26-Country Christmas

Another day, another set of great Christmas shares from the deep collection of The Internet Archive. The theme today is Country music, and it's a great set of twangin' Christmas songs that will either set your toes to tappin' or your eyes to weepin', depending on the exact song playing at the moment. This is a bit different than the previous collection of Christmas on the Range, but that collection also featured some great country songs as well, so you can play the two sets together for even more enjoyment. I'm not sure why Christmas music and country music have such a strong connection, but it's an undeniable one, as you'll see. Please be my guest and enjoy a country Christmas!

I don't necessarily need another version of "Jingle Bells," but anything by a group named Bill Mooney and His Cactus Twisters has to be good.

Thanks again. I'll be listening to this tonight.

This proves that as long as the recordings are old enough, I can enjoy practially any genre. And why did country artists stop yodeling?

Ernie said...

Thanks folks!

Buster-I'm sure if you dig deep enough, there's a Cactus Twist record out there somewhere.

Geordie-Enjoy!

Moahaha-I don't think they've stopped yodeling, they just don't play that stuff on the radio. Dig deeper, I'm sure there are current artists with a yodel or two in their repertoire.

Love the yodeling "Skater's Waltz" as well as Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith. Good stuff.

No one ever said "Put Mass back into Christmas"... Well, except me, just now. Great-looking collection!
