I’ve listened to Riders in the Sky play music “the cowboy way” since 2007 when one of my teachers suggested that I might enjoy them. They bring their cowboy wit, charm, and superb musicianship to this unique Christmas album. This track lives up to it’s name which boasts that it’s “the last Christmas medley you’ll ever need to hear.” It uses ‘Let it Snow’ as the vehicle for 14 of the most popular Christmas songs. The first round through is instrumental, so it’s a test of your Christmas song knowledge. The next time through they utilize their classic vocal harmonies to help you out with the snippets that may have gone by a little too fast. Enjoy this 15-songs-in-one treat today!
