1985: Alabama Christmas
Alabama’s first Christmas collection features ten original and fresh holiday themed songs. Overplayed Christmas classics are nowhere to be heard on this album, replaced with new country hits like Tennessee Christmas and Thistlehair the Christmas Bear. There are some warm and fuzzy ballads included, like Santa Claus (I Still Believe in You), plus what is probably Alabama’s best known holiday song, Christmas in Dixie. For fans of both country and Christmas music alike, Alabama’s seasonal offering is a good one; drumming up plenty of holiday cheer without rehashing those old carols we’ve heard so many times before.
