Christmas Music Playlists with Toby Keith Songs
Listen To Toby Unleashed On Christmas
Toby Keith is one of the most successful purveyors of country music today with a career that stretches back to the early 1990's. His bulging back catalogue includes 2 Christmas albums with his first, 1995's 'Christmas To Christmas', composed of 12 original songs - 4 of which he wrote or co-wrote. With artwork that depicts Keith driving his mount home to the ranch for the holidays amid a snowy backdrop this was Christmas as per the country songbook. That the singer opted to avoid all the tired old perennials that normally pockmark yuletide releases is a credit to his talent and a welcome shot in the arm for a Christmas soundtrack that doesn't seem to have moved all that much since the mid-80's.
So if you want to swap 'Merry Xmas Everybody' for something altogether newer you should try 'Christmas Rock' which comes equipped with enough party enhancements as to make even the dullest festive gathering feel like a joyful affair. 'Hot Rod Sleigh' is the album's true rib tickler that while obviously aimed at kids will also have the older members of the household grinning. Taken as a whole 'Christmas To Christmas' is a lot of fun for but the album's featured track and single 'Santa, I'm Right Here' is grounded in all too common reality. It was a big seller and was backed by a video that depicted life on the street over the holidays for a family who had fallen on hard times.
Toby's 'Christmas To Christmas' was followed up in 2007 with an epic 2-CD collection called 'A Classic Christmas'. While his debut festive LP consisted entirely of original material this 20-track collection was all about the country singer putting his stamp on the good and the great musical numbers of the season. While there are absolutely no surprises on show there is a nice divide between secular songs on one CD and religious on the other to give the listener plenty of balance depending on how they are feeling at any stage over the 12 days. With his country drawl working its magic throughout, a generally slow tempo and a lean musical accompaniment this was a perfect way to relax to Keith renditions of ‘Silent Night’, ‘Little Drummer Boy’, ‘Frosty The Snowman’ et al.
‘A Classic Christmas’ was promoted via a special live performance by Toby called ‘A Toby Keith Classic Christmas‘ on Country Music Television in November 2007. Performing many of the songs from his album he also enlisted Jewel for duets on 'Go Tell It on the Mountain' and an endearing reading of ‘The Christmas Song’.Author: Kevin
