I had picked up John Denver's Rocky Mountain Christmas ages ago, when I was a crazed 8-track collector. It just wouldn't be Christmas without John Denver's wonderful voice, he's like a welcoming friend you have over for the holidays. The songs are incredibly lovely, even the somewhat silly "Please, Daddy Don't Get Drunk This Christmas", which always makes me chuckle a bit. But my very favorite song is "Christmas For Cowboys". When you listen to the words, you can visualize John riding his horse looking up at the stars on a crisp cold Christmas night.
