Let’s admit it, there really are a limited number of Christmas songs out there. There are plenty of artists to do the same songs in different ways, but eventually you have to admit you have probably heard almost every Christmas song in existence. That’s why every time I hear a new, original Christmas song that I actually like (because there are plenty of new ones I loathe) I dance a little dance of joy.
This was not one I was expecting to love as much as I do. A. I am not a big country music fan. B. While I do love them, how seriously can one take the Robertson family? C. I really, really am not a George Strait fan. Feel free to hate me for that. However, “Christmas Cookies” by Phil Robertson and George Strait ended up being one of my very favorite Christmas songs last year. The fact that I spent a month straight baking cookies may have had something to do with it…
All I ask is that you set aside your preconceived notions and give this song a fair shot. It is what it is. An adorable, sweet and fun Christmas song to/about his wife, Miss Kay. And I am not ashamed to admit it, Miss Kay is a bit of a hero to me.
What do you think of this one? A little too out there, or endearingly cute?
