After nearly 20 years of waiting for a new Christmas CD from Randy Travis, as always, Randy makes a superb CD. If you like traditional country music, you'll love this CD. Randy has his own traditional style of music that you can't help but enjoy. It's a great CD from start to finish. The music is classical Christmas songs but with Randy's style. It's an awesome CD.

Are you looking for the traditional Christmas songs as “there’s No Place Like home for the Holidays,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let it Snow?” Are you looking for the Christian tunes such as “Away in a Manger,” “The First Noel,” or “Little town of Bethlehem?” Or are you looking for something new? They’re here!!! First, you will note even the traditional songs are not as traditional as one might thing, with many of the songs having been re-arranged by Randy. A couple that particularly stand out are two of my favorites “Angels We Have Heard on High” and “Oh Holy Night.” Then there is Joy to the World” which is like no other offering I’ve ever heard. The vocals, with Randy’s rich baritone and a choir-like vocal background are terrific as is the musical instrumentation accompanying the CD. Randy performs three new songs on the CD “Labor of Love,” “Nothin’s gonna Bring me Down at Christmas Time” and “Our King.” “Labor of Love” is a beautifully performed song and although it starts out somewhat graphically and you wonder where it is going lyrically, one listen will tell you it is a song you’ll probably find yourself playing again and again. “Nothin’s Gonna bring me Down at Christmas Time” is an up-tempo song almost reminding one of the tongue-and-cheek songs Randy so often does on his CDs. It is about trials and tribulations that could bring you down during the holidays if you choose to let them. “Our King” written by Randy once again shows his unique writing ability wrapping up the CD with almost somewhat of a tribute to our Lord. I don’t believe they could have ended with a more touching song. The one thing that I noted about the CD is unlike many other artists and Christmas CDs, Randy offers more than one verse on many songs, sometimes performing three verses. If you’re truly looking for something to put some merriment in your Christmas, some joy in your New Year, this CD’s for you.
