Run Rudolph Run because Drunk Americans are the Drinking Class and will Shake up Christmas!

You do realize it’s only a week-and-a-half until Christmas, right? I am so not ready right now, but I am getting there, so there’s that. We did get a monster of a Christmas tree last week, so now I need to get busy wrapping presents to have something under it to taunt the kids until Christmas.

And I guess that also means that I need to finish buying  the gifts. Ahem.

The month of December we’re doing our traditional theme of songs of Christmas –  though every-other-week is still a freebie, which happens to be this week. I’ve mixed it up a bit, so let’s have some , shall we?

Let’s start off with an unconventional duo who only did their duo-ism recently (like last week). It’s always a great moment when one of the artist’s gets to show off his incredible guitar skills. You gotta love him. 


Give a listen to my favorite dude, paired with  with ”:

Next up is a new song where the video is kind of funny being that it’s stop-motion animation. The song and video captures the melting pot that is these United States, with a hodgepodge of characters floating in and out of the animated saloon.

An ostentatious animation of the artist mans the bar while prom queens and strippers, preachers and kingpins, even Democrats and Republicans stream in to share a pint…or seven.

While the video’s animation borders on creepy, the inclusive message behind the song speaks out loud and clear. In a country increasingly divided between political parties and favorite football teams, maybe what we need to get our unity back is a glass of beer, a star spangled flag and a good, old song.


Here’s Toby Keith with”:

Next up is a song that’s an anthemic salute to working class Americans — the artist wanted to pay tribute to the hard working men and women who get up every day and work hard to provide for their families, because it’s where he comes from and where his heart is.


Give a listen to with ”:

Last but not least is another unconventional Christmas song I love, and apparently Cocoa Cola loved it so much, they used it as their jingle in 2010.


Without further ado, here’s with ”:

That’s a wrap for this week – let’s all shake up some happiness and have a great Monday!

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.
