Alabama Christmas Songs & Music

Canadian country band Alabama include a handful of Christian rock albums in their output, so it is little surprise they have tried their hand at Christmas music on more than one occasion. The group was not content simply rehashing old carols, however, with their yuletide albums predominantly made-up of holiday themed originals. The band's two Christmas collections have also spawned a couple of compilation albums. The first was the 1994 album Christmas with the Judds and Alabama, in which the tracks from Alabama Christmas were included alongside those from country duo The Judds. Alabama's 2006 release Christmas Collection features some of the best known songs from the band's two holiday offerings.

Alabama Christmas Albums

Alabama Christmas

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.

Alabama Christmas Volume II

1996: Alabama Christmas Volume II

Alabama keep the intensity low in their second Christmas collection. With plenty of laid-back and gentle tracks like Blessings and Christmas is Love, this album provides perfect background music for your next chilled Christmas drinks with friends. The boys do amp up the volume a little as they cover Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree and their original Hangin’ Round the Mistletoe. Unlike their first holiday album, there are some traditional classics included in this collection. O Little Town of Bethlehem and The Little Drummer Boy are given a southern rock twist and mixed in amongst more of Alabama’s catchy holiday originals.
