Country music has been kind to Christmas or should that be Christmas has been kind to country music? Who knows but if you look back over the songs that have soundtracked the season down through the years a country and western influence has been ever present. With its homely disposition with tales of loneliness while fun takes places all around this particular strand of music often shines a spotlight on the less mentioned aspects of the season. Loretta Lynn's 'Christmas Without Daddy' is a perfect case in point where a huge cloud hangs over what should be an idyllic time as a father is stationed far away while his son and daughter pine for his warm embrace back home.

But this playlist of cracking country Christmas songs is anything but downcast with hugely merry contributions from Buck Owens on the ancient but endlessly bubbly 'Jolly Christmas Polka', Willie Nelson's finely judged 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer' and Eddy Arnold tumbling delight that is 'Jolly Old Saint Nicholas'. And what would any country Christmas mixtape be without the contribution from a cowboy or two? Step up to plate Roy Rogers and Gene Autry who must rank as the original of the species because it is impossible to think of either of them in anything other than a Stetson and a pair of spurs. With these songs in hand it will be easy to keep it country over the holidays.
