Do you hear what I hear?
Advent calendars are inching ever closer to Christmas and the sounds of the season are in the air. Whether it's the ringing of the Salvation Army bell or door-to-door carolers, it's at least starting to sound a lot like Christmas.
To get in on the holiday spirit, Patch is creating playlists of Christmas music each day to help spread the cheer.
So here's the deal:
Each day, from today through Christmas, we'll feature a uniquely different, themed Christmas music playlist. Today's theme is Country Christmas. Put on your cowboy hat—or Santa hat, if you'd prefer—and get in line to dance.
With holiday staples from the likes of Gene Autry, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash to newer selections by Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and Faith Hill, there's a bit of fun and a whole lot of holiday warmth and cheer. And we promise, unlike Friday's edition you won't have to listen to David Hasselhoff narrating T'was the Night Before Christmas.
You can listen here, free and legally (via Spotify), without leaving Patch!
But we also want your input. Post in the comments what you'd like to see in future installments. The themes are as follows:
- Dec. 18: Classic Rock Christmas: From Chuck Berry and Beach Boys to Springsteen and Seger, plenty of icons have tackled the holidays.
- Dec. 19: Alternative Christmas (newer rock/folk/indie/alternative Christmas songs, including new-school variations of old-school classics)
- Dec. 20: Pop Christmas (Top 40-style Christmas songs)
- Dec. 21: Gaudy/Obnoxious Christmas songs (Because even the musical equivalent of an ugly sweater deserves its day)
- Today: Country Christmas (Christmas selections with a tad of twang)
- Dec. 23: Hollywood Christmas (Songs you know from Christmas movies)
- Dec. 24: Traditional Christmas (The time-tested standards)
- Dec. 25: Children's Christmas (Singing rodents can apply within)
