It's a little lame. About half of it is decent. Glad I had a gift card to use on it,

Actually this is a pretty darned good Christmas CD! If you like traditional, non-overly-studio-"slickened" REAL music, done Sammy Kershaw-country style, with a kick of Cajun thrown in here and there, then you'll definitely enjoy this 2012 Sammy Kershaw Christmas release! And I don't say that just because I PLAYED on the thing (which I did! ..piano. See "Sammy Kershaw" entry on wikipedia. Sammy used his own band for this CD, versus "studio guys"). Rather, I say you'll enjoy this CD because it actually IS good! Sammy starts with a recitation of "T'was the Night Before Christmas", and the CD ends with the Cajun version of the recitation, done authentically as only a true Cajun can deliver! In between the two are nestled lots of good ol Christmas favorites, tastefully done in what FEELS much more like "genuine" Christmas than many of todays overly produced releases (guess I'm somewhat of a traditionalist.. but I'm also a musician, who grew up hearing his uncles "pickin" guitars and banjos out on the farm.. so I appreciate REAL country MUSIC, versus what happens with most studio/protools/computer generated country genre Christmas productions these days). This recording won't disappoint! A particular favorite, including with most of the guys who played on the CD, is the cover of the Ray Charles recording of "That Spirit Of Christmas" (#4 on the CD). Sammy voice shines, with soulful inflections revealing his diverse musical influences. In fact, the whole CD shines, and will fill you with the "Spirit of Christmas" :) So go ahead, give yourself or others the gift of genuine Christmas music.. Sammy and the guys deliver here! (btw, thanks to Carol Kizer for the use of her Christmas music book, that I used to help in making the music charts used in the studio for most of these songs! So in a way, you're on here too, Carol!) Hope to see ya'll at a concert out there on the road somewhere near you! Come hollar "hey"! Merry Christmas to all.. no matter what time of year it is! And know that HE, Jesus, is the REASON for the Season! Oh how He is! ...EVERY season of Life... My heart longs to know Him, more and more! All Glory to Jesus, Yeshua, Creator and Redeemer! Maranatha! John 3:16-21 ---Steve F.

I have been a Sammy fan for 20+ years, LOVE him! Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without him! Now I have TWO wonderful Christmas albums to listen to!

My wife is a big country music fan. Me, not so much. So I bought this for her and then it sort of grew on me. Fun, twangy, toe tapping. Fiddles, guitars, banjos, dobros, hum along versions of well known Christmas songs.

It was just okay. Probably won't play it that much during the holiday seasons. I had a Sammy Kershaw Christmas CD already and this one wasn't any different. Some artists put out more than one Christmas CD and they are totally different, but not this one.

A Sammy Klaus Christmas: It was awful, uninteresting, and boring. I did not find one redeeming quality. My daughter thought I had lost my good mind for buying it.

Nice addition to the Christmas Music Collection (Which is more than adequate) already. Really enjoyed the reading of the Cajun Christmas

Very unique with a lot of humor. A different Christmas Album but well done. Would highly recommend it. Great music.

It's okay, just not as good as his first one. Our favorite song is "Christmas times a coming". Love Sammy
