This collection easily lives up to its name by featuring a stellar lineup of musicians performing time-honored holiday songs. Tammy Wynette sets the mood with a gorgeous rendition of "White Christmas," followed by Elvis Presley's signature take on "Blue Christmas." Dolly Parton sings achingly of a "Hard Candy Christmas," while Willie Nelson contributes his own classic tune, "Pretty Paper." Willie's dear friend Johnny Cash lends his unmistakable baritone voice to an excellent 1959 version of "The Little Drummer Boy," in which the Man in Black leaves the "a-rum-pa-pa-pum" refrain to his back-up singers. Elsewhere, Emmylou Harris saunters through "Christmas Time's A-Comin'," and Buck Owens offers up his humorous "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy." Although many of these recordings were made before 1980, country of the late '80s and early '90s is represented by artists such as Randy Travis, Dwight Yoakam, and the Judds.
