Whether you are alone this Christmas or surrounded by friends and family, the Christmas season can be difficult to cope with. “Silver Bells” touches on this “depression” and is an eye-opener that will make you more aware of the feelings and emotions of those who may be lonely around the holidays.
6. Blue Christmas (Feat. Pistol Annies)
The Pistol Annies make an appearance on Blake Shelton’s hit song Blue Christmas. Featured on the album Cheers, It’s Christmas, the song is an original by Elvis Presley, who recorded the song back in 1957.

Christmas in the country is different from that of the city and comes with a different feeling altogether. “Oklahoma Christmas” was recorded by Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire in 2012 for the album Cheers, It’s Christmas, and it takes a deeper look at what Christmas in the South is like.
