Classic Christmas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
For his third holiday album -- he releases one every decade, more or less like clockwork -- George Strait concentrates on the basics, something that's evident from the very title of Classic Christmas. There's not a new tune or obscurity among the album's ten songs, as Strait relies heavily on carols like "Silent Night," "Joy to the World," and "O Come, All Ye Faithful," adding a couple relatively newer standards like "Jingle Bells" and "Up on the Housetop" for balance.

Let It Snow!," "The Christmas Song," and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" -- songs that he pulled off nicely, but the simplicity of these standards is well suited for Strait's warm, easygoing touch. Indeed, Classic Christmas is quite warm and easygoing, a relaxed collection of gentle acoustic numbers and subdued Western swing ("Jingle Bells" and "Upon on the Housetop" benefit quite a bit from the latter) that feels as true to Strait's sound as it does to the spirit of the season.

    George Straight Christmas Albums are great!

    This George Straight Christmas CD has all the same music on it that the one Hallmark was selling exclusively last Christmas but with a different name. It was titled George Strait Fresh Cut Christmas. I still love his music he makes me smile.
