It sure isn't Christmas without at least one round of the holidays classic "Silver Bells". Fortunately for us, one country version of the tune is so enticing and unforgettable that we're prepared to listen to it all season long!
Country music legend Merle Haggard recording his version of the song back in 1973 and included it in his Merle Haggard's Christmas Present, a Christmas album that captured a variety of the holiday classics and brought joy to the home of many.
Haggard's performance, although very simple and pure, humbly captures the elements of the holidays as his soothing voice effortlessly carries each lyric. The calming music perfectly showcased the singer's talent, as well as instilled a warm sense of holiday spirit into listeners in light of its honest lyrics, "In the air there's a feeling of Christmas/ Children laughing, people passing/ Meeting smile after smile/ And on every street corner you hear."
His voice smoothly transitions to the chorus as he proudly sings, "Silver bells, silver bells/ It's Christmas time in the city/ Ring-a-ling/ Hear them ring/ Soon it will be Christmas day."
Listen to Haggard's performance and get yourself in the holiday spirit!
