Top 50 Country Christmas Songs
Christmas songs are like side dishes at a holiday dinner. Most country fans like the standards, while a few other specialty treats. Others we simply put up with to be polite, and a select few are absolutely intolerable. You’ll may find one or two of those cuts on this list of the Top 50 Country Christmas Songs of all time. Remember, even if you can’t stand it, there is someone nearby whose Christmas won’t be complete until they hear their favorite on radio.
This list of the top country Christmas songs was compiled by blending staff opinion, reader feedback and airplay and sales data (when available). As with all Taste of Country countdowns, there is a strict ‘one song per artist’ rule at play here, meaning you’ll only find George Strait, Dolly Parton and Alan Jackson one time.
Songs that have become as dependable as Grandma’s gravy find their way to the top of this list. Other hits by new artists like Taylor Swift can be found too, but an ability to transcend generations is necessary for a song to be called the best.
