Seasons Greetings Friends,
Today I wanted to share a list of some of my favorite holiday tunes. I don't think these will all pump you up to go further on your long run, but I do think they are pretty great.
Each year Chelsea and I find time to make some hot chocolate and watch the classic musical White Christmas. This has long been a favorite of mine, but now that we have created our own family tradition it stands out even more to me as a great holiday tune.
I've been a big fan of Mason Jennings for awhile now. His music makes me happy and in a quite moment at home, when nobody is around I sometimes pick up my guitar and play a lot of his catalog. So when I found this take on a classic song I couldn't resist.
Most of my friends are aware of my love of outlaw country. Especially Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. So when you have a song featuring Willie Nelson and Norah Jones the artist responsible for my wedding song it is necessary for me to include it in this list.
You've got a problem if you can't handle Zooey Deschnel at Christmas time. The band is She & Him and it is just makes me happy.
Every Saturday morning growing up as a child my Mom would blast music. It was cleaning day at the Koch house and her music would be motivation. One of her all time favorites was Mary, Did You Know performed by Kathy Mattea. So when a certain lady in my life shared with me the version from Penatonix it needed to be on this list.
The list could go on forever, but I'm pretty happy stopping here. Share your thoughts on my list and some of your favorite tunes in the comment section.
