    Happy Holidays Goldderby! So every year artists release holiday albums and singles. I know that most artists submit such albums to traditional pop album category. But there is no category for holiday performance. Would you be here for a Best Holiday performance Grammy category. And if so from years past who would you nominate? And who would be your winners?

    Well, if the category were to start this 2020 Grammys, A Legendary Christmas most likely would win.

    To me, Alison Krauss should have some Grammy glitter and shine for the following songs that she herself wrote. (smiles)

    “Shimney Down The Chimney” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr2_Hx1Jgl4

    “Only You Can Bring Me Cheer” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ujvt9kMYbF8

    Let us not forget about her awesome duets with Alan Jackson and Gary Chapman.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnfjF6UBYo4

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KozxC7MzrtI

    God bless you and Alison and Gary and AJ always!!!

    Holly (a fan of Alison for 25 years now)

    P.S. Another thing that makes them first two songs so special is the fact that they are NOT in the style that she is known for. (shaking my head with a smile)

    To me, LeAnn Rimes did an awesome job on the following songs.

    “Holiday In Your Heart” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TixWV3LJx5Y

    “I Miss You Like Christmas” (a song that she wrote) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0wwPdgpw7M

    Tanya Tucker did a song I believe back in 1995 when I was only thirteen that I sadly did not finally hear until just two years ago. This song apparently was given very little acknowledgement if any or I would’ve known about it back when it was first released. Anyway to me, this is one of the best songs about the real meaning of the season and Tanya couldn’t have done a better job on it. (smiles)

    “The Wonder” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfCFDg5lrtk

    My most favorite male singer who is still here, James Otto, does an awesome country soul rendition of “Go Tell It On The Mountain”. (smiles)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lAHwVseSec

    God bless you and him and Tanya and LeAnn always!!!

    Holly (a fan of Tanya since 1991)

    P.S. One of my most favorite singers who should still be here but isn’t, Steve Sanders of the Oak Ridge Boys that is, did the lead singing for two songs from the Christmas album that was done by him while with the other group members which sadly ended up being his final album as a member of the act.

    “Blue Christmas” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGTUxyKEhvY

    “Thank God For Kids” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sw7X509r1U

    Every time that I hear him sing that song about kids, I wish that I could put my arms around him and say that I love him even if other people do not anymore. (trying not to cry for him again)

    I also love The Pointer Sister’s version of Santa Claus Coming To Town! They bring the fun to this song.
