Country Christmas Eve Review

by Jason Ankeny

The Oaks' gospel roots come back into focus on Country Christmas Eve, a ho-hum collection of contemporary and traditional holiday songs both secular and spiritual in origin. In addition to renditions of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and the "Manger Medley" (which brings together "The First Noel," "Joy to the World," and "Angels We Have Heard on High"), the group also tackles more modern material like "Blue Christmas" and "Daddy's Christmas Eve," authored by Oak Ridge Boy Joe Bonsall. Country Christmas Eve also features their 1982 hit "Thank God for Kids."
