Christmas Time's A-Comin' (Emmylou Harris)

Country music has spread its wings from its traditional beginnings to encompass other genres and in the process attract a new audience. Country Rock is one such sub-genre that has been embraced by such behemoths as the Band and the Eagles, both of whom are represented on our Country Rock Christmas songs playlist. To make matters even more confusing the Eagles chose to turn Charles Brown’s blues orientated ‘Please Come Home For Christmas’ into their own particular brand of country rock. It has that pining nature, so prominent in country music, down to a tee but with a wild spirit so redolent of rock songs held in check for a change. The Band’s ‘Christmas Must Be Tonight’ featured on their odds and ends 1977 release ‘Islands’ and it twinned the slow march instrumentation with a softly focused religious bent that celebrates the birth of Jesus. What ties all of these songs together is the general reflective approach taken by each of the featured artists which includes Bob Dylan’s ‘Little Drummer Boy’. While his vocals have now morphed into a smokey drawl there is genuine warmth in his retelling of the oft heard and much loved carol.
