With the holiday season here once again, WKDQ has begun to play the Christmas tunes you know and love.  From traditional tunes like "O Holy Night,' perfected by artists like John Berry, to more recent classics, like 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' by Vince Vance and The Valliants, there are some songs you hope to hear every year, but then again new songs or versions of songs that are added to the fold.  Here are some that you will year for the first time in 2014 on WKDQ!

  • Darius Rucker "What God Wants For Christmas"

    From his new Christmas album, 'Home For The Holidays,' this song is one of two orignal songs co-written by Rucker.  The songs looks past the commercialism of the holiday and asks what would God ask for if he were to write a list.

    Dan + Shay "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"

    This duo has taken the Country music world by storm this year with their superb harmonies on songs like "19 You + Me" and "Show You Off."  They do a great job taking on this traditional Christmas classic.

    Brett Eldredge "Mary, Did You Know"

    It takes a lot of soul to sing this song, that has become a Christmas standard, and few people have more soul in country music these days than Brett Eldredge.  When he sings this song, it makes me want to jump up and shout 'Amen!'

  • Kenny Chesney "Christmas In Blue Chair Bay"

    Not everyone dreams of a White Christmas, and Kenny Chesney is one of those people.  He told us 10 years ago that all he wanted for Christmas was a real good tan, and now he takes us back to the islands for this new tune!

    Frankie Ballard "Run Run Rudolph"

    Frankie Ballard really had a breakout year in Country music, and he's shown that he can rock a little bit too.  Heck, he opened for Bob Seger, so why not take on the classic rock Christmas anthem, 'Run Run Rudolph?"

  • Sara Evans "At Christmas"

    It's a rare thing, when someone gives you a new Christmas song that could become a classic.  I feel like this original tune from Sara Evans might be covered in the future as much as "Jingle Bell Rock" is today!

    Jamey Johnson "The Christmas Song"

    Jamey Johnson is one of those guys in country music that is so talented, but just doesn't fit the mold of what's popular.  Jamey just doesn't seem to care.  He's going to do things his way, just like his new Christmas EP, and his southern drawl gives a nice feel to the classic 'chestnuts roasting on an open fire...'
