Ten Country Christmas songs to try not to hate

So you haven't finished your holiday shopping. Perhaps, in fact, you haven't even started it. Don't you feel bad about yourself? Hey, there's still plenty of time to order gift cards, which you know your folks want anyway. Cabela's, Bass Pro Shops, Mills Fleet Farm. Easy!
