Forget country, Scotty McCreery should sing Christmas songs at all times
I'm a Christmas song nut! NUT I say!
By the beginning of November, I've usually had Christmas music playing on my computer for a good week or two already. Drives everyone around me plum crazy. My favorite place to listen to holiday music before it hits local stations is AccuRadio, just in case you're a nut like me.
So this morning when I got a link to listen to Scotty's new holiday album 'Christmas with Scotty McCreery', I had to race over and listen.
Sigh. It's like drinking a just right cup of cocoa with extra marshmallows and a nip of peppermint Schnapps. Yes, it's that good. Scotty should definitely quit country and go on a permanent world-wide Christmas tour.
None of the songs are edgy or original, they're all standard Christmas fare (except maybe for Christmas in Heaven, not sure about that one), but Scotty and his voice definitely makes the standards stand out. My only complaint? There's no Little Drummer Boy, my favorite Christmas song of all. Not sure what everyone has against this song. Oh well, better luck next year I suppose.
If you're a Christmas song loon like me, definitely buy this CD. It hits stores October 16 (preorder here).
