Cheers, It’s Christmas #BlakeShelton #music

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! On Tuesday I kicked off a new-to-me mewsic discovery and I decided to continue this approach for December each Thursday, as well. So it’s gonna be a whole month of Christmas mewsic. No bah-hum-bugs allowed so if you’re not onboard then move on Scrooge! Today’s featured artist/album is… Blake Shelton – Cheers, it’s Christmas!

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

      Birgit,

      Which song or is all of Blake’s songs you don’t care too much for? Just curious to know is all. I like it simply because it is different but I also like Blake. He’s a very likable guy.

        Sorry but it’s all his songs as I am not into country for the most part. I like Johnny Cash and then a few here and there. Oh well, can’t win ‘em All.

          Birgit,

          I’m not a huge country mewsic fan but I’ve grown to like it more over the years even the old twangy stuff. I totally get ya and we all can’t like the same kind of mewsic anyhow, right?

    It’s nice to hear the usual songs sung with a different voice than what they play on the radio. It makes me listen a bit more closely. Happy Thursday!

    Good morning, Cathy!

    At this time of year I am used to hearing traditional seasonal songs performed by pop crooners like Bing, Nat, Andy Williams, etc. My ears appreciated this refreshing change to Christmas country style. It was a pleasure to listen to an artist I don’t hear very often, Blake Shelton. I enjoyed Blake’s duet with Reba McEntire on “Oklahoma Christmas,” a song I never heard before. I also liked three other new to me songs: “Let It Snow,” “New Kid In Town feat. Kelly Clarkson, and “Santa’s Got a Choo Choo Train.” Blake also performed a marvelous rendition of “Blue Christmas.” Blake’s vocals are rich and pure. I always use headphones to listen to mewsic and highly recommend them. As you know I enjoy country music even though I am not exposed to it very often. That is going to change. The rudder is turning and I am getting more interested in country, rockabilly and early rock ‘n’ roll which is rooted in country. In the future I will be presenting those styles of mewsic more often on SDMM.

    Thank you very much for this delightful morning concert, dear friend Cathy. Enjoy your Thursday!

      Tom,

      I don’t listen to nearly enough country mewsic but I’ve found over the years that I like it more than I did as a kid. Of course, the new country isn’t like what I heard growing up and that may account for why I like it more now. Anywho, I love the variety of mewsic styles through the holiday season because honestly there is only so much of the traditional sounds. I love it but I really like mixing things up to put a little spice in my Christmas. Thanks for letting me know how much you enjoyed Blake Shelton’s “Cheers, It’s Christmas” album. The week is nearly gone, my friend. I hope you have a good day!

💕I love comments! Have a purrfect day & thanks for stopping by!💕
