John Denver Sings ‘Away In A Manger’ With Country’s Leading Ladies

John Denver Sings ‘Away In A Manger’ With Country’s Leading Ladies | Country Music Videos


In 1991, John Denver enlisted the help of fellow country stars for his Christmas special Montana Christmas Skies.

The TV special included performances from Clint Black, Kathy Mattea, and Patty Loveless. They all joined voices and performed a beautiful rendition of the beloved Christmas classic, “Away In A Manger”. 

They sat on bales of hay surrounded by the same barn animals that may have been there the night Jesus was born, including a donkey. Their version of the song is very simple, yet elegant. 

Accompanied just by guitars and a recorder, you can easily hear the beautiful harmonies. There’s no surprise why this performance is so incredible. Every person involved with the performance is a renowned country musician.

“Away In A Manger” dates back to the late nineteenth century and is considered one of the most beloved Christmas carols.

Watch the incredible performance below.
