Every year there is the release of numerous, often indistinguishable Christmas music CDs that seem to be thoughtlessly created, full of forced holiday cheer. Artists encouraged by the people at their record label, dutifully, sometimes it appears, mindlessly, churn out their lack-luster take on traditional carols, but this CD is different.

Lynne, in beautiful voice and with a unique approach, adds depth to the standard carols and includes two seriously good original compositions, Ain't Nothin' Like Christmas and Xmas. She has created a simply exceptional CD not limited by the genre. Fully present on the disc, she effortlessly glides through multiple styles including jazz, blues, country, etc. She's brought genuine artistry to the project and produced a sophisticated CD of substance.

Her interpretation of songs I've heard a thousand times is a revelation. From the first song, the listener is engulfed. This CD is a keeper. If you love Christmas music this is a must have, and even if you don't, this CD may convert you.

Shelby's career has taken a few twists and turns, but this album takes Shelby back to country music.She actually seemed to enjoy recording this album, although one of the two songs she wrote for this album, simply titled Xmas, is a particularly sad, bluesy song. The other song here that Shelby wrote, Ain't nothin' like Christmas, is more cheerful and therefore more typical of the album.

Actually, I'm pleasantly surprised by the album, because while Shelby is well suited to sad, bluesy songs like Xmas, I'd like her to be happy at Christmas, and it rather looks as though Shelby was happy when she recorded most of this album. This is particularly evident on Christmas time's a-coming (which lacks the exuberant fun of Dolly Parton's version on Christmas Grass: The Collection, but I would never expect that from Shelby. In it's way, Shelby's version is every bit as good as Dolly's (and I can see that some might prefer it), because it is obvious that Shelby was happy while recording it, and I'm glad about that. Her happiness is also evident on other tracks, notably Santa Claus is coming to town.

The other tracks all feature familiar songs, all performed superbly by Shelby. If you enjoy hearing Shelby sing country music, you should love this album. If you're a fan of some of Shelby's other music but aren't keen on country music, you might be better to forget this one - or at least check some samples before buying.

Shelby Lynne's new CD, "Merry Christmas," offers a swinging, jazzy take on traditional Christmas songs. It took me a couple of listens to really get into it, perhaps because it's stripped down sound is much different than the frequently overpowering orchestration found on many Christmas CD's. Now it's heavy in the rotation, however, along with Jackie Evancho's "O Holy Night," which is in the traditional vein. The contrast between Shelby and Jackie's versions of O Holy Night and Silent Night is dramatic. Both of their versions of these songs are very enjoyable, each in their own way. If you are looking to add something a little different to your Christmas CD collection, I highly recommend Shelby Lynne's "Merry Christmas." In addition to traditional songs like O Holy Night, Silent Night, Winter Wonderland, Silver Bells, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and White Christmas, this CD also includes two Shelby Lynne originals, Ain't Nothing like Christmas and Xmas, which are two of my favorite songs on "Merry Christmas."

Since she's not not too country, not too poppy I wondered if Shelby could do seasonal songs and keep her own sound- but she hits the bull-eye here. The original 'Xmas' is some righteous blues with guest Dave Koz . A nice cover of Vince Guaraldi's 'Christmas Time' makes the disc stand well on it's own

A huge Shelby Lynne fan, I admit, she can do no wrong in my book! I have followed Ms. Lynne from her debut country CDs, her jazzy stage, and now her "funky" singing style and I love 'em everyone! Her rich voice and heartfelt emotions guarantee a winner on every song she attempts. Long live Shelby Lynne! I just love her!

Shelby Lynne covers many standards in her usual husky tones... always enjoy new renditions of the holiday classics and this satisfies.
