Overview

Neal McCoy, Clay Walker, and Kenny Rogers are the biggest names contributing to this holiday-themed collection, but despite Walker's two solid tracks -- the jovial "Cowboy Christmas" and a hot, Bakersfield-style take on "Blue Christmas" -- the show is stolen by some relative newcomers and '70s superstar Don Williams, who once dominated the charts with the kind of gently rolling, lullabye-like meditations he offers here in the tender-hearted "Pretty Little Baby Child." The Johnny Staats Project checks in with a couple of bluegrass gems -- the new "Christmas Mandolin" and the standard "What Child Is This," that feature piercing, high lonesome vocals and breathtaking acoustic soloing. To the field of Christmas-themed truckin' songs, Keith Harling adds a gem in "Santa's Got A Semi," which envisions Saint Nicholas making his rounds in an 18-wheeler.
