I love live performances and musical specials so I was excited about this new Christmas DVD from Randy Travis. There is no better combination then Randy Travis and Christmas music. Randy Travis is one of my favorite country singers of all time. His powerful distinct voice and his passion are the main reasons he is my favorite. So take that and combine that with his deep spirituality and you have a man that can deliver country Christmas songs like no other.
Best Things About This DVD:
1. Watching Randy Travis joke and interact with the audience. He likes to have fun. He sang a funny song he wrote with a friend called “Sopapilla.” All about his love of the food.
2 . The setting of the DVD was great. It was live from Carlesbad NM. Randy even performed some of the songs in the Carlesbad Caverns!
3. Watching his reading of “The Christmas Guest”
4. Being able to see the passion and spirituality Randy expresses when he sings.
My Favorite Songs on The DVD:
1. “How Do I Wrap My Heart Up For Christmas” was one of my favorites. It is a song Randy wrote with Paul Overstreet. It is just so classic Randy Travis! I love it!
2. Randy sang “Silent Night” with the choir in Carlesbad Caverns. It was just beautiful.
3. My absolute favorite song on the DVD was Randy singing “Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire.” His voice and style just fits that song so perfectly!
I loved getting to see the live concert version but I wish Randy had released a CD companion with the DVD. When people are looking for Christmas music they don’t think DVD. I am afraid people are going to miss out on this wonderful music because it is a DVD and not a CD. He sings songs on this DVD he hasn’t recorded on his other Christmas CD’s. So check out this DVD and other Randy Travis Christmas CDs below.
