Opryland's Country Christmas

type
  • TV Show
Genre

Old-fashioned but brand-new, Opryland’s Country Christmas reminds you why holiday albums recorded by country-music artists are almost invariably more satisfying than those cut by pop or rock stars: Country singers are more accustomed to getting all sentimental without becoming soppy about it. Thus Opryland’s Country Christmas, filmed on location throughout Nashville, offers zippy renditions of lots of traditional Christmas tunes and several striking original numbers performed by the likes of Tanya Tucker, Clint Black, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, and Tammy Wynette. The hands-down high point: Emmylou Harris trilling thrillingly through a beautiful Christmas song, ”Light of the Stable,” written by Nova Scotia songwriters Steven and Elizabeth Rhymer. B+
