It is truly hard to experience the holiday season when a loved one is absent. Taylor Swift describes this well in her song “Christmases When You Were Mine.”

The song’s lyrics focus on the sense of longing and nostalgia that can be felt during Christmastime after losing someone, whether it’s a significant other or a beloved friend or family member.

The narrator knows the season is supposed to be of joy. But when it’s cold outside and everyone but that person is mingling and helping to put up Christmas decor, the absence is more poignant. Rather than enjoy the moment, she ends up reminiscing about the Christmases when they were still together.

16. “Hallelujah” By Carrie Underwood And John Legend

A masterpiece in the Christmas music genre comes from the collaboration between American country music singer Carrie Underwood and R&B artist John Legend. The song, titled “Hallelujah,” is a highlight of Underwood’s 2020 holiday album, My Gift.

17. “Hard Candy Christmas” By Dolly Parton

The sentiment behind the song is about overcoming hardship and finding hope, which can be relevant at any time of the year. The term “hard candy Christmas” refers to times when families did not have a lot of money to buy presents and would give hard candy as gifts instead.

We had to cover a few classics you’ve listened to since childhood, and Autry’s version of “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” is undoubtedly one of the most famous.

You’re plunged right into a warm Christmas mood as soon as you hear Autry naming off the other reindeer.

The song was the number one song at Christmas in 1949 in the United States. So it’s hard to believe that Autry almost didn’t want the song on a record he was making.

Thank goodness his wife convinced him to put it on, further cementing its commercial success.

33. “Blue Christmas” by Elvis Presley

Although Elvis is not the first person to cover this song, “Blue Christmas” feels like his song with his classic voice and iconic lyrics.

35. “Santa Baby” by Kellie Pickler

Originally released in 1953 and performed by Eartha Kitt,  Santa Baby is a highly controversial song that was initially banned in the Southern United States. Some critics considered it too provocative and suggestive for a Christmas song. 

Kellie Pickler’s country rendition of this song adds her Southern charm to the sultry crooning lyrics.

The song debuted at number 49 on the Hot Country Songs chart and eventually peaked at number 33 after five weeks, selling over 140,000 digital downloads in the United States.

36. “Mary, Did You Know?” by Kenny Rogers and Wynonna

Few classic Christmas songs draw attention to Jesus’s virgin mother, Mary, and the wonder she must have felt throughout the Christmas story.

Indeed, this beautiful song asks Mary about what wonders her baby boy would one day do, like walking on water and healing the blind. 

Kenny Rogers and Wynonna were not the first to cover this song, but it was a successful cover in 1997.

The song peaked at number 55 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart that year and continues to warm country music lovers’ hearts every year.

37. “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Vince Gill

The song invites you to forget your troubles and “make the yuletide gay,” and what more can you ask for during Christmas?

38. “Please Come Home for Christmas” By The Eagles

The Eagles may primarily be a rock band, but “Please Come Home for Christmas” was a country hit back in 1978, ranking at number 15 in the Hot Adult Contemporary Takes chart. 

While not as croony or sentimental as “Blue Christmas,” it does evoke a melancholy image of a Christmas without your loved ones.

You might have heard it at one point during Home Alone since those movies have every classic Christmas song ever.

Despite the sad imagery, it’s still a fun song to nod your head to when waiting in line for Christmas shopping.

39. Old Toy Trains by Roger Miller

Toys are a time-honored symbol of the Christmas season, and this 1967 song kindly reminds you that you won’t get toys unless you’re in bed on Christmas Eve.

The joyful melody also brings up images of trying to sleep while listening for Santa’s sleigh to come to your home.

This short and simple song paved the way for several popular covers and even ended an eight-year hiatus at Smash Records for releasing Christmas singles.

40. “Christmas Cookies” By George Strait

We end our list with a sweet treat: “Christmas Cookies.” This delightful holiday track has been charmingly rendered by the country music legend George Strait. This song, as you might have guessed, is a heartwarming ode to one of the most loved Christmas traditions — baking cookies.
