Reba McEntire, ‘Up on the Housetop’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs
Reba McEntire has recorded fine versions of songs like ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Christmas Guest,’ but we chose this song from her 1999 ‘Secret of Giving’ album because she manages to recreate a Christmas classic without getting too far away from the arrangement we all know and love.
McEntire’s spirited version of song No. 49 on the Top 50 Country Christmas Songs list is thick with guitar and Nashville twang. You won’t find this song on a pop station, and that’s fine with us. Many country stations still spin this song come Christmas time, even over a decade after its release.
