From now until Christmas I’m going to be hooking you up with some fabulous country Christmas music every Tuesday! Let’s get started with an awesome mix of all the best: iTunes Essentials Country Christmas. You guys this has almost everybody you can think of…75 songs in all ranging from Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, and Little Big Town to Gene Autry, Elvis, and Merle Haggard!
I’ll go ahead and list off my favorite songs that you must listen to: A Baby Changes Everything by Faith Hill, Hard Candy Christmas by Dolly Parton, Please Come Home for Christmas by Willie Nelson. And oh man, Christmas in Dixie by Alabama…that’ll definitely take you back.
So, do you bust out the Christmas music at the holidays? And if so, who are your favorites? I want to know!! I would love to add to MY ongoing list of holiday music. Next week I’ll share with you my all time favorite Christmas album.

What did yall watch last week? I’m obvs all over the new Texas Women episodes, it’s sort of an addiction at this point…what will those crazy ladies be saying and wearing, they’ve definitely got me tuned in. I’m also a sucker for the Behind the Videos that GAC airs.
Lots of stuff on this week featuring just about anybody you’d ever want to see. I would like to recommend the Who Do You Think You Are with Tim McGraw if you haven’t already seen it, it’s quite interesting his family tree… And I’ll of course be watching all of the Behind the Video’s on GAC.

@blakeshelton – Ahhh!!! that’s it!!! I can’t take it anymore!!! What’s the difference in scallop potatoes and potatoes au gratin!?!?
@Dolly_Parton – I look just like the girl next door…if you happen to live next door to an amusement park.
And now the Levi’s…Have you entered to win a pair of Levi’s? We are working with Petite Elefant and giving away 2 pairs! Ends on Tuesday….so hurry and enter!!
And by the way Blake…per Families.com , “Scalloped potatoes are a milk based potato dish. The potatoes are usually sliced very thinly although what technically makes it ‘scalloped’ is the milk base. A gratin on the other hand is any dish that is topped with cheese and/or bread crumbs and layered with bits of butter and is baked until brown and crispy.”
