About.com Rating 5 Star Rating


All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good

All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan - Kenny Chesney

The Bottom Line

This album isn't for anyone that wants the tried and true traditional arrangements of Christmas songs. Some of the music is island-inspired and some is inspired by Kenny's East Tennessee upbringing.

Guide Review - All I Want For Christmas is a Real Good Tan - Kenny Chesney

This is Kenny's first Christmas CD. Inside the cover, you read about Kenny's past few Christmas holidays spent in the Island. He also says that many of his Christmas' were spent in East Tennessee, so you will hear influences from both places.

There is a definite island feel to "All I Want For Christmas is a Real Good Tan." He talks about what he wants for Christmas. This song fits Kenny to a T, and is fun to listen to.

Kenny has two duets on the album. The first "Christmas in Dixie" is an Alabama favorite, and Randy Owen from the group sings along with Kenny here. It's a winner. The other duet is Willie Nelson's classic "Pretty Paper." Again, it's really done well. Kenny and Willie sound great together.

Two of my favorite songwriters, Skip Ewing and Kent Blazy wrote "Just a Kid," which tells the story of Jesus, and how the Pharisees said that the story of Jesus is just a "Hebrew prophecy," and that he's just a kid, how can he be a king. Great song!

This is a very enjoyable Christmas album. A little different in places, a little traditional in others. I'll definitely be playing this often during the holiday.
