Country music icon, Loretta Lynn has been in the country music business for decades. With that said, she has only released two-holiday albums. Those albums were released 50 years apart from each other. Moreover, those two Christmas albums are regarded as some of the best to ever grace country music.
History of the Song
Lynn’s 1966 Christmas album was appropriately titled Country Christmas. The album was named after one of the tracks, the track was written entirely by her. It is all about the foods, decorations, and people that make a Christmas “country”.
The peppy, upbeat tune has been a fan-favorite for years. That’s the reason why Loretta Lynn decided to revive it for her second Christmas record. The album titled White Christmas Blue was released in 2016. It contained a mix new recordings and remakes of tracks Lynn previously sang.
“Country Christmas” was one of the songs Loretta Lynn chose to record again when it came time to construct White Christmas Blue. The new recording is just as delightful as the last one. It’s not surprising that it comes with a video to match!
During the 2016 Christmas season, Loretta Lynn shared a few videos with her fans to celebrate the release of White Christmas Blue. One of those videos captured the country legend singing “Country Christmas” with some help from John Carter Cash on guitar.
John Carter Cash’s involvement in the video wasn’t random at all. As the son of the great Johnny Cash and June Carter, he has known Lynn for some time. The two have worked together many times in recent years. He even co-produced White Christmas Blue along with Lynn’s daughter, Patsy.
About the Video
The music video Lynn and Cash filmed for “Country Christmas” is as cute as a bug’s ear. Given that, Loretta Lynn was looking lovable as ever. She wore a festive red jacket and clutched a Christmas book while she sat in her cozy rocking chair. Seated in a chair next to her, while a Christmas tree with old-fashioned decorations served as the backdrop, Cash plays the guitar.
