Editors’ Notes

George Strait's Classic Christmas was originally released in 2006, exclusive only to Hallmark Gold Crown stores. But thanks to the festive folks at MCA Nashville, Classic Christmas has been reissued for more people to enjoy. Consider it a sequel to Strait's 1999 holiday hayride Merry Christmas Wherever You Are. Much like that album, Classic Christmas blends Santa Claus-steeped standards like "Jingle Bells," "O Christmas Tree" and "Deck The Halls" with more spiritual-based carols like "Silent Night," "We Three Kings" and "O Come, All Ye Faithful." But where Strait's first holiday album contained more secular tunes that went well with cookies and eggnog, Classic Christmas leans harder on the devotional standards that go better with candles and hymnals. And like the album's predecessor, Strait dresses these winter ditties with classically twangy country music trimmings. Dig the fiddles and high-lonesome harmonies on "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing" or the western swing vibe on "Up On The Housetop."

Customer Reviews

Incorrect

This was not released last year. This was released November 2006 as Fresh Cut Christmas and only available at Hallmark stores at that time. It has been repackaged and retitled. Not a bad cd but on this particualr cd, George is doing christmas carols not christmas songs.

real nice like

how can you not love anything that george strait does?????? perfect for a southern christmas!

A triumphant, if brief, Christmas album from King George

This was actually released in 2006 as Hallmark's annual exclusive Christmas album under a different title [thanks, proview, for correcting that]. It has been retitled and given new album art, but the songs are the same. They go by quickly, but George is clearly having fun and so will you. If you like George Strait or Christmas music, do not hesitate to buy this album. This is a great companion piece to George's earlier Christmas albums, "Merry Christmas Strait To You" and "Merry Christmas Wherever You Are." Completists should also add the song 'Christmas Cookies' to their Strait Christmas library.
