If you grew up in a family like mine, you probably have your own curated, established list of Christmas classics.
My parents were more into traditional Christmas songs – Mariah Carey and Wham! were strictly forbidden – so I have a soft spot in my heart for those melodies that have weathered the decades and elicit feelings of nostalgia everytime they’re played.
That’s probably why I got all gooey inside the first time I heard Carrie Underwood sing The Little Drummer Boy as a beautiful duet with her son…
When she revealed in 2020 that she would be releasing an album around everyone’s favorite holiday season, Christmas, the excitement among her followers was great.
The CD in question included a beguiling combination of Christmas classics and Carrie’s own creative creations. The 11th tune, however, sticks out, at least for me: you guessed it: The Little Drummer Boy.
Carrie appeared in a genuinely remarkable duet with her aforementioned son Isaiah, who took on the responsibility of performing the renowned vocals… and hit it out of the park.
