Given his predilection towards Christmas and his position as the ‘singing cowboy’ it is no surprise that Gene Autry should make a couple of contributions to our cowboy Christmas songs list. And a couple of minutes in the company of his ‘Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ will convince you that Autry was just at home in the studio as on the ranch. Like all of the songs that appear on this playlist the integral quality tendered by Autry is a homespun charm and the embodiment of traditional values. So John Denver’s acoustic ‘Christmas For Cowboys’ opens our collection to perfection. If anyone needs reminding, the priority for cowboys is that the herd is managed even on Christmas day. The spoken word ‘Cowboy’s Prayer’ from Jimmy Dean is equally honest and religious in tone recalling a Christmas where hard work was put aside for calm reflection come December 25th.

While it is easy to fall back on old time cowboy Christmas songs we’ve included several contemporary numbers that offer a lighter touch than their older siblings. So the Bellamy Brothers ‘Jingle Bells (A Cowboys Holiday)’ and Moe Bandy’s ‘Cowboy Christmas’ have a lightness of touch without ever losing sight of what it is like to be a cowboy at Christmas. Johnny Cash held cowboy’s in high esteem and on his huge catalogue of country tunes he always found time to give the humble cowboy a decent airing. So it only seems fair that his ‘Little Drummer Boy’ would make it onto a list – can’t you just picture him under that black Stetson dreaming of life back on the range?
