Kenny Rogers became such a sensation not only because his warm voice could be gravelly and smooth, but also because of his knack for weaving a yarn. And what would Christmas be without someone telling stories that made you laugh, or cry, or just feel warm and fuzzy? Christmas doesn't really pull any surprises, but fans won't be disappointed by Rogers's crooning of "White Christmas" and "Carol of the Bells." His voice has always done well in the upper reaches of its range, and by including "O Holy Night," Rogers has chosen wisely: His delivery at the song's end can give goose bumps. "Kentucky Homemade Christmas" and Rogers's handling of both "Christmas Is My Favorite Time of the Year" and "Kids" proves he can still spin a tale as well as he can carry a tune. --Steve Gdula

"Over the years, Kenny Rogers has become well known for his Christmas albums as well as his country and pop albums.His album titled "Christmas" was his first holiday release. With Kenny's recent comeback, and return to the top of the charts, Capitol Records decided to cash in on reissues of classic Rogers albums. "Christmas" was reissued as "Christmas Greetings" for Christmas 2000. It was also digitally remastered for the first time on CD ("Christmas" was originally issued on CD in 1987 on EMI America Records).The album is a great introduction to Christmas Kenny Rogers style. It features a variety of Christmas songs. From the festive, holiday side of Christmas ("White Christmas," "My Favorite Things,") to the religious side of Christmas ("O Holy Night," "Sweet Little Jesus Boy.") But that's not all. Kenny took the time to find some great original Christmas songs. "Kentucky Homemade Christmas" will pull at your heart and bring a tear to your eye. "Christmas Everyday" reminds us all of the spirit of Christmas. Several other new songs are equally excellent."Christmas Greetings" presents a well-rounded feeling of the season. The cover art was also updated to look very modern. Although the album was originally released in 1981, it still sounds fresh. Plus, it gives us another chance to remember all the Christmas seasons we have spent with Kenny Rogers. Pick this one up. Merry Christmas!!"
This is another Christmas C.D to have!!

"I am proud to say this is a Kenny Rogers C.D. I have in my collection! Two of my favorites...Christmas in America and Christmas Everyday! The latter is something I personally strive to live for every day of the year! If you love the sounds of the season then I think you should have this in your home! Wonderful to listen to!!"
