There's something about these songs that makes me feel all warm and cozy — like I'm already home and snuggled in for the holidays. If some country Christmas songs have a similar effect on you, check out my playlist after the jump. Some of my very favorites include "Merry Christmas Mary" with Johnny Cash's rich, deep voice giving thanks to the woman who, you know, helped make the first Christmas happen, and the exuberant "Baby Jesus Is Born" by Garth Brooks.
It's a nice little group of songs, so to check it out and share your own favorites, read more.
Some of these songs are not allowed play longer than 30 seconds here, but if you have an imeem account, click here for the playlist with full-length versions.
