4.0 out of 5 stars A GS Fan December 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you like George Strait, you will like this CD. As a previous reviewer mentioned, a few of the songs are bit slow and sound kind of wooden. Luckily its only a few songs and the rest have that Texas Swing sound that George is known for. "Merry Christmas Strait to You" is the best song on the CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Christmas CD December 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Strait's version of "White Christmas" is one of his few true clinkers ever, but it's the new songs here that make this disc worthwhile: "For Christ's Sake it's Christmas", the title track, "Texas Christmas" and "New Kid in Town" are terrific. Some day he should combine the best of this disc and his newer "Merry Christmas Whereever You Are" into one album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Country Christmas! October 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I remember listening to this CD (well it was a tape then) all the time growing up! Now that I am trying to build up my own Christmas collection, this is one of the first that I looked for! George Strait is at his best, with Christmas favorites as well as several original songs. My favorites are "When it's Christmastime in Texas," "Merry Christmas Strait to You," and "There's a New Kid in Town." This is a must-buy for any George Strait fan!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Gather-Round-the-Fire" music November 19, 2000
By Dian
Format:Audio CD
If you enjoy Christmas music, this is as good as it gets!! If you are a George Stait fan, you won't be let down. The mix of new and classic songs makes for an hour of enjoyable, "gather-around-the-fire" music. From melancholy "Merry Christmas Wherever You Are" to "Santa's On His Way", this album is a perfect addition to your Christmas collection. I highly recommend "Merry Christmas Strait To You"!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite George Christmas October 28, 2013
By suzie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the second time I have bought this CD by George Strait. I positively wore the first one out in two Christmas seasons. At home, in my car...I played it over and over. So down to earth in every way and one special song that hit home with me "A New Kid In Town". Love his voice and the emotions he puts into his singing. A wonderful Christmas album for the whole family!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical of George's brilliant eighties music September 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
George's style has changed a little over the years, although not as dramatically as some singers of comparative longevity. Nevertheless, I particularly like his eighties music and this, George's first Christmas album, is in the style that was typical of George's music during that decade.

George ultimately decided on five familiar standards and five original songs, which are presented alternately. All the standards have been recorded countless times, but if enjoy George's music, especially his eighties music, you'll love his renditions of White Christmas, Winter wonderland, Away in a manger, Frosty the snowman and Santa Claus is coming to town.

Of the original songs (at least I think they were all original when George recorded them), perhaps my favorites are the title track and the bright, upbeat When it's Christmas time in Texas. However, the song that may be most familiar among the originals may be There's a new kid in town. Not to be confused with a famous Eagles hit with a slightly shorter title, this excellent song has been covered by other singers including Kathy Mattea (on her Christmas album Good news) and Trisha Year wood (on her Christmas album Sweetest gift). Two other fine originals (For Christ's sake it's Christmas, What a merry Christmas this could be) complete an outstanding album that mixes traditional country with a dash of western swing as only George Strait knows how.

This will definitely appeal to fans of traditional country music looking for a Christmas album that mixes originals and familiar songs. Will it appeal to a pop audience? I hope so but I rather doubt it. Still, there are plenty of other Christmas albums out there, including some by country singers, that cater for their needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars George on cassette
My husband had this in cassette. After many years it no longer played well. He was quite pleased to receive it in CD form so he can continue to listen for many more years.

5.0 out of 5 stars George at his best for Christmas
Found this CD at the library and had to order 2, one for me and one for a friend. My boys even tolerate it more than my listening to the country radio station. Great songs.
