5.0 out of 5 stars a golden nugget shining brightly for the season !!! October 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Scotty McCreery, who caught my attention on American Idol, has released his first holiday album; it's terrific! Scotty is at his usual best here and there's not a bad track on the album! I really like the selection of songs both new and classic and the sound quality is excellent, too.

"Let It Snow" has a great arrangement; Scotty never sounded better! I like the use of the piano and more in the music that accompanies him as he sings this classic tune. "The First Noel" charms me with its natural beauty; and "Jingle Bells" gets an excellent treatment from Scotty McCreery! "Holly Jolly Christmas" has a country rock flavor and a faster tempo than I'm used to hearing but it all holds its own very well; it's absolutely electric and I love it! "Winter Wonderland" couldn't have been done any better; and "Christmas in Heaven," a new and very poignant number, is very special. "Mary, Did You Know" is also really well done and Scotty never lets go of a single superfluous note!

"Christmas Comin' Round Again" captures the Christmas spirit in a fine, new country music ballad that I could never get tired of hearing; this music is all that good! "O Holy Night," an evergreen classic, has Scotty singing this with great sensitivity and that's grand. "The Christmas Song" by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells shines in Scotty's more than capable hands and the CD ends with Scotty McCreery performing "Santa Claus Is Back in Town;" Scotty wanted this Elvis number on the album since he's such a big Elvis fan.

This album is a must-have for Scotty's fans; and anyone who appreciates excellent holiday music will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this album--it showcases Scotty's incredible talent and puts me in the right holiday spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Must Have Holiday CD This Year! October 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I've had this CD since it came out Tuesday and finally got to really listen to it tonight all the way through on the headphones and it is FANTASTIC. If it did not include the last song it would still make a great Holiday album as the arrangements are spot on and the songs are tailored perfectly for Scotty's incredible voice! With that said, I have to say that 'Santa Claus Is Back in Town" off of Elvis' 1957 Christmas album is my favorite Christmas song ever, and Scotty captures the Elvis raw intensity on this classic perfectly....Elvis would be Very Proud! Having this song at the end really was icing on the cake. But there is one more treat waiting, as he seagues into Elvis' version of See See Rider after Santa Claus is Back in Town finishes which is a nice gesture to one of is childhood idols.

All the songs on this CD shine in their own way, however, standouts that left an immediate impression for me also include Jingle Bells, Let it Snow and the new Christmas in Heaven. I really thought I would cringe at another verson of Jingle Bells, but this is a great countrified Scotty take on this song and is actually one of my favorites. Christmas in Heaven is an instant new classic and hope it get tons of airplay as we need more songs like this. I really think with radio support this could be a big break through hit for Scotty. I think this was a very good next CD for Scotty since it allows him to cover some great tried and true holiday songs, but to also put his own spin on them with his unique baritone voice, and to introduce a couple of really nice new songs.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am not a country music fan but this cd is FANTASTIC!! Scotty has a wonderful voice and the songs on this album are perfect for him. The perfect mix of classic carols, fun arrangements and new songs all done so very well. The guitar music on this cd deserves to be singled out as it is remarkable! Just a joy to listen to this cd whether you are a country music fan or not. This is my favorite new cd of the season.

4.0 out of 5 stars Country Christmas At It's Best November 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When it comes to Christmas music, I prefer the oldies like Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and others from that era. I actually do have a few country Christmas albums in my collection, like Lynn Anderson, Tammy Wynette, Barbara Mandrell and the Statler Brothers. As much as I love country music, I don't prefer it for the holidays. When I saw that Scotty was going to be releasing a Christmas album, it piqued my curiosity. Would I like it?? Would it be too country??? Well I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. It is a very nice collection of traditional carols, Christmas favorites and a couple new tunes; all with a pure country sound. The shining gem for me is one of the original songs, " Christmas In Heaven". Simply a beautiful song that can bring tears to your eyes. I'm sure it will evoke emotion in you too. Two of my favorites are the traditional carols, "O Holy Night" and "The First Noel". Also, the classics, "Let It Snow, Let It Snow. Let It Snow", "Winter Wonderland" and "The Christmas Song" are all shining moments in the collection. Scotty's rollicking rendition of "Holly Jolly Christmas" is alot of fun too. If you are looking for a new Christmas album to brighten your holiday season, this is it. Give it a listen and you won't be sorry.. Merry Christmas!

The third CD I tried to get for my wife for Christmas. This one was late and the other two made it BEFORE Christmas. Not their fault, mine I should have ordered earlier.
