Ten Country Christmas songs to try not to hate

Kenny Chesney - "All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan"

You've seen Chesney in his sleeveless shirts and puca shell necklaces. I think he got his wish.

Brenda Lee - "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"

At 4'9", I don't know if it was the petite size or the premature stardom of Little Miss Dynamite that's always kinda creeped me out. In any case, this song's essential.

Gene Autry - "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"

Originally written for a children's coloring book, Autry's 1949 version of this song remains the standard. Is it because of the singer's awesomely colorful, fringed and embroidered shirts? His even cooler boots? Probably.

Reba McEntire (popularized by Trisha Yearwood) - "It Wasn't His Child"

First thought that comes to mind? Well, duh. Second? Sorry - this song's gonna make you wanna puke.

Merle Haggard - "If We Make It Through December"

ONLY TWO MORE WEEKS! Until we have the massive buildup then disappointment that is New Year's Eve, that is. You can make it!
