George Strait Shows Southern Pride With Holiday Gem “When It’s Christmas Time In Texas”

Merry Christmas Strait To You is George Strait’s first ever Christmas album, released in 1986, and we still love it. The eighth track on the album is a great homage to his Texas roots, and sweeps us along with a cheerful and upbeat tune.
