Tuesday Tunes - John Denver's Rocky Mountain Christmas

When I got married about 12 years ago, I was introduced to a new Christmas tradition by her family. They always decorate the tree and open presents while listening to John Denver's Rocky Mountain Christmas album. I'm actually in Denver right now as I'm writing this....what a coincidence! It originally came out in 1975. I was 3. You should check this album out...it has really grown on me over the years. I especially like "Please Daddy Don't Get Drunk This Christmas". That song has been remade by two of my current favorites...the husband and wife duo, Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis. Here is the track list. Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
