Description

A fantastic mix of big name stars, lovingly selected lesser known names and songs never before available on CD, this hillbilly holiday anthology captures all the charm, spirit and good humor of traditional country music. With the warm, ebullient swing of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, the crisp, rhythmic authority of Hank Snow, dueling cuts by the staid Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe and the wild King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin, plus double shots of Faron Young and Little Jimmy Dickens, its a sure-to-please heapin helpin of downhome musical goodness. But mix in the irresistible novelty antics of Homer & Jethro and Lonzo & Oscar, honky tonk philosophers Ernest Tubb, George Jones and Kitty Wells, along with Kenny Roberts gorgeous ballad Christmas Roses and Benny Martins sly pop-country title track, this disc definitely decks the halls, country style.
