Country Roads: country songs are all about Christmas
The Rowdy

Twas the week before Christmas, when all through Music City, not a country song was playing, not even a lonesome ditty. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is in full swing for everyone. As country fans far and wide sit down with their families, music will certainly play an integral role in all the upcoming festivities and holiday parties. Many of those classic holiday songs we've come to love and cherish over the years actually have origins in country music. Songs from Gene Autry ("Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer), Bobby Helms ("Jingle Bell Rock") and Brenda Lee ("Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree") have gone on to become seasonal staples on everyone's playlist and engrained in our very lives.

The Rowdy talks all about that and more in this week's holiday-themed installment of Country Roads. Watch above.
