Known for her beautiful vocals and dazzling country hits, Trisha Yearwood released her very first Christmas album in 1994 featuring a mix of both classic and new holiday tracks that captured the hearts of fans everywhere.
It was for this album that Yearwood covered a 1934 Christmas song written as a beautiful tribute to honor Jesus during the celebration of his birth.
The song, “Sweet Little Jesus Boy”, is a classic tune filled with nostalgia of times past and powerful references to the Nativity. Over the years a seemingly endless number of singers have covered this hit originally penned by Robert MacGimsey.
