It is Time, “Let it Be Christmas”

It is time! “Let it Be Christmas”, it is officially that time of the year! The most wonderful time of the year! Temperatures are dropping, sales are banging and families are planning. Indeed, it is Christmas time! And, it is the time to put together your perfect country Christmas songs playlist.

Need help? Do not fuzz, we are here to help! Apparently, you do not lack options. To make it easier for you, we have filed in on an Album that you definitely need to include on your playlist. Composed of 11 songs (“O Come All Ye Faithful”, “Jingle Bells”, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”, etc.), these tunes instantly signal the Christmas season.

Let It Be Christmas”, his eleventh studio album and second Christmas album, is from American country music artist Alan Jackson. Different from his first album of Christmas music (1993’s Honky Tonk Christmas), this mainly has renditions of traditional Christmas music. The title track, one of two Christmas songs composed by Jackson, was a Top 40 hit for Jackson on the Hot Country Songs charts.

Undoubtedly, from the very first spin of Alan Jackson’s 2002 Christmas song,  it went beyond the standards. Firstly, his warm, strong, fatherly voice was like a plate of freshly baked gingerbread cookies. A gentle acoustic guitar accompanies a story that sneaks into a lesson of morality.

Because it is an original, “Let It Be Christmas” is among the number 1 list of many top country Christmas songs of all time. It seemed instantly timeless. On the same year, it charted as well. This was something very difficult to do with a swarm of new songs and covers each season. The entire album is a project that is worth keeping close come December 25.

Here’s a Beautiful Cover of “Silent Night” 

As one of the most covered songs, “Silent Night” is one of the tunes where everybody has their personal favorite version. I must say Alan Jackson’s cover definitely deserves a serious listen. With just the right amount of nylon guitar and country twang, Jackson conveys a beautifully low key version just like the original melody.
