Trace Bundy - O Night Divine

The acoustic guitar always sounds like an instrument that was designed to play Christmas music, and Trace Bundy uses every bit of his guitar's potential. Traditional carols and hymns are given new life with Bundy's guitar arrangements that blend folk and finger-tapping to make one guitar sound like a full band.

Blake Shelton - Cheers, It's Christmas

Put a little swing in your holiday tunes! "Cheers, It's Christmas" is a classy contemporary country album from Blake Shelton featuring many famous guest artists, and makes for a warm and inviting holiday soundtrack.

Arthur Fiedler & The Boston Pops Orchestra - A Christmas Festival

Here's a beautiful orchestral album of the more serene Christmas hits. Nearly every popular Christmas tune is covered in the capable hands of Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops, and are arranged back-to-back without the mismatching that can arise from listening to Christmas hits on the radio.
