Two weeks until Christmas, people – two weeks. Are you ready? I’m not. I’m still scrambling to get things done – at least I finally got our tree decorated yesterday, so now there’s a place to put all the wrapped gifts. Which still need to be wrapped. After I remember where I’ve stashed them all. Ahem.
Since it’s December, we’re celebrating all month long with a continuous Holiday Theme, so grab your favorite videos and come play along. Let’s start off with another of my favorite American Idol winners – in his new music video, shots of him in the recording studio are cut with photos and videos of his younger self celebrating Christmas with his family and starring in the church nativity play. So cute.
Next up are three of my favorite artists together celebrating the Christmas season on the show that made country music famous, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee:
Give a listen to Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride and Julianne Hough with “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”:
Next up is another favorite group, who took their time on their new Christmas album, recording 12 songs over two separate summers — because they’re hoping it will “last through the years.”
Here’s Lady Antebellum with “Winter’s Night”:
Next up we find one of my all-time favorite country artist teamed up with one of my favorite pop stars in a great song collaboration for her album that was released in October:
Here’s Colbie Caillat and Brad Paisley with “Merry Christmas Baby”:
Next up is a song I dedicated to my brother for his birthday, since MMMM happened to land on said birthday. Yesterday was my birthday, my brother’s birthday is Wednesday, so I think it only appropriate I dedicate this song to him once again. Happy (early) Birthday, Mikey – here’s a “Box Of Rocks” (by The Song Trust):
And last, but certainly not least, for all my awesome friends who are celebrating Hanukkah (aka Chanukah) this week, here’s a favorite, Adam Sandler with “Hanukkah Song”:
Enjoy your Monday!
Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:
I have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and her cohorts in crime, Lorie of The Shewbridges of Celebration, Florida, Callie from JAmericanSpice, Cathy from Cathy Kennedy’s Blog, and for the month of November, our Honorary Co-Conductor is none other than Santa Claus.
Want to join in the fun? It’s easy – just find a tune that rocks your boat, post it and link up – don’t forget to grab Xmas Dolly…er, um, I mean her button…over at her place here. Check out Xmas Dolly’s sidebar for the random themes we sport each week – and you can always ask for a specific theme of music you like, too. Check out the other music lovahs and let’s jam!
The awesome Run DMT also hosts Music Monday (who graciously helps out with our hostessing every time we need it, and who I had the privilege of meeting in person at BlogHer – she’s even more adorable than I imagined):
