Classic Christmas Super Hits is an odd cross-section of country performers -- from Gene Autry, Willie Nelson, George Jones and Marty Robbins to Ricky Van Shelton, Shelby Lynn, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, Johnny Cash, and Merle Haggard -- performing a selection of standard Christmas carols. Some of the songs are contemporary classics, while others are traditional numbers. The production of the album is a little uneven -- it's clear that the songs all hail from different albums and source material -- but Classic Christmas Super Hits is surprisingly enjoyable. Nearly every performance is joyful and heart-felt, which helps give the album a lovely feeling of holiday cheer.
