Cody Johnson’s First-Ever Christmas Album is Proof We’ve All Been Good Boys & Girls
We've known it was on its way, but the official announcement had me feeling like it was actually Christmas morning. It's gonna be a Cody Johnson Christmas at the Logan household this year. And every year.
A Cody Johnson Christmas will be out on Nov. 19th, and the new project will feature several Christmas standards as well as a couple of original songs. We'll also get a Willie Nelson "Pretty Paper" update and a cover of Merle Haggard's "If We Make It Through December," which isn't technically a Christmas song, but it does take place during it.
Johnson doesn't agree with my last statement however, "That’s a Christmas song, by the way," Johnson tells Taste of Country Nights of the Haggard original. "You put some jingle bells on anything, it’s a Christmas song."
There's also a special appearance from The Dos Barrachos, Kevin Fowler and Roger Creager are featured on "Feliz Navidad, and he brings his wife and daughters aboard for "Silent Night."
His original tune, the Trent Wilmon penned "Hat Made Of Misletoe” is out now.
