Earlier this year, Amy released her debut album Introducing Amy Jack, which was co-produced by the legendary Merle Haggard. You can learn more about the album in our previous interview with Amy. This time, Amy is here to help get you into the Holiday spirit. Check out some of her favorite Christmas songs below.

In December, Amy released her very own Christmas song, a toe-tappin’, country spin on the timeless classic “Winter Wonderland.” Check out Amy’s rendition as well as some of her other favorite holiday songs!

“It’s so pretty the way Merle arranged this. It’s so genuine to his life. Merle went on excursions and would hop trains starting age 11 and would do this in the winter. I can just imagine this song being conceived when he was lost on a train wanting to get home for Christmas. I also can’t help but think of soldiers protecting our freedom in the cold and in the dark, and how they long to spend Christmas with their children and families.”

Merle Haggard – “If We Make it Through December”

“I think this has one of the prettiest melodies of all time. Most families can relate to the message of the song. Some people save all year to provide gifts for their family. It’s just a really beautiful song.”

Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers – “Christmas Without You”

“They are one of the greatest country duos of all time and this song is just beautiful. It’s heartfelt and I just love the way it’s arranged. I could listen to it on repeat, I can’t get enough of it.”

Bing Crosby – “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas”

“It’s a happy and joyful Christmas song that gets you in a great mood. It’s kind of like a signal; you hear it and you know the holidays are here.”

Gene Autry – “Frosty the Snowman”

Frosty is the ultimate imaginary playmate. He goes “the children say he could laugh and play” and that’s what it’s all about. Being outside and being at play.

Andy Williams – “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”

“His soft, smooth and crooning voice is just total bliss. Beautifully performed and totally uplifting for the holiday season.”

Merle Haggard – “Goin’ Home for Christmas”

“It’s so pretty the way Merle arranged this. It’s so genuine to his life. Merle went on excursions and would hop trains starting age 11 and would do this in the winter. I can just imagine this song being conceived when he was lost on a train wanting to get home for Christmas. I also can’t help but think of soldiers protecting our freedom in the cold and in the dark, and how they long to spend Christmas with their children and families.”
